  11. I have just become a fan of fresh figs and I love, love, love this idea of combining the sweet fig with the spicy jalapeno! What a great recipe -- I would eat this with a spoon. I am fairly new to blogging and I never knew how time consuming it was. I have two kids thrown into the mix so the blog does fall short of being "extraordinary" or updated as it should. I'm glad you had a lovely mini-vacation. Sounds like a great time. :)bowtie
