I was sure I bought the plant these came from in the sweet green bell pepper area of Lowes! After doing a little research I found that they are Scotchbonnett HOT peppers! And I mean really hot!
I am planning our meals for the week and even though our first week in August weather will be... well typical tropical August weather, I plan to make vegetable soup later in the week. I've found that this is a great way to use any small amounts of leftover vegetables and also a wonderful lunch box treat for those who have access to a microwave oven.
My emphasis in planning this week's meals are: 1. Using items in the pantry; 2. Rolling leftovers into future dishes; 3. making use of the potatoes that are still good, but need to be used.
Here are some ideas and the meals from the weekend.
Baked Beans. A delicious concoction of beans, browned ground beef, brown sugar, ketchup, BBQ sauce, maple syrup, mustard, chopped onions and sweet bell pepper. Leftovers from this are already in individual sized servings in the refrigerator for Monday's lunch box. I used leftover pinto beans from Friday night.
Sunday: Chicken Cacciatore, leftover potato salad, black eyed peas, corn
Monday: Hotdogs, oven fries
Tuesday: Hamburgers, brown rice, garden peas
Wednesday: Vegetable Soup (Will use leftover black eyed peas, corn and garden peas along with potatoes and other ingredients in the soup)
Thursday: Ham, cornbread and leftovers. If there are no leftovers, I still have plenty of side items in the pantry.
