Valentine’s 2013


Happy Valentine’s!!  Hope everyone had a good one, I know I did.  Every year, I love to make something special for Greg and this year I asked him what he wanted for dinner and he said stuffed peppers.  We haven’t had those in a while.  Since he is not so big on chocolate I wanted to make a dessert that he would enjoy so I made mini lemon pies.  I used real lemon juice and lemon zest and even though I thought I added enough sugar to cut down on the pucker power, they were still pretty puckery!  Along with the stuffed peppers, I seasoned some mushrooms, asparagus, yellow squash and purple onion with season salt, fresh cracked pepper, garlic powder and olive oil and baked in the oven.  I am now officially as stuffed as those peppers!!
