Stuffed Peppers and Baked Sweet Potatoes, of course :)

     I can't believe it's Friday already!  This week flew by for me.  I feel like I was posting about last weekend's food all week...and I still have a post stashed in my back pocket that I didn't get to.  A little treat for a day I decide not to eat for some crazy reason...not like that has ever happened, but it could...maybe, probably not.
    Well, here's a little post about the other night when we did eat.  I decided to whip up a little treat with a lot of stuff I had already in the fridge.  Red and yellow bell peppers (because they are pretty and sweet) stuffed with quinoa, onions, garlic, salt n' peppa and apple chicken sausage.  My dad used to make stuffed peppers when I was kid and I remember everyone always raving about them.  I never touched one, of course, because I was unaware that there were children starving in Ethiopia.  No, wait, I was completely aware of that, as I am pretty sure that's how my parents tried to get me to eat often.  The real truth is, I was ridiculously picky and I mean seriously averse to most foods normal people eat.  Not sure how I survived without getting scurvy.  Well, eating skittles every once in awhile probably staved that off.  Sadly, I don't think I ever purposely ate a pepper until I was 25.  Hard to believe for someone that can't stop eating these days!  But, here I am now, and since I have no idea how my dad made his stuffed peppers, this is my version.  I will have to ask him about his later and try that next time, because stuffed peppers are delicious and we will certainly be devouring them again very soon!

Food on muh plate.

Don't forget the sweet potatoes, they are superfood!!  Happy weekend everyone and happy eating :)  My mom is coming next week and I am excited to show her all the Indianapolis foodie spots I have found.  Suggestions are welcome, I always like to try a new place!
