Scared to Try

Today is Five Minute Fridays so lets link up and write
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from my week Instagram feed that match the words of this week.
Topic: Try

New can be scary
The fear of failure can stall one to stop , to not even try.
But sometimes something comes so naturally that you just know you're meant to try.
That the love of doing it comes and fights out the fear of trying.

The excitement of something new starts once the fear is gone.
The hope that it works.
In this case also the hope to share God's message is mixed into that excitement.
I can wait to announce the new but it will be a bit still.

Until then here is to the new.

Blistered Shishito Peppers

When we were in Orlando earlier this year, we tried shishito peppers at Emril's restaurant and loved them. But when we came back up to Minnesota we couldn't find them. Our local grocery stores didn't carry them. Thankfully Trader Joes came to the rescue!
All you need is extra-virgin olive oil, whole shishito peppers and sea salt
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook peppers, turning occasionally, until they begin to blister on all sides.
Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
Now be careful every now and then one of these babies can be hot!
The waiter at the restaurant told us to take just a nibble off the end of the pepper before taking a larger bite. We were very happy for this tip in the Trader Joe group. These ones had much more of a kick than the Orlando ones. None were the tears in the eyes hot but definitely kicky.  
I have to say even with the kick this time, I would still make them again.
