Stuffed Bell Peppers

It was the night of green stuff!

I had 2 bell peppers, and still have a stash of "meat gravy" in the freezer... so I decided that I should probably make use of some more of it.

I took my bell peppers, cut the tops off and emptied them.
Combined my meat gravy with 2 eggs, about a cup of cooked jasmine rice, breadcrumbs, and a bit of shredded mozzarella.
Stuffed all that glop into my peppers.
Sprinkled a bit more mozzarella on top.
Placed those bad boys in the oven at 375 for about an hour... and voila!

Served it up with some other greeness.. spinach. MMMm... greeeeen.

I've always sucked pretty bad at stuffing things... but these turned out pretty darn good! Maybe I'll get brave and attempt squash next... I love squash.

Of course to keep with the green theme we had going... we treated ourselves to a bit of the green from Paris. ;-) Something enchanting about this drink... maybe its just all the stories that surround it... because really it doesnt seem to have much effect other than what any regular beverage would (then again, we've never gone past 1 glass each... it does anebriate quickly!!)... But it is so much fun to watch, when the sugar mixes with the drink, it almost seems to glow.. an effect the French call the louche.

Do you go full tilt and melt sugar in it? No wormwood=no fun for the green fairey

We do it French style and use ice cold water dripped slowly over the ice. Also.. this does have artemisia absinthium (aka wormwood) in the ingredients list. ;-) Illegal to BUY in the US.. but not to be in possession of. -ie its not contraband.

Greg- this is still the same bottle (one and only) we originally had!

Hehe...there's always a good use for meat gravy!

I didn't know Absinthe was illegal to buy over in the US. Not that I ever drink the stuff. Not after last time. :s

Greg- You can buy "absinthe"... but like Jeff says, it doesnt have wormwood... which IS the absinthe.

Its like buying O'Doul's beer.

The stuffed peppers were excellent. It was surprising just how filling this dish was; and then to wash it all down with a little 'green fairy' well that just made the meal complete! Another job well done Lea.
