Good evening! Happy Monday night.. Is it just me or are you ready for fall? I don’t know where this summer went but I do know I am ready for it to cool down. I never thought i’d be happy for fall and for boots, jeans and scarves.. I guess there’s a first for everything. I will enjoy our weather because I know most places get much, much colder than it does here so I am very thankful for that.

Last night I made a simple stuffed bell pepper with quinoa and a few other ingredients I had left over in the fridge. It’s an easy recipe but you have to wait for the quinoa to cook if it’s not already cooked and also you have to wait for the pepper to bake in the oven but it’s all worth it once you take your first bite!

  5. Scoop the quinoa mixture into the pepper and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  6. You can top it with gluten free bread crumbs before you bake it for some- Just put a piece of bread in a bag and mash it up.
