I made some good dishes using the vegetables from our trips to the Amish. Below is a quick version of Cowboy Caviar or Fresh Salsa. I love to chop vegetables, but this time I used the little chopper from QVC that looks like I am starting a lawn mower. Not quite a perfection pretty but so fast! The second time I made this I added pasta and Parmesan... There is a reason we don't have a picture of that salad!
Another new idea was to use couscous and a thick chili (no beans) in stuffed peppers. It was sooo good. The chili recipe is the one I have used several times from The Pioneer Woman, Perfect Chili. Always par-boil peppers to eliminate bitterness.
I have been relocating some little girls and even tried listing a few on E-bay and Swap shop. These little jewels amazingly still are selling from the company for about $50-60. However, they run about $5 on E-bay, along with any other so-called collectible from the past... Nope. Not selling mine for the cost of a Mocha at McDonald's.
I had company a few weekends ago, and I made this blanched zucchini, cheddar, and roasted onion quiche. I babied it quite a bit with blind baking (with dry beans) in the crust, etc. Years ago my mother got a recipe for the basic quiche from a dear doll club member. It is rather no-fail: 4 eggs, 1/2 c. cream. 1 1/2 c.milk.... As long as everything else is rather dry, you just add a favorite cheese and anything you please! Salt and pepper to taste.
I think she has a good idea. It is time to settle down and watch some tv... Have a good weekend.
