One Local Summer 2013 – Week 16

Stuffed Peppers, One Local Summer style!  The Anselma market had these huge red peppers and I couldn’t resist.  We used ground pork, tomatoes from our own garden, and instead of rice, wheat!  The substitution worked out really well, and in fact, I think I might prefer it – the wheat is really much more flavorful than rice, even if it takes longer to cook.  Add to that a big chunk of cantaloupe and some potatoes, and it makes for a very filling dinner.  It really came out well and I’m SO glad we had leftovers.  Yeah, I know I’m behind on blogging again – this was actually prepared a few weeks ago, before vacation, but I’m just finally getting it online now.  Oops.  Better late than never?
