Cauliflower Stuffed Peppers

Posted on

We know my love for stuffin’ foods and so I, of course, followed my regular routine of stuffing some type of vegetable. I’m sure I have said it before but the reason I have a strong love for it is because you get a variety of flavors in one dish. Not only that, but when you stuff vegetables you feel filled up from all the goodies that were incorporated into the dish. Know what I mean? When I say filled up, that’s a good thing because I have a nice appetite! Even Joe told me that this past weekend. He was cruising for a bruising after he said, “Wow, you sure do eat all the time, Lesley.” Gotta love husbands, right? After his not well perceived comment, I magically ended up with a new pair of Nike sneakers that will be perfect for my summer running. His comment quickly was forgiven! Now onto the cauliflower stuffed peppers…
