You're welcome!

And as for the storm - what a damp squib! (No issues in my area at all.)

It looks like cayenne to me. I have some in the garden right now.

That's what I was thinking, too. I grow them every couple years and dry/grind them to make homemade cayenne pepper. I don't think I've ever eaten one fresh, although I don't see any reason why you couldn't.

Tonight I have band rehearsal so it will be an early dinner. I might whip up a quick batch of tomato soup, since I have all the ingredients on hand and don't feel much like running out to pick up something else.

Odd things you've said suggest that you or your family may have originated up here. Or am I mistaken?

Nope! I was born in London and parents were both Irish. Ancestors all Irish and Scottish also. (I do have some distant relatives in and around Manchester, but I've never met them.)

in the recent move I discovered an unopened bag of giant couscous bought in Safeway in Amman, Jordan in 1992. I really think I should throw it away now......
