We loved baked poppers. I Slice jalapenos in half lengthwise, deseed and remove the membrane, so they aren't too spicy. Then I fill them with soft cream cheese using a table knife. Next, I sprinkled some onion and garlic powder and topped them with smoked paprika.
Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn. When eating them, in case one is too spicy, I keep a glass of milk nearby. Water does not stop the heat, but milk does help.
We went to a local secondhand store called the Picker's Barn. Gary spotted another well-made stuffed bear for Bonkers. Bonkers' old bear has taken quite a beating from him playing with the bear. I initially set the bear on the kitchen floor. At first Bonkers just looked at the bear, then he circled around him and then sniffed him. When I turned my back, the bear had disappeared. Bonkers had carried the bear into the bedroom.
He started sniffing him some more and deciding the best approach to take to tame the bear. A little bit of a downer fact, I read that 48% of domestic abuse partners say they would not leave their situation because they couldn't take their pets. Not that I am an abused partner, but the article also said their organization was making a change to enable folks to take their pets with them. I wish I had saved the article.
