For Lack of Anything Better.. I'll Go With Lame!
|Although I enjoy my little blog for really nothing more than the fun of usually makin an arse of myself on the internet, when I don't post often I kind of feel guilty. Not being able to cook much because of time constraints or when "life" takes over doesn't so much make me want to get back in the kitchen to nourish myself and Hubbs.. but because Holy Shit! I haven't blogged in like 5 days!! hehee Okay well no, not really - I cook because it's my passion and I get cranky when I don't get to relax in my kitchen (but my wee blog is always in the back of my mind).|
So nothing has really changed here lately. Working long days and then visits up at the hospital to see Wayne's mom.. leaving me no time to do much in my kitchen other than heat up something previously frozen or firing up the grill before exhaustion takes over and I pass out on the loveseat while trying to catch up on my taped Project Runway episodes. The good news is, she's doing much better and they've moved her to a different hospital where she will have physical therapy for the next few weeks - yay! I'm so happy she pulled through this.. she gave us all quite a scare!
This particular post is regarding these adorable lil bell peppers I found at the supermarket.. teeny tiny versions of the normal bell peppers that are a staple at my house. Red, orange and yellow mini's that I could not pass up regardless of how many times I picked them up and put them back when I looked at the price tag - almost $4.00 for the package! Gah. But in the end, the cuteness won and I bought them. Now what the hell to do with them?? Not like they are going to feed us as a main dish, eh?
har!! I went with stuffing them with onion & chive cream cheese then laying a piece of bacon on top before baking for 20 minutes in a 375º F. oven. What rule did I forget about bacon?? Yes.. yes indeedy I forgot that bacon will shrink when it's cooked. So what I thought were big slabs being laid on top ended up being well.. hardly there! Well regardless of how they looked (teee!), they turned out quite delicious and made a nice dinner of nibbles paired with some previously made and frozen Hand-Hacked Pot Stickers. Quick and easy and very tasty, indeed. :D
