Stuffed Pepper Soup


When I was a little girl growing up, my mom would make stuffed peppers.  We all absolutely loved them. I am going to tell you what me, my sister and brother would do.  Mom didn’t like this at all.  As a matter of fact, she threatened us with never making it again.  Well, we would eat the stuffing but we didn’t like eating that pepper.  Mom said that she would make the stuffing for us without the pepper.  But no, we wanted it in the pepper so we could scoop it out.

But, payback is a you know what.  My kids used to do the same thing to me. They loved the stuffing, but didn’t want to eat the pepper.  With that said, how about a stuffed red pepper soup instead.

  1. This sounds delicious–and I think it’s adorable that your kids did to you what you did to your mom! I once refused to take my antibiotics and was sick for an extra week–hope my kids never pull that one on me!

    Thanks for sharing a tasty-looking seasonal recipe!

    • Thanks Kristen. Its funny how life evolves that way. I sure hope your kids don’t refuse the antibiotics. If they ever do, you will have to conceal it like we do with our puppy.
