Texture Tuesday: Happy Peppers

So, I love fresh raw peppers. I love them by themselves, with cream cream, sliced on a salad, etc. I recently stumbled on this totally yummy alternate way to prepare them and I had to share.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Wash and dry your sweet peppers, then cut off the stems and deseed them.

Place them in a bowl and pour on a little olive oil and toss to coat lightly.
Spread them in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Put them in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until roasted to you liking.

The carmelized bits get crunchy and are almost the texture of french fries.

They are great as a side dish, on a salad, in an omlette or as a snack.

Sentimental Stuff

After moving, you have to find the right place for the sentimental stuff.

This is a really sweet memorial an art director friend wrote and illustrated for me after my sweet hedgie went to the great hedge in the sky. Hedgies like warm dark places - so I hung it in the laundry room!
