The Sultana issued a challenge. Create a variation of her Grilled Stuffed Peppers, and Other Things recipe. I have done just that.
Last night, lacking inspiration for dinner, and having little in the way of ingredients, I turned to the webbernets to see if I could find something. I stumbled over the Sultana’s peppers recipe, and saw her challenge. Thus inspired, I went to the fridge armed with nothing more than the thought that I should cook something and put it in something else. Ummm. Now what?
I found lurking in the depths of the crisper, a single red pepper, a bit of onion, and a couple mushrooms. To the freezer!! Once there, I located a few pork chops, you know the ones, gross and thin and not really good for anything but shake’n'bake and a frying pan. Okay. Thoughts are forming here…what else have we got? RICE!
Ingredients in hand I began to create a guilt free meal for two.
I’m not a huge fan of red peppers. A little in a salad, hidden in spaghetti sauce, that is good, but eating half of one because it’s my meal? It was really quite good. Next time I am going to put a good cheese in the bottom after flipping over the red pepper to roast on the other side. And I am going to add garlic.
Thank you Sultana for issuing the challenge. I believe I have begun to see red peppers in a new light. Also, I have come to realize that there is a new food rule to live by. We already know;
Everything is better with bacon.
When unsure about your food, stuff it with or in something else, it will likely taste better.

Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
