Real Good Food: “Melted Mozzarella Clumps…”

Stuffed Green Peppers topped with Mozzarella Cheese

Right after I posted this picture on Instagram, my brother, Tack, commented, “Looks like melted mozzarella clumps on top of whatever is underneath, LOL!”

Like that’s a bad thing.

I say bring on the cheese-albeit with a touch of hesitancy.

You see, milk products don’t seem to like me very much anymore.

But I’m taking my time with the break-up 😔

As for the stuffed green peppers, or “bell peppers” as we call them down South, I simply browned up some ground beef, added tomato sauce, seasonings, a smidgen of sugar then double-crammed that beefy goodness into four verdant par-boiled vegetable containers.

As you can see, I topped each pepper with a rather thin slice of mozzarella (I added a bit of grated parmesan prior to that).

So there little bro!

Clumps of mozzarella?

The nerve of that dude!

Anyway, here is a before and after:

 

Oh yeah, I had two extra slices of “mozz” so it turns out that I used 6 slices but who are you to judge me?

Whatevs!

This little “Fun with Mozzarella” endeavor started with the crab stuffed mushrooms from last week, and continued on with the peppers before concluding with the Portabella Mushroom Pizzas pictured below.

Ah…but all cheesy things must eventually come to an end so I decided to go to an old standby–Baked Chicken Florentine.

YAAASSS!

This sistah ain’t NEVER been to Florence, or any other part of Italy for that matter, but that didn’t stop me from piling spinach on top of some chicken and calling it Florentine!

LOL!

Florence, Georgia!  Wherever that is!

Much respect and love to my Italian followers 💋

Behold

 

 

What do you think about the peppers and pizza?  Too much cheese?  No pun intended! LOL!

Much love and light to you all

Real Good Food: BREAKFAST!

omelet4

It’s what’s for dinner!

Yep!

Sometimes dinner needs to be super simple.

And there’s nothing more simple than a couple of eggs, slices of bacon and some toast.

Of course, if you live in one of the Southern states like I do then grits are a must.

If you have never heard of grits, all I can tell you is they come from God’s magical corn machine.

Other than that, I got nothing.

Anyway, today, I am featuring a basic, run of the ‘meal’ omelet.

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that the one I made here  is not really that amazing but BAYBEE there are people who can turn omelets into masterpieces.

I’m serious!

I can’t tell you how many crawfish, cheese and green onion omelets I ate whilst I was in The Big Easy.

There are also some awesome makers of great omelets happening up in St. Louis too!

YAAASSSS!

Sadly, my omelet eating days are pretty much over.

I have found that egg and milk products don’t really like me very much 😦

Lady J, however, has no problem with them so the omelet pictured above was her breakfast.

Now…

Before I go, let me step back to grits.

Grits give me LIFE!

They are a fine canvas for all kinds of merriment!

My granddaddy taught me that!

You see, to him, everything was just a base for his favorite additions like sliced tomatoes and peppers.

But that had more to do with his giving nature than anything else.

Friends, this might not make much sense to you now, don’t worry, Ron or I will elaborate one day on The Flowering Vine.

Until then…

Enjoy watching this omelet mature before your very eyes!

Oh yeah, notice the fact that it looks like a frowning yellow crescent moon!

LOL!!!

I guess I would be frowning too if it were me!

 

Have a blessed day, sweets!
