A pepper-infused Vodka martini with marinated jalapeno slices... yes!
This is the ultimate nightcap to cap a great day of writing! Smooth, cold, salty with that snap of jalapeno at the end!
One of our favorite restaurants (now closed!) served these at the bar. We would go get a plate of appetizers or two and order this to end the day. Awesome.
This was the 'Snow-Mageden' from last week. A inch of snow here is like two feet in Colorado. Problem here is really the ice below it, not the snow. 'Black Ice' is a real danger here during any freeze storm. You just don't go out, because they can't seem to get the sanding/melting timing correct. That and drivers in Texas are already, uh, 'challenged', when it comes to any snow driving. ;-)
And finally, this is just too close to home... ;-)
Make it a great week, everyone!

At almost 70, I'm going to get back on the music train. I'm going to start taking guitar lessons again!
I was taking lessons for a few years before my heart attack in 2016. Loved it! I would put in a 10 hour day at work (software developer) and then scoot off to a local music store to spend an hour with a great instructor. I have to check with him before I say who it was. I'm hoping he will be able to take me in again.
We split our time between playing classical spanish guitar music on my Yamaha C-40 and blues on my Gretsch G5120 Electromatic guitars. That's a little practice Fender amp and a Vox amp in the corner.
