Stuffed Peppers

Hmm... I can't remember what recipe I used to make these, because I'm fairly certain I just sorta winged it. 
Cook up about a half a pound of ground turkey with a can of diced tomatoes and a small amount of quick rice (maybe like 1/2 cup cooked?)... Add pepper, garlic and parsley to taste, spoon into your gutted peppers. Add some breadcrumbs and parmesan on top! Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until tender. I think I was surprised that they ended up taking longer, but they tasted pretty good.

I suppose the purpose of this post is to document the fact that I made these, and that they are a great healthy entree to consider.

Peanut Butter

Stock up now, folks!
A little birdie told me that prices are going up at least 30% next month. I bought a few jars yesterday, reduced-fat for me, and some "regular-fat" for my baking. I don't want to help spread any panic or fear of peanutpocalypse, but if you love peanut butter and don't want to pay through the nose for it, get yourself enough to last you a while. Peanuts, too! And maybe a couple Snickers bars to stash in your freezer, for "emergencies?"

Ice Cream Sandwich

These are "homemade" in the sense that nothing is homemade about them except the assembly. With more planning, I would have made them from scratch, but these were a "happy accident."

I couldn't decide which picture to post, so you get both. The ice cream is Trader Joe's french vanilla. The cookies are ginger spice. Slightly warm, because you(I) have no patience. The sandwich pretty much falls apart after the first bite, but you(I) don't care.*


*You can put these on a cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer a bit to harden them up, but it depends on preference or when you're serving them.
