Playing Tourist in Seattle

by on September 20, 2011


All those Seattleites who tell us Californians that it always rains in Seattle, are just pulling our (collective) legs! The weather this week has been beautiful.

I am here for a (kinda secret) mastermind meeting with about thirty of the smartest people I know. Before the meetings started this afternoon, I walked down to the Public Market to buy some fresh fruit for my hotel room. I came upon these hanging peppers, and I just couldn’t resist buying one for my kitchen. I don’t cook with a lot of chili peppers, but just looking at these put a smile on my face. A shout out to my friend Kit who tells me the are called “ristras.”

Bought some hanging peppers (for my kitchen) across the street from the Public Market in Seattle. Aren't they beautiful?

Great photo! But are you sure that “rista” isn’t short for “tourista”?

Ha ha ha! Here’s a little write up about how to make your own rista! http://www.customcatering.net/rista.html

I wish I could have seen your picture but my computer wouldn’t let me open it.

On your computer? That’s odd!
