Spring

Standard
Spring

It seems the Winter has finally lifted its foot off my little neck of the woods. Though the temperature is still a but touchy, it feels good to look forward to the sun blinding me with a cool,not cold, breeze on my back. I’m also looking forward to bringing Avery outside more. I have been itching to show the entire neighborhood the cause for my tired eyes and reflective smile.

But its not all sunshine and rainbows despite the rising temperatures. I dont know what to do with myself. Ive been going back in forth in my mind about whether I want to go back to work outside the house or make a real go of working from home. Both options scare me but for different reasons. Going back to work outside is fine but my mom would watch the children and her health is not the best. Daycare is not an option because I just don’t trust people. I have a friend who could maybe help me out but she has 7 children of her own.

On the flip side, I could make a go of being a work at home mom. I have affiliate links on here and I could stary reaching out to brands to work with. I have people in my online community who could help me figure out how to approach brands,come up wit a media kit,etc. The down side to that is I probably won’t be making much to start off with. However, my ideal situation is to work from home so I can take care of the kids and look after my mom.

I am really confused as to what my next steps are going to be. I know I need an income as soon as possible and I need to be proactive in making things happen. But while I’m praying and waiting on the Lord to order my steps, I’m going to enjoy this time of renewal,fresh starts, and beautiful tulips. Maybe the answer will reveal itself in the nature around me,who knows?

MommyInColorCooks: Stuffed Green Peppers

MommyInColorCooks: Stuffed Green Peppers

9I first tried stuffed peppers while staying in a hotel during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. From then I promised to try making them myself one day. And thanks to Pinterest, that day came. I did a quick broadcast of it and you can find it here.

I got the recipe from Mommy Hates Cooking and I chose it for its simple ingredients. I did skip the green onion only because I am just unwilling to try it. Enjoy and let me know your own stuffed green peppers recipes in the comments.

Ingredients

  • 6 Green Bell Peppers
  • 1 Pound Lean Ground Beef Uncooked
  • 1 Taco Seasoning Packet or Gluten Free Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Cup Uncooked Rice
  • 3 Green Onions sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Black Beans
  • Shredded Cheese

DIRECTIONS

1.Spray cooker with cooking spray.

2. Cut tops off peppers but keep then remove seeds.

3.Mix together all ingredients except cheese. Stuff peppers with mixture, replace pepper tops.

4. Put in 1/4 cup water at bottom of cooker. Cook on low 8 hours

5. Remove pepper tops,put cheese on top, allow it to melt and serve.

NOTES:

After plating, the pepper fell apart. The long cook time is at fault so next time I might cook the rice before hand,then lower cook time.

For 6 peppers to fit choose smaller peppers,I chose a couple large ones so I ciuld only fit 5. I had mixture left over.

It was a very hearty meal,despite not many ingredients. Was a hit with the family and I will make it again.
