On Sunday I made stuffed peppers for PB and I. It was a nostalgic thing to make as my mom made them often when I was growing up. Sadly, however, I never learned to make them with her as she always made them while I was at school!
I made an error in not soaking the rice first in boiling water, but simply in warm water. This totally messed up the whole dish. It ended up taking SO LONG to get the rice to cook, and by the time it did the peppers were all smooshy and collapsed when my tongs touched them. I was sad. i salvaged two of them for dinner but the rest were ruined. I am not one to waste food and they tasted so amazing so I tossed the pepper mish mash into a pyrex, topped it with the tomato sauce it goes with, added some shredded mozz, and broiled it. It ended up being really good! If we were planning on having guests over I would have been really sad, but luckily I tested this out on the two of us first. Next time I’ll follow an actual recipe.
I had one little serving for lunch today, and sent the rest home with the boy. It was extremely tasty, and the picture does not do it justice.
Oh! and yesterday morning I got a lovely package from Gina. Thank you so so much for the Z-bars!!! I had one right away and it was so awesome! I hope I can find them in Rhodey soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And must I mention the monthly need for a take 5 bar? I had two mini halloweenies, didn’t take a picture bc I must have not been thinking straight. Banishing these from my view immediately!
