Stuffed Peppers with Bulgar, Walnuts, and Lemon pp. 251

  Ok, so I tried sauteed peppers, and I did not like either recipe.   I entered this recipe with great fear, but I knew that I had to make it.  Otherwise, I would not successfully cook through this cookbook.  I quite dislike the taste of peppers, but I am going to be strong.

Problem Solving:   
  This recipe required Bulgar.  Sad part is, I could not find any Bulgar, or even barley!  So I bought some orzo,  it just had to do.
  I used the small peppers I bought from the farmers market.  I think that made a difference in the flavor of the peppers.  If there is a difference in flavors between store bought and farmers market, I think I am going to only purchase the farmers market ones IF I have to.   Making this dish with the smaller peppers did not bother me,  since we have a smaller family, and the kids do not have the desire to really eat the peppers anyways.  I just cooked them for less time.

Results:   The filling was great.  I loved the walnuts and the orzo made a great texture.  I sat and stared at the pepper.  I think it stared back at me.  I really did not want to eat it.  I did how ever try a little bit and I liked it.  Anyways,  this one is over with.

Other news:

  I made some pancakes from my Joy of Cooking book.   I made the Whole-Grain Griddle Cakes (pp.236).  They reminded me of the Blini I once ate in Russia.  
These were of course much thicker and not been made with buckwheat.  But I think the whole milk yogurt made the wonderful flavor.

  1. I LOVE the "and I liked it" in small print! Ha ha!! They might have been sweeter because they were smaller...not necessarily just because they were from the farmer's market. You wouldn't like my garden then....I have 17 pepper plants. It's one of the few veggies I eat (happily). :
