I'm taking a break from the baking this week, well, baking sweet things :) but I have savoury treats for you. First let's start with the Greek Style Stuffed Peppers. At the beginning of June, The Left Over Queen announced the first Royal Joust. We were to make dishes that included three particular ingredients, cheese, dried fruit and nuts. I tasked The Foodie Sidekick to come up with something so that I can make it for this inaugural event and what she came up with is this Greek Style Stuffed Peppers.
Before you click here for the recipe, I want to let you know that my photograph of the stuffed peppers was accepted by the All Recipes dot com team for publication for this recipe - Yay! Go ahead and click here for the recipe. While the stuffing includes ground meat, you can most definitely substitute and make it vegetarian.
The stuffing, if you do not want to use peppers, can be put into individual ramekins, baked and be served as a side dish.
And now it's pickle time. The theme for this month's Monthly Blog Patrolling event is Preserve It. For 2 months now I've had Manisha of Indian Food Rocks pickle recipes for limes and lemons bookmarked. So when the well-brewed Coffee announced this month's theme, I knew exactly what I was going to post. But here is the thing, what you see is the pickle still in the process of pickling, it has only been bathing in the sun for about a week and according to the recipe, it takes a month to properly cure and pickle.
So I invite you to view my pickle in the process. You can click here for the recipe. If you are wondering why my lime pickle does not look the same as Manisha's or any others who have made it, it is because I switched the ingredients. The ingredients for the lemon pickle, I used to make the lime pickle instead. What can I say, I liked the colour of the lemon pickle when I first saw the post :)
