Vegan Stuffed Peppers


Our Good weather is gone and the cold dreary rainy weather has arrived. Boo! Baring teeth smile along with the wonderful weather my headache is back!! I know it is weather and allergy related and it is so annoying.

I cannot believe tomorrow is the day I meet with my surgeon. We are still trying to figure out a way for Kevin to come with me. I really really hope we can figure out a way to juggle getting Robbie on the bus and Austin to work later in the day. I really do not want to have to drive up alone, especially with these headaches. Whatever happens I will go, meet with Dr. Toder, get my next step from her.

I will share what happens with you, quite possibly via a vlog instead, we shall see. I've been wanting to start vlogging and seems like a good as time as any, right? Definitely a lot less typing on my iPod!!! Thumbs up

How about a new recipe?

This was a first try making stuffed peppers and I really liked them quite a lot. I will probably tweak the spices a bit more and will update when I do.

If you try this, please come back and let me know what you thought and should you tweak it, let me know what you do as well.

Until next time...

Thank you! These peppers look absolutely amazing. I am working on collecting plant based recipes, because I am transitioning into a primarily plant based diet. I will absolutely be trying these...probably very soon!
