We just ate the most amazing dinner! A couple weeks ago we were visiting our good friends, Carrie and Jesse West, and we had the most yummy stuffed peppers. It was my first stuffed pepper experience and an excellent one at that. Carrie made a rice mixture with corn and beans for the stuffing it was so good. Then a week or so later I was watching my favorite cooking show and she happened to make, Couscous Stuffed Peppers with Basil Sauce. So tonight that is what we had and they were so delicious I can't wait to have them again. The stuffing was incredible; it was full of couscous, feta, dried currants, spinach and garbanzo beans. I had to improvise a little on the basil sauce because they were out of basil at the store and the basil I am growing is not yet big enough; so I bought chives instead. Also I could not find creme fraiche so I bought mascarpone cheese. When making the sauce I added a little more olive oil and lemon juice since the mascarpone is thicker than creme fraiche. The sauce taste great and went so well with the flavors of the pepper and filling!!

Snip Snip

I cut my hair!! I have had long hair for awhile now and I have loved it. I actually didn't think I would be able to cut it and then one day I felt the urge for a change. So I made an appointment and found a picture of my new do.....take a look!

I still want to figure out what hair product to use, it's fun to wear it smooth too. It sure is a fun change for the summer!
