veggie table

when i read Thimbleanna's comment on firecrackers...

And THAT is why I don't like jalapenos. You never know if you're going to get hot or mild. I prefer to keep my tastebuds in working order. (But those look good with the cream cheese and bacon anyway. I suppose it would be cream cheese overkill to use a green pepper, huh?)

i decided that she has to be the Most Brilliant Person in the World - cream cheese, bacon, and peppers without the heat...
but...
you had to know that was coming
green peppers are BIG... 
it would take an entire package of silver-wrapped bliss 
aka Philadelphia cream cheese 
to stuff just one...
what to do?!?
what to do?!?
what to ... wait!!! 
i remembered seeing tiny bell peppers at the grocery store and wanting to buy them just because they were so doggone cute...
 Auntia told me to wait - she had planted a mini bell pepper plant and we would have tiny peppers in a couple of months... 
mutter mutter mutter
so...
 the next time she sent me on an emergency run to King Soopers to get yet another bag of White Cheddar Cheetos which i swear she goes through faster than green grass through a goose 
i made a detour to the produce aisle and bought a package...
aren't they pretty?!?


neat ... sweet ... petite
shiny!!!
and used my jalapeƱo corer to clean out the seed pods... 
stuffed them with cream cheese... 
wrapped them with bacon...
 and baked them...
oooo!!! Anna - you would LURVE these!!!

Oh. My. Good. Golly. Gee.

they were really, really, really tasty!!!

who knew that vegetables could taste so doggone good?!?

they were so tasty 
that we decided to make our entire meal vegetarian...
katana corn skewers ... there can be only one

except for the bacon...


Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

Holy Cow -- I AM a genius ROFLOL!!! I've seen those teeny little green peppers but never even made the connection. Now THAT is a stuffed pepper I could eat. Clearly, it takes us together to be smart hahaha!!!! Thanks for following up!

I don't like bell peppers so would probably do the other but bacon is great with everything!!
