Over the past couple of years I have been finding ways to use leftovers to make new recipes. I came up with so many ideas and I wish I had jotted them down or started this blog earlier to keep track of them but I didn’t so here I am now.
Yesterday was a lazy Sunday for us. I was pretty bored and considering the space the men were occupying in the house, I certainly could not do any cleaning, so to fill my boredom I decided to make stuffed chili peppers with some leftovers from dinner two days ago.
~ Grilled chicken and vegetables, and a rice and broccoli casserole mix. I used my little nifty chopper to do the obvious(chop).
After preparing the stuffing mixture for the peppers. I gutted the peppers of the all seeds. Whoa let me tell you they had such a strong aroma I had a coughing fit and my eyes watered. My little guy Matthew who likes to watch me cook geared up when he watched me go through my coughing ordeal.
After cleaning the peppers, place on a cookie sheet and coat with a light layer of olive oil. Bake in the over for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. While these are roasting that is when I chopped my mix up. After the peppers are done, stuff with mixture and top with cheddar cheese. Actually, you can use any type of cheese you prefer.
Bake in the oven at 375º for about 20 minutes. The last 5 minutes I like to broil to give it a little crisp on top.
They really came out delicious. I was pretty impressed and after cleaning the seeds out and baking them, they weren’t that spicy hot at all.
Pinterest is going to have the death of me I swear. I browse, I pin, I do, I eat, therefore I’m probably going to become a roll. Well not all of the dishes I’m making are fattening. I made low to no carb stuffed chili peppers, barbecue shredded chicken, and zucchini muffins. And, to boot, that was all just today of which I will be posting about later on tonight. I have to say I am pretty impressed with myself and how all those recipes came out. Once again I tweaked them because of lack of ingredients and wanted to add my own touch. Is that legal on the internet? Can I call them my own recipe? Hmmm… that’s it for now. Laters bloggers.
Blogging, a perfect way to avoid your chores for the day. I find when I’m having an awful day, I just pop open my laptop, hit w for WordPress, scroll down, click, enter password, and escape. I can sit and read different blogs all night and then switch back to mine looking at my pics and background deciding on whether or not to change it for the 50th time. It feels so good to get away sometimes and it doesn’t cost me a cent!
My day started out playing Sponge Bob Sorry with the boys. I won 3 times during this one game but since I was mommy, the rules state that technically I’m not allowed to win because I was the oldest sitting at the table. How lucky am I that I have the opportunity to wake up with my rugrats in the morning, every morning as a matter of fact, spend the day with them hearing their giggles. I’m so lucky. The rest of the day consisted of tearing apart my closet between logging on to check pinterest, Facebook, and my blog so you can just imagine how far I got with that. Eh there is always tomorrow right? Right, lol. For now peace out. I have a lot more to say about love, life, the thoughts on my mind but it’s already 11:33 p.m. and my eye lids are getting heavy. Nighters world.
