Here's how I make mine...
Cut the bottoms off of 4 large or 6 medium green peppers so that they sit level in your baking pan. Cut out the stem and top portion of the pepper and clean out the seeds. Rinse well with water and set aside to dry.
Make a pan of instant rice. To make mine, I brought 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil, added 1 1/2 cups of instant rice and some salt, placed a lid on the pan and removed it from the heat to sit 5 minutes or so. I added 1 1/2 Tbsps butter when the rice had soaked up all the water, stirred and set it aside.
Put a large skillet on the stove to heat up. Add some olive oil. Dice an onion and add it to the hot pan. Place 1 lb of hamburger meat into the pan and add the spices you like; stir well. (I used dried oregano, garlic powder salt, and black pepper. When the hamburger meat has browned, removed from heat and add the cooked rice and stir to combine...
Add about 1/2 a can or jar of spaghetti sauce to your beef and rice mixture; stir. Reserve the rest for later.
Fill your peppers with the beef and rice mixture and place then into a baking dish you have sprayed with cooking spray...
Add some of the reserved spaghetti sauce to the top of each pepper and pour the rest around them in the bottom of the pan. Cover with two layers of foil, and bake for 45 at 350 degrees F or until peppers are sufficiently soft.
Sorry no pics of the finished dish. It's in the oven right now baking for dinner! (And sorry if my pictures are blurry. I have no idea why they all came out that way today. Or maybe it's just my eyes. I've been squinting at thread and a small crochet hook the past couple of hours.
Look what I found at the antique store...
It's a pillow cover made with a very sturdy linen-type of material and then embroidered. I thought it was so pretty, and I have a pillow form to fit it already in my stash of crafty stuff.
It was in a bin for 25% off of $5.95. Of course I'll iron it, and then I'm going to add a crocheted border of some kind. It's on my to-do list. Who knows when the mood will strike me to do it, but I wanted to share it with you today.
Have a great evening!
