Stuffed With Love

Its nights like tonight that make me wish I had someone. Not because I hate being alone... no, more like it'd be fun to have someone to share things with. Like the fact that I made stuffed peppers. And they were good. Brittney tipped me off to the Kraft website. Which is brilliant. And inspired me to try something not dessert related (cause thats really the only kind of cooking I usually do). I mean, lets not pretend... I made cookies too. But I tried a main course dish for once. It was really really easy.
It called for simulated beef pouches.
Hello. I'm from Alberta. We dont do "simulated beef"

So I mixed the beef, salsa, corn, instant rice and water together. Cut some peppers and then stuffed them.

Covered them with tinfoil and popped them in the oven.

Then uncovered and baked some cheese on top.

And Viola!
Something mouth watering.

Dont be hatin.
If you were here you
coulda had some.

What do you think?
Will my recent domestication
reel in some visitors?
