other dog Posted September 7, 2009 Share Posted September 7, 2009 Been a long time since I operated a crane,probably 20 years or more,but I got the red alligator in only 4 tries at Wal-Mart today. 20 years ago it only cost a quarter,now it's twice that. I guess 2 dollars for a red alligator ain't bad though. I really wanted the Cartman but I knew there was no way-i've seen them pack those machines before,so I went for the easiest looking item.Then I came home and canned these pepper rings.Got a lot of jalapeno peppers from my Dad's garden yesterday and Otherdog went too.Wasn't gonna make any more hot sauce because I still got some of last years left,but I figured 4 jars of hot pepper rings would last me a year or more so I made more anyway to use the peppers up. We use the pepper rings on nachos a lot.I like nachos,but not the kind like you get at 7-11 with the melted cheese.They gotta be hand built...takes a little time,but not much. A friend of mine from Texas told me how to make nachos-put your chips on a baking pan,put a piece of longhorn cheese on each one,then top it with a jalapeno pepper ring and just broil it until the cheese melts.Very easy, and great with a cold beer.
