Trying Something New – Stuffed Mini-Peppers

mini bell peppersWe’ve been incredibly lazy lately. It’s been hot outside, we’ve been trying to get projects around the house done up and neither one of us really wants to cook (me in particular since being in the kitchen drudges up bad memories and stresses me out).

Mostly we’ve been eating cold pasta salads and homemade bread. I swear, our bread/pastry consumption will be the death of me. Anyway, we had bought these mini-bell peppers a while back and I wasn’t about to waste them. We still had some leftover diced squash/random veggies that also needed to be eaten so I pitched the idea of stuffed peppers.

stuffed peppers, precookedI want to do this recipe with the normal-sized bell peppers because it tastes so good – at least it did in my memory. Perhaps I’m just waxing nostalgic again, but these mini-peppers were awesome and lamented that we didn’t have more!

We had about half a cup to a cup of each diced vegetable (butternut squash, marrow squash, onion, and some veggie crumble, along with a clove or two of garlic, topped with goat cheese), mixed it all up in a bowl and then began stuffing our mini-peppers.

I voted chopping off the tops, but deferred to the better-half’s expertise. The argument was that since they were so tiny, they couldn’t stand up on their own and all the stuffing would fall out. I figured if we packed everything in, nothing would move. In the end, I still pushed to try a few my way and you know what? They totally worked. I may not know much, but I got some good ideas.

Talk to me!

So, did you ever second-guess yourself and only later attempt it? Was it a success or did you keep the idea to yourself?
