Happy Peppers

It's been raining here for days and days and days. And if it isn't raining, the sky is still overcast. So needless to say, the constant lack of sunshine and the gray world has begun to get to me.
But I have found the cure and, mostly because I'm me, the cure tastes GOOOD.

Travis is bringing me stuffed peppers tonight. I did most of the prep work already. All he has to do is stuff them and then put them in the oven and bake them until all is yummy and good. Peppers are beautiful and I love them. I've been meaning to get around to stuffing them for ages and finally they went on sale so I could actually afford a couple of the colorful ones (yellows are actually my absolute favorite). Stuffing of choice? Ground chuck seasoned with Cumin, chili powder, pepper and garlic. Mixed with that is mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, mild green chilis and sundried tomato couscous (another favorite food). Cover all that with cheese and panko bread crumbs and we have a delicious, warm pick me up.
