Cheetos Extra Flamin' Hot

Came home from work yesterday to find hubby had picked me up a bag of these when he had been in the grocery store. So of course I had to try them. OH BOY! Yup, they are twice as hot as the regular Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Didn't seem to be at first, but the heat quickly built up. Kinda got a bit painful after a bit, but it was hard to stop eating them. The endorphins went into overtime. The heat stuck around for quite a while and eventually faded. Will I buy them again? Probably on occasion. The older I get, the more I like spicier foods, but these are a little bit more than I like on a regular basis. When I do get a hankering for something this spicy, I will make sure I have plenty of sour cream based dip on hand to help mitigate the heat.

Sweet potato pancakes with turkey and gravy

I love holiday leftovers. Made pancakes out of the leftover sweet potato stuff I made and I have some yummy lunches this week. I used brandy in the potatoes originally, didn't feel like buying a bottle of bourbon just for one recipe. I added 3 eggs and a bit over a cup of GF all purpose flour and then onto the electric griddle and VOILA! Great use of leftover side dish.
