Well it was bound to happen some day! A recipe I made which I tasted and thought tasted great and my son has a straight rejection; I mean he doesn't even give it a go. He is a bit off his food today, even rejecting pudding so I'm not going to be too hard on myself.
So in some ways perhaps I shouldn't be posting this but I am certain there is a good idea in here somewhere and, if I post it, I will think about it more, perhaps take suggestions from you good people and come up with an idea my son is a tad more accepting of.
Stuffed Peppers - makes 6 mini stuffed peppers
3 mini peppers (or you could use normal size peppers / capsicums)
1 slice, around 25g / 1oz bread made into crumbs
1 tsp of fresh mixed herbs, I used parsley, oregano and thyme
60g, 2oz vintage or extra mature (sharp) cheddar
50g, just short of 2oz courgette (zucchini), grated
1 tsp mild, sweet paprika
1 tsp Olive oil
Put the oven on to 170-180oC (350F).
Chop the herbs and grate the cheese. Mix the herbs, cheese, paprika, breadcrumbs, courgette and egg.
Cut the peppers in half and fill with the mixture. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked and golden.
I'm thinking some inclusion of fish, maybe smoked fish or crab might be good. I'll have a think. There's a meal in here somewhere and irrespective of my son's response, it was pretty good as it is.
So people close to me will know there's a lot going on right now. Things are difficult but it's so cool to have something in my life, this blog and my friends and family which give me so much joy. Whenever you face adversity in life it can be difficult to see a good side to it but a good side, if there is one even in really dark times, is that I've had so much support from my friends and family. It's a huge deal and it means so much. So thank you kind readers, friends and family.
