Stuffed Peppers

I am not sure words can describe how much I am enjoying working part time this summer!  Eventually when I have little ones, I will probably stay home for the summer.  For now…I am working on paying off a credit card, so it is very necessary to work over the summer to bring in some extra funds to get that bad boy knocked out!  Anyways, I am off by 12:30ish Monday through Thursday and have 3 day weekends and have had so much more time to get things done.  I have been impressed with my ability to keep the housework going and having time to do all the things that I love!

Tonight I made stuffed peppers for dinner.  When I went to the store, I had planned on making quinoa to mix in and managed to grab some couscous instead.  I have always wanted to try cooking couscous and tonight I did, even if it was by accident!  They turned out so good and were really easy!  I am glad I made enough for left-overs and they were very filling!
