The thoughts featured in the post and video are mine and mine alone!

A big thanks to Gwen for reminding me yesterday that I never ended up posting this video on Monday of this week! The 4th of July weekend in Portland was absolutely crazy where we did ALL OF THE THINGS (from visiting Astoria and Cannon Beach w Haystack Rock to trying all of the beers), and it’s been a whirlwind since getting back home.

I did, however, make time to cook my new recipe for the blog. This was a stuffed pepper dish, which I had done before, with a twist. Instead of using ground beef like I usually did, I used something a little leaner and tossed in Bison meat! Aside from all the seasonings, throwing in an egg to help hold things together, and of course… some cheese for me (you don’t need to add it in!), the other fun addition this week was a pepper from the garden here at the house. This thing is called Mucho Nacho, and kind of smells like it, too!

Total Prep time took me 10-15 minutes, then I cooked it at around 400 degrees for almost 45 minutes. Since I’m not very experienced with meals like this, the oven time was trial and error for me, but that’s what I like to do for these things… try something new!

The one I have already had this week was pretty good! I added a bit of Guacamole to it, and poured a bit of salsa on top. I’ll call it a success. If you try it, let me know how it goes, if you change anything, and how you like it!
