Saturday Mix – Double Take, 17 February 2018

Thanks Sarah for choosing our homophone sets this week.

They are:

hail – frozen rain
hale – robust health

Classic memory of the words “All hale Caesar” and visions of some guy dressed in Mum’s best white sheets getting soaked to the skin in the hail and rain.


Chile – South American country
chili – dried pod of red pepper
chilly – uncomfortably cool

I’ve never been to Chile, and often wondered if that’s where the chili peppers originated.
I understand that the smaller they are, the hotter.
I’ve cooked chili con carne but rely on the ground powdered variety adding kidney beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes and our rather mellow red, green and yellow peppers to the meat mix. Perfect for a chilly day!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
