The hub whipped up some tofu tonight. After cooking it, he tossed it in some buffalo sauce & we ate it with some celery & ranch. I know that you probably think I'm exaggerating, but it tasted pretty darn close to chicken. Mmmm!
One of the best feelings ever = coming home to your apartment building smelling awesome & following the aroma right to your own door. :)
The hub made stuffed peppers last night they were so, so yum! I've always had peppers stuffed with rice, but this recipe called for couscous & it was an excellent way to shake things up a bit. The hub altered the recipe a bit & his changes are reflected below. For the original recipe, click the link!
Directions: Cook couscous according to directions on the box. Meanwhile, saute onions, carrots, & mushrooms in a bit of olive oil. Cut the lids off of the peppers and set aside. Clean out the inside of the peppers. Preheat oven to 350 degrees & oil the baking dish. Mix the couscous, veggies, & tomato sauce. Scoop the stuffing into the peppers, replace the tops & set in baking dish. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until the tops are brown & have risen a bit (I think we did about 50-55 minutes). Remove the peppers from the oven, allow to cool slightly, & enjoy!
We gave these 'snobby joes' a try tonight & they were so yum!
They were a little more time consuming than most of the recipes that I try, but they were perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon with nothing to do & we probably had two more meals worth of leftovers. :) I cut down the chili powder to 2 tablespoons, but that's the only change I made. We had it on toasted bread topped with a bit of yellow mustard. Mmmm!
(One of...) My resolution is to craft more with what I already have. No new supplies, just working with what I already have in my stash to make fun things. We'll see how it goes...
(Darn those JoAnn coupons in my mailbox every week!)
The hub & I kicked off the new year with a simple, super good breakfast.
