So I'm sure you've heard.... or maybe you haven't... salmonella has been traced to jalapenos....
That was my first thought.
Then I thought...... why, why, whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy????
And furthermore... Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!
I actually yelled this out when I saw the slug at work today "jalapenossalmonella." It was almost a wrap... right! there! at! work! (SIX DAYS LEFT!!!) You know I love Mexican food! And have plans to marry a Mexican chef (or Hispanic husband) so I can eat it daily! And that means jalapenos!!! (And chipotles... mmm!) AND I CAN'T HAVE THAT IMPEDED UPON!!
I said. You know what? I don't care!
No fresh jalapenos or salsa?
I'll get it in a jar!
And if I want to eat some fresh salsa (and can find it), I will eat it! It won't kill you! [If you're not elderly (check), an infant (check) and don't have a compromised immune system (check!)]
