Dinner tonight was leftover black beans eggplant casserole and chili rellenos.
The other day when I said that if we eat at 5:30 (which we didn’t), that I’d have to start cooking by 3. She wondered why it takes me 2-1/2 hours to cook dinner. Heck, I never thought about it but I’ve been paying attention. Just the peppers for dinner tonight involved the following:
- Roasting the peppers
- Letting the peppers sit and steam
- Skinning the peppers
- Removing the seeds
- Making the stuffing for the peppers
- Stuffing the peppers
- Breading the peppers
- Coating the peppers with egg mixture
- Frying the peppers
Yes . . dinner often takes me 2-1/2 hours! And it was so worth it!!
