Stuffed peppers [Aug. 26th, 2010|06:31 pm]
Zoethe
I always make more stuffing than I have peppers, more peppers than I have pan, and much more food than I have people to feed. But the good news is that the leftovers reheat very well.

Also, I grated my thumb.

There's nothing I love more than grated thumb on my house salad.

grated thumb sounds better than it is. it doesnt really go with anything. you should try Romano instead.

and stuffed peppers freeze and re heat very well.

tea? hugs? virtual band aids?

I chose to brave it out - it really wasn't that bad and didn't bleed into anything!

After living four years with Preston and his parents, it took me a long time to figure out how to cook for two people.

I prefer cooking for four or more. And today I had that!

My grandmother always joked that bits of scraped knuckle were part of her secret to various recipes. And now I am sad, thinking of my grandmother, but in kind of a bittersweet way.

Grandmothers are wonderful and we miss them when they are gone.

My dad claimed that the turkey stuffing tasted different after I started cooking, because it was my fingers grated with the carrots and celery rather than my mom's.

My Nana used to burst into just the first line of "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" all through December. At the time, it was kind of irritating. Now, it doesn't feel quite like Christmas without it.

More stuffing than peppers is a good thing for Ferrett, no?

A very good thing for Ferrett. But even after I removed a generous helping from him I had to kind of...heap up the remaining stuffing.

But it was yummmmmmy!!!

After having seven kids (and frequently, their friends) to cook for, it took quite awhile to adjust for cooking for the three of us now at home. I still have leftovers after almost every supper!!

I bet! Leftovers can be beneficial, though!

It's so good to know that I'm not the only one with that problem! Happens every time I make stuffed peppers, too. I've actually had a lot of trouble "scaling back" on my cooking. At one point, when all the kids were living at home, I was cooking for 6-8 people (depending on how many of the kid's friends were around). So, therefore, what I have are mostly "recipes to feed the Mongol Hordes". Because I always planned for leftovers, since we were working odd schedules, and people could re-heat as needed. Now that we're down to just my hubby, the youngest & myself; I end up with way too much food. Luckily, some things are "freezable", so it just means an "instant" dinner later on down the road. But I actually miss cooking for a large group.

I'd much rather cook for many. Cooking for few feels sort of pointless.
