If you are making one portion of mince and spuds, adding one whole chopped fresh chilli plus a spoonful of fiery chilli pesto is best described as 'overdoing it'.

I now have the feeling back in most of my face, my eyes no longer feel like raisins and I've stopped sweating like a politician on audit day.

Even so, I have a feeling I'm going to regret this in the morning. Toilet paper is on ice.

Good move on the b(l)og roll!

That sounds like a dish which would be appreciated by one I know. Earlier this week a pasta sauce was made with several similar ingredients by this 'hot cook'. At the first mouthful my throat raged, the second caused me to check in the mirror to see if my lips had disintegrated and the third I was unable chew owing to complete oral numbness.

The other mouthfuls entered the dark world of the kitchen bin.

I'd put some baby wipes in the fridge too. Always a help every half hour the following day so I'm told by the 'hot cook'.

I find that smearing a calippo ice lolly with aloe vera and slipping it up my arse is a very soothing sensation.

I have no idea how to help you with the chilli problem though....

Always make sure you wash your hands after chopping chillies. Nothing worse than forgetting and then rubbing your eyes or going for a tug.

I escaped unhurt. So far. Chillis don't develop their full potential without sun and here hasn't been much of that this year. Tonight I upped the stakes by chopping one chilli over cheese on toast. They are not as deadly as last year's crop, even though it's the same plant.

Hugh - it was enough for eyesting though. Even after washing. These are lively ones.

Anon - I've been here for decades. They are tatties when served with haggis and neeps, or in stovies. If I grow them they are spuds.

Old habits die hard.
