I had planned to cook dinner tonight.  Really.  I even baked a loaf of bread.  But Victor beat me to the kitchen when it came time to stuff the peppers.

I was so heartbroken.  NOT!!!

Red peppers stuffed with ground pork mixed with carrots, celery, garlic, scallions, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, an egg… topped with a bit of tomato sauce and some panko bread crumbs.  Baked in the oven.

Perfection.  My stomach is definitely smiling!

And then we have all these other meals we’ve had the past couple of weeks that I haven’t posted.   I make the time to take the pictures but somehow end up doing other things instead of writing posts about them.

So here we go…

I made those little rolls so I had to make little sandwiches.  BBQ pork with faux tater tots.  It was yum.

And then we had Stuffed Baked Potatoes.

These puppies were good!  Chicken, bell pepper, andouille sausage, diced tomatoes and cheddar cheese stuffed into a baked potato.  Okay, it was stuffed into and atop a baked potato half.  With sour cream.  Garnish is everything, ya know… Ooey gooey cheesy goodness.

And then there was a stuffed pork loin…

Spinach, carrots, onion, celery, bread crumbs… roasted in the oven with roasted potatoes and roasted cauliflower.  It could have been a one-pot meal but why dirty one pot when you can dirty three?!?  That’s my motto.

And back last week when we had decent weather, we had beanie weenies and potato salad.

Phoebe’s Baked Beans and Mom’s Potato Salad.

The perfect Summer Meal – in Mid-March.

And them Victor stuffed Chicken Breasts…

The chicken was stuffed with prosciutto and gorgonzola cheese.  It was Italian Chicken Cordon Bleu. Brushed with the Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette he made a couple of nights ago with the pork tenderloin.  Along with cheesy polenta.

Can you say *wow* boys and girls?!?

And, of course, we’ve had our desserts…

I made a Banana Clafoutis the other night that was outrageously good.

A Clafoutis is a bit like a baked custard – but not quite.  An authentic clafoutis is made with cherries.  So much for tradition.

I made a similar clafoutis last year that I had actually forgotten about until just now.  This one was banana, coconut, and rum.

So I think I’m almost caught up with the past meals…

I’ll try and be a bit more timely.

No guarantees, though…
