Banana Pepper Poppers {Recipe Revealed!!}

This was our pan full of peppers before baking. I don’t know how many servings this might be in a regular household but this was about four and since we ate it as a main course we cleaned it up.

• Couple dozen sweet banana peppers
• Block of cheese (at least half pound)
• Package of bacon
• knife, cutting board, and baking sheet

• Slice open peppers long ways and scrap/cut out seeds
• Slice cheese and put into pepper pockets. Arrange cheese evenly if possible
• Wrap bacon around each pepper. We cut one bacon strip in half for the small peppers.
Bake in oven 350° for 30 minutes or until peppers are tender, bacon is cooked and cheese is melted.
The final product looked like this.
You can see that I barely remembered to take a picture of them.

My specifics:
I used turkey bacon because that is what I usually keep in my fridge.

I also used some of Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese. I used the onion and chive cheese, which crumbled and mashed nicely into the peppers.
I also just found out that Kenny uses vegtanle based rennet to make his cheese! So all y’all veggie people are good to go.

The sweet banana peppers I got from dad’s garden and boy oh boy are they delicious!

I am not paid nuttin’ to mention product names. I love their cheese and I felt decadent using something other than Walmart cheese. Heh.

Day 304: Theatre


This past weekend I went to two live theatres in two different cities.

The first play I went to see was Moon Over Buffalo. Two of my friends were in it and I had my best friend (the hubster) by my side.
If Moon comes to your city then make the time. It was hysterical. The actors were fantastic! And my hubby was a good theater-mate.

The second play I got to see was Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. I hadn’t seen any version more read any version of Cat. I must have many friends in theater because a strikingly beautiful friend played Maggie the Cat. It was a complex role that she did very well.

I think I filled my cultural enrichment quota for the week. Perhaps I’ll go for a turn about the park.

Mar 3, ’13 Update: This same week, a theatre from my childhood closed. I grew up volunteering and working for that theatre and the fantastic people involved. Keep local live theatre alive. Buy a ticket and applaud.
