Recipe For Stuffed Peppers

Shelbi and I made theses peppers for the lunch after church on Sunday. Despite my many doubts, they actually turned out well ;) I would encourage you to try them!

Dad's Stuffed Bell Peppers


4 bell peppers, any color
5 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 1/2 cup of cooked rice
1 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned (if using can, drain of excess liquid first)
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
Fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce


1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut top off peppers 1 inch from the stem end, and remove seeds. Add several generous pinches of salt to boiling water, then add peppers and boil, using a spoon to keep peppers completely submerged, until brilliant green (or red if red peppers) and their flesh slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Drain, set aside to cool.

2 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook a minute more. Remove skillet from heat, add meat, rice, tomatoes, and oregano, and season generously with salt and pepper. Mix well. (You may find it easier to put the ingredients at this point into a large bowl and mix together with your hands.)

3 Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil inside the peppers. Arrange the cut side of the peppers up in a baking dish, then stuff peppers with filling. Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl, then spoon over filling. Add 1/4 cup of water to the baking dish. Place in oven and bake for 40-50 minutes (or longer, depending on how big the peppers are that you are stuffing), until the internal temperature of the stuffed peppers is 150-160°F.

Yield: Serves 4-6.

Here is the finished product!

Hi everybody! Our internet has been out, so that's why things around here haven't been updated in a while :) I probably wouldn't have had time to blog anyways because I've been working fast and furious to get the remaining part of my schoolwork done in the next two weeks. (It's a goal I've set for myself.) I think I'll make it!

My Mom is doing a great giveaway at her blog. Go to it here and check it out!

Stay on the lookout for another post about my latest baby goats!

Everyone have a wonderful evening,

Our Camping Trip Slideshow

Last weekend our family and some of our camping buddies went on our first camping trip of the year! We had a blast, and as is our "tradition" we had a theme night. This time it was a cowboy night, so we all brought our boots and hats and lived up to the Texas name; eating roast and potatoes out of tin cans :) Our family made a slideshow with all of the pictures that we got-- hope you enjoy it!

( Don't forget to turn off the music on the sidebar )

Shiloh And His New Diapers

Recently mama bought Shiloh some cloth diapers. Thought y'all might like to see some pictures of not only the diapers, but of him :) He was eight months old two days ago. Oh, and the diapers are Fuzzi Bunz ;)

Shiloh has definitely got crawling down, and he is starting to try to pull up. He will wave bye-bye, (when he wants to) and is very particular about people he doesn't know holding him :)

Does this diaper make my butt look big?

Hanging on the line... :)

More About Welsh Ponies

Hey y'all! We got the horses from our grandparents' house yesterday. So far we are really enjoying them, but I have a story to tell :)

We drove out to grandma and papa's house yesterday afternoon, and walked out to look at the horses. They trotted up to the fence and we went in to pet them. Papa said they were gentle enough for us to ride them, so if it was alright with mama and daddy we could try. The horses hadn't been ridden in a year, but as they had been trained and worked with so much we decided we would. Daddy put a lead rope on the little one, ( the little one is full welsh pony, but the bigger one is only half ) and Seth (10) was soon riding in a circle around him. She seemed to like it, but the bigger one was prancing around snorting, not liking what was going on. I rode the little one next. It was hard to stay on as I was riding bareback, but I grabbed handfuls of mane and hung on for dear life when she started galloping in circles around daddy. Having very little experience with horses, I was quite proud of myself when I slid off :) Next we decided to try the big one. She still wasn't too sure about us. Daddy asked me if I wanted to go first. I wanted to, so he held her head while Shelbi, (15) knelt down so I could stand on her knee to get on. As I swung my leg over, I realized that she was ALOT taller than the little one. She snorted and shifted her weight uneasily. I was uneasy too. As I said before, I, or our whole family for that matter, hasn't had much experience with horses. Shelbi backed away and daddy started walking. What happened next is all a blur. I remember her running towards the fence, and I of course, now thoroughly convinced that she DID NOT want me on her, thought she was going to throw me in the barb wire. Daddy got her turned the other direction, so then she started twisting, and turning sharp circles. I don't think she actually bucked, but she definitely wanted me off. I don't remember what happened next, but I do remember falling off. I fell on my side, and have a knot to prove it. Then a bad pain hit me in my upper leg. I passed out. I woke up to someone asking if I was okay. It was daddy, and I apparently hadn't been out for very long, because he was still trying to calm the horse down. I tried to get up, but my leg hurt so bad I just sat there. I managed to get up after a while, daddy said she had stepped on me. Everybody outside the fence was still asking if I was okay, and I squeaked my yes. I think I scared all of them when I didn't get up right away. I'm fine now-- just sore and a new collection of bruises. I 'm thankful that the Lord protected me-- it could have been alot worse. The story has been retold numerous times by my younger brothers and sisters, they now are scared of the bigger horse. ( As I keep calling them 'The Big One" and "The Little One" , your assumption has been right. We still aren't settled on names :) ) Seth in particular has even acted it out for me and told me it was like watching something from a rodeo.

Here are some pictures of the horses in their new abode. They particularly like rolling around in the pond :)

My bitter enemy-- "The Big One" . I am more determined to ride her now-- but with a saddle :) Look at her face!

Welsh Ponies

Hey everybody!! Sorry I haven't been blogging, but I have a good excuse--I've been sick...twice. I had the flu for two weeks; It was my first time to ever get it and it wasn't a very pleasant experience. After that I was well for a week, and then our whole family came down with a horrible stomach virus except for mama and the baby. Oh, and Sarah Grace. How she managed to escape it I'll never know. We haven't been really sick for a year or two, so I guess our time was up. In between our two bombs of illness we went and got welsh ponies! A good friend of ours has a brother who breeds them. He had two that had been sent to "Obedience School" and failed. :( So he very generously GAVE them to us! We are so excited. We haven't built a place for them on our land yet, so we left them at our grandparents' house intending to build a shelter and fence for them, and then move them to our house. But, alas, we all started losing our lunch and therefore haven't moved them yet. :( I've got pictures! ( of the horses, not us losing our lunch.)

We still aren't settled about names for them, but I'll let you know when we are!We are looking forward to getting them here. Have a great weekend!

Yesterday it snowed for the first time this year! We got about four or five inches, so we were really excited! There wasn't enough to build a snowman, but we still had fun playing outside :)

Seth and Sarah Grace.

Spurgeon getting rambunctious.

We took these cute little penguins to a New Years Eve party. They are so fun to make, and not very hard to do if you do it right the first time :)

All you need are large and small olives, carrots, cream cheese, and toothpicks.

You take a large olive and fill it with cream cheese. I uses my fingers.

Then you cut a slice of carrot and cut a triangle out of it. Next you take a small olive, cut a slit in it and stuff the triangle of carrot into it. Lining it all up the way you want it, you stick a toothpick through it all. You use the carrot with a triangle out of it for feet.

Then your done! Not only are they cute, but they taste good as well. (That is if you like olives) :) Mama made an igloo out of a big cream cheese ball and we put them around it. I hope you try it!
