@Jefromi: No, I haven't consciously tried a hot pepper of any kind. Only once, jalapeno, with seeds, by mistake. Not fun.

comment What are alternate uses for leftover buttermilk?
The most obvious - drink it! Have hot mushed potato on a plate, some meat next to it and cold buttermilk in a glass. Yum.

comment How to warm plates before serving?
I think one could put dishes on the drying rack and then in the oven. This way more dishes are in and they're not stacked.
