    I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial weekend with lots of basking in the sun, cool drinks and great food.  I originally planned on posting this over the weekend, but things got way too busy.  We had birthdays, graduation parties and our 5 year old daughter broke her arm.

    Say what?!?!

    Yep, she decided to go down the slide head first and when she landed she said her arm went in a circle.  Just typing that makes me cringe.  They put in three pins and a split cast because her arm was too swollen for the cast to be closed all the way.  So, we go back on Monday to have the cast redone.  Then she will only have to wear her cast for 2-3 more weeks!  I was expecting 6 weeks so when they gave that time frame I was relieved.

    Of course, she didn’t tell us the whole story until we came home from the hospital (well actually she told our oldest and then she told us).  All she said was that she fell off the bottom of the slide.  So, we were trying to figure out how on earth she broke her arm.  We figured she must have been going down the slide pretty fast and landed on her arm wrong.  But nope she decided to try going head first.

    Oh well, like my husband said it’s probably the first of many more injuries to come.  And the nurses and docs were pretty impressed that this was our first broken bone in the family.

    So, a little bit about these poppers.  They are extremely easy to make and taste soooo good!  And since you will have your grill fired up making some burgers or steaks throw these guys on too and you will have an awesome side dish!  No need to heat up the house for a side dish, just make it on the grill.   Just make sure your bacon is wrapped really well around the jalapeno so the filling doesn’t come out 🙂

    Servings: 5
    Author: Countryside Cravings
    Ingredients
    • 4 oz cream cheese softened
    • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
    • 1/4 teaspoon each onion powder garlic powder
    • 5 small jalapenos
    • 10 slices bacon
    Instructions
    1. Preheat grill to medium heat. Clean and oil grates.
    2. In a small bowl combine the cream cheese, cheddar, onion powder and garlic powder, set aside.
    3. Carefully cut each jalapeno in half horizontally leaving the stem intact (try to split the stem in half too) Using a spoon scrape out the ribs and seeds. Wear gloves while doing this or wash immediately after you are done.
    4. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese mixture then wrap a piece of bacon around the pepper. Make sure to wrap well and cover all of the cheese. Secure bacon with 1-2 toothpicks. Place on the grill cheese side down first and grill for a total of 15 minutes (or until bacon is cooked through) Watch your peppers carefully and turn often to help avoid flare ups. If flare ups are becoming a problem place a piece of foil on the grates then place peppers on top.
