Before this turns smutty, I'm not talking about that kind of 'hot', alright?! Last year we went to Turkey in the height of the season - August. Temperatures soared into the 40's and if that weren't hot enough, we decided to take the children to a traditionally Turkish restaurant to sample some local cuisine. It turns out, that the Turks are rather fond of their spices; in particular, chilli!
Firstly, let me explain: the OH likes to encourage our children to experience different flavours and hot, spicy food is a penchant of his (that lets me off the hook!). Towards the end of the main course, he challenged them to eat a whole chilli - not just any old chilli, the kind that we might find in our British supermarkets, but the most enormous chilli I have ever seen! Tween 1 and The Boy are usually pretty 'up' for most challenges but as this one came with a reward (a rather hefty one I might add!), they both accepted with glee.
Below is the rather hilarious result:
I have been waiting for an opportunity to unearth these photos, so thank you Tara Cain over at Sticky
Fingers for choosing 'C' as your word prompt for The Gallery this week. 'C' is for chilli, challenge or cruelty - take your pick!
