You, the orange pepper!
Well it definitely did
I hope everyone’s happy Monday was, er, happy! And that you proved the psychologists wrong by having just as happy a Tuesday.
Mine was better than I thought it would be.
I was driving to work thinking that Thursday in court + Friday off + mad day on Monday + deadline = aarghhh…
But, as is the nature of my job, lots of big stories broke today, (including one for the front page of the edition I’m responsible for – phew) and, because some of them covered other areas, I wasn’t nearly as flat out as I thought, which is always a bonus!
When I got home, late, (love Dave when he refuses to come in!) I had no idea what to have for dinner, until I caught sight of the pepper in the fridge. I’d never had an orange one – and it’s SO orange – but had no idea what to do with it.
In the end, I wilted spinach and sauted mushrooms, mixed them with some Philadelphia and stuffed them into the pepper.
Baked at 180C for about 20 minutes, then I sprinkled cheese on the top and left it under the grill until the cheese melted…
With the usual veg mountain, only this time it included another new one – pak choi. Bought a while ago and forgotten about, or rather, hidden beneath the other thousands of vegetables in the fridge!
I’m glad I found it though; so sweet and crisp! A perfect addition to the pepper and leftover roast veg mash-up, inspired by Averie, which I made the other day.
And useful too; I think I’ll stuff the other half with something else tomorrow – just another reason to be happy!
Have you tried any new veg lately? Any recommendations for additions to my vegetable mountains?!
