Cajun Shrimp Stuffed Peppers

Happy Monday!

I hope you have a great start to the new week.

I am back to work today.  Not too sad about it though.  My students are great and I only have to teach in the morning…with these working hours, one cannot complain.  I am doing a fun spy themed camp with my kids.  They each create their own detective agency and secret identity and attempt to solve the mystery over the course of camp.  I am also going to throw in some pizza, pancake and piñata making; cause everything is more fun with delicious food and balloons that you get to whack at for candy 🙂

Hair Update:

I washed my hair for the first time this morning since I got it styled on Friday.

I shampooed and conditioned as per usual.  I am often lazy in the mornings and resort to tying my hair up, but today I wanted to see if my straight would stay straight.

I gave my locks a quick blow dry and low and behold they remained straight.  I still have the nice sleek straight that I walked out of the salon with, without even running an straightening iron through it; which is quite miraculous for my frizzy/wavy locks.

An overall success I would say.  Now I will just have to wait and see how long it lasts…only time will tell.

Dinner:

Taking full advantage of the little toaster oven in the apartment that I am cat sitting for, I decided to make something to put it to good use while I can.  I had a super random craving for stuffed peppers.  When a craving is knocking at the door, I say let it in!

I cooked up some brown rice and barley, as well as some veggies (corn, peas, peppers, sweet potatoes), beans and shrimp; and gave it a good kick with some Cajun seasoning.

I overflowed my peppers with layers of rice and the veggie mix; topping it all off with a sprinkling of cheese.  The result was divine.  Served with a little side salad, it was the perfect meal.  Thank you little toaster oven!

Go make yourself a stuffed pepper! or wait for dinner cause it would be a little weird to eat one for breakfast…unless it was stuffed with scrambled eggs! I think I just had a revelation!

Have a good one.

p.s.

A couple of you were wondering what was inside of this breakfast bowl of goodness…

It’s just microwaved cinnamon apples on the bottom topped with Kashi Go-Lean, raisins, almonds and milk.  It’s my new favorite.  I love the warm apples at the bottom.
