Photo and Food Friday!

Well it's Friday once again. The weeks just keep flying by! Yesterday it was beautiful outside and while I was driving home I saw no less than 12 runners. I wanted to do something different this week for photo friday so I am including a recipe for one of my favorite foods!

Wednesday I made Stuffed Peppers for dinner and this was the first time I had made them on my own. They came out so good that I wanted to share the recipe:

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 cup water
5-6 green bell peppers
1 - 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1/4 of an onion, chopped
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place rice and water in saucepan and bring to boil. In skilled over medium heat cook beef. Remove and discard tops, seeds, and membranes of peppers. In a bowl mix cooked beef, cooked rice, tomato sauce, chopped onion, worcestershire sauce and garlic powder. (My mom and I call this mixture spanish rice!) Put mixture into peppers and then place in oven to cook for 1 hour. Enjoy!! (Sorry I forgot to take a picture of this meal - but I promise it was delish!)

On to the photo part of Friday!

A week or so ago I won a giveaway on Amanda's Blog for Gluten Free Life. I received the package this week and inside it contained some gluten free foods. I was super excited to win this giveaway because my dad is gluten free because he has celiacs disease which means he cant have gluten or wheat products. He was diagnosis about 3 years ago and I know that he struggles with it sometimes. He also had surgery Wednesday to correct a broken collar bone he had from years ago. So I brought over the gluten free bread, muffins, and cookies for him to enjoy while he is recuperating!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

I'll have to try the peppers, thanks! My husband doesn't have Celiac, but he has all the allergies to all the foods that Celiac's have--wheat, barley, all that. It's so hard. Congrats on the win. If you find anything GF that's yummy, definitely post. It's so hard to find great-tasting options.
