This morning for breakfast I had a large slice of cantaloupe covered with ground, black pepper. There is something very appealing to me about black on orange. I like the taste, too. I wonder how many people feel the same way?

I've never heard of doing that. Is that common where you live?

As far as I know I am the only person in the world who does this. Now that the word is out, maybe I'll start a trend.

Pepper...
I used to enjoy black pepper on a variety of foods. I can't recall ever trying it on cantaloupe. Over the last five years I have not eaten much black pepper. I have found that black pepper causes unpleasant pain in my abdomen. I don't know but, this *might* be related to diverticulitis. I do continue to enjoy pepper sauces. I have several different types of hot sauce in my refrigerator. I LOVE Frank's Red Hot. I also like garlic flavored Tabasco sauce as well as many different, "off brands" of hot sauce. Most Chinese restaraunts have an oil based hot sauce that is GREAT. It is a mixture of crushed, dried Cayenne, peppers and some sort of oil.
When I am taking a break from my current eating habits, I try hot wings. When I am visiting another town, I usually try six - 12 hot wings from a local restaurant and almost always pleased.

Re: Pepper...
I have often read that hot pepper sauces are good for your health. Even if this wasn't true, I would be using them anyway. Will you be bringing any hot peppers when you visit?

Re: Pepper...
With any luck, I will be bringing Jalapenos. I have plenty of flowers on the plants and that almost always means lots of peppers. The challenge will be helping my plants avoid damage from Cindy and/or Dennis.

I have become a pepper snob
It started out innocently enough. My wife at the time (X now) gave me/us a nice wooden-framed pepper grinder for Jebusmas a few years back. It was nice -really nice. I realized that pepper tastes good when it is fresh -not like ashes out of an ash tray.

Then, I bought some high-end pepper corns at a Chinese spice market in Chicago and I've gone up another notch in the pepper-snob hierarchy. It is so damn good. I can't even use pepper from a pepper shaker at a restaurant anymore.

I think the idea of freshly-ground pepper on the simple muskmelon sounds divine. I think I'll try it the next time I have it. Thanks for the idea.

So do you bring your own pepper grinder when you go out to dinner? ;-)

Re: I have become a pepper snob
I have at times. They tend to look at you funny. Usually I just go without it.
