A Pepper too far

Yep, food diary entry again. Sorry.
I’ve stopped buying packs of peppers as Hubby is not really a fan, and quite honestly, after a few days with the same speed food on my plate, I got a bit sick of them myself. Instead I only buy one, and last week I was sure I’d bought red so got a pack of snap peas which had been reduced to go with it .
peppersOops.  My pepper in the fridge was green, so no other colour for my plate. Dammit.
Never mind, I had some mushrooms, carrots and tomatoes, so I was sure I could put something together.
chicken-dinnerI decided to forgo the pepper anyway and this was my resulting dinner.
Hubby just had plain boiled rice with his chicken breast as he was feeling a little ‘icky’.

Today, I discovered the remains of my pepper and snap peas. They seemed OK, so as Hubby fancied a jacket potato with some cheese for his dinner today and that had to be used up too, I thought I’d join him.
snap-peasBy finely grating the cheese, it makes it look a lot more than the weight it actually is which is good from a visual point of view.
With SW, if 30g of cheese is not your A option for the day, then 25g of cheddar will cost you 5 syns. I steamed my carrot, mushrooms, pepper and snap peas (all free and speed food) in the microwave.
I confess I fished out the pepper as it didn’t taste right though the rest of the meal was fine.
Oh well, time will tell, and we all need a bit of ‘extra roughage’ sometimes!

Shopping tomorrow, and peppers will not be on the list.

I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. My husband will not eat peppers or anything that contains them. I miss them although I occasionally throw in my salad. As you say, a little goes a long way.

    • I’ll add some to my bolognese dishes or sweet and sours, and sometimes in a salad just to pack it out. Salads are off the menu for the minute as it’s too cold, so it’s all veg stews twice a week, but they are always pepperless.

  2. I have wanted to like peppers for a long time – they add so much color to things. I’ve gotten so I can eat a few small pieces, but anything more than that is just too much. I just don’t like the taste!
