One of the Bestest Recipes EVER


1. There are forks in the kitchen drawer again! They've left their comfy home in the dishwasher.

2. (thanks to my sister-in-law) I got my first new pair of jeans in 3 years.

3. I enjoyed the most relaxing and wonderful weekend I've had... maybe ever... and didn't allow myself to think of anything stress-inducing. As such, my already outrageous love for my husband increased 10 fold. WOW!

Check out others' small successes this week at Faith and Family Live.

I don't really like soup very much, except gumbo. But gumbo isn't soup, it's a way of life.

Anyway, soup either scalds off the roof of my mouth or else I end up declaring I shall spew it out for its lukewarmness -- there's not much in between. That's precisely why I don't like it... the point of perfect temperature-ness between molten lava and room temperature only lasts a brief second.

But there's one soup that's changed my mind forever on this subject.

Stuffed Pepper Soup (it's like stuffed peppers... as a soup! Well, duh, but it makes me excited)

olive oil
2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups green pepper, chopped
2 cans (not the 8 oz size... the bigger one) tomato sauce
1 can whole or sliced tomatoes (diced is a little too small)
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 or 2 cups water
2 cups cooked rice
1/4 cup brown sugar
salt, pepper and seasonings to taste

1. In a large-ish soup pot, sauté the ground beef, onion, and garlic in olive oil.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 40 minutes.

That's it. It couldn't be simpler, it couldn't be tastier. Goes great with a salad and french bread!
