These adorable little stuffed peppers have been hanging out in my Pinterest feed for several months, but it just didn’t feel like it was time to make them yet. Now, it’s time. Don’t they look delicious? I did, however, have enough foresight to read the reviews of these Stuffed Peppers, and several people mention that they’re bland. I didn’t add it to the grocery list, but I’ll be adding some tomato paste into the mixture before I stuff the peppers. That should help combat the “bland” factor. So, if you want to also add tomato paste to yours, make sure to add this to your grocery list!

I am insanely excited about this recipe…

Because, a) it contains pasta, and b) the pasta cooks right in the skillet, which is another of my most recent fascinations. I’m of course going to make it non-spicy so that I don’t make the toddler unhappy.

Weekly Menu: Week 26 (6/24/13-6/28/13)

It’s Saturday! Holy crap, I’m so late in posting the menu! Obviously, it’s been a busy week. Now that I finally have the menu finished, I have to still do my grocery shopping today. Should be a nice relaxing day! Right!

Did you know that I’m having a baby in about 4 months? FOUR MONTHS. FOUR MONTHS!!!!! When I was pregnant with my daughter, this is around the time when I started to feverishly stock my freezer with meals that I could just throw in the oven while I was on maternity leave. The last thing I imagine I’ll want to do when baby boy arrives is spend my weekends cooking. So, prepare for an onslaught of freezer stocking coming up in the next few weeks. This will be a little extra work on the weekends, but it will help in the long run.

In any case, you’ll probably be happy to know that the menu has a little more variety this week, considering that my food aversions are mostly a thing of the past now. I am still not really a fan of pork at the moment, but it never really was one of my favorites anyway (or meat in general).

Last week, the star of the show was definitely the Crockpot Chicken & Gravy. We paired it with spelt egg noodles, and it was delicious! We were able to find gravy packets at our organic market (they were of a more “natural” variety than the conventional gravy packets), so I felt a little less YUCK about using packaged gravy. I plan to throw this recipe into the rotation, and next time I’ll add celery, carrots, and a little extra seasoning to make it healthier.

For the new menu, I’m most excited about this beautiful creation…

Served with a mixed green salad on the side (or even put the peppers right on top of the mixed greens)…doesn’t this seem like the perfect summertime dinner? Can’t wait.

I’m keeping it simple this week, since things don’t seem to be slowing down over here. However, there is some extra cooking in my future next weekend, since I’m virtually out of all of my standard breakfast freezer staples. My freezer is looking kind of bare on the “breakfast” shelf. So, I’ll be searching for some new muffins and such throughout the coming week (as time allows).

Here’s the new recipes:

And the recycled:

So there ya have it!

Here’s the Menu, the Plan, and the Grocery List.

Have a fantastic week!
