I want to preface this post by saying that I usually do my best to make foods that I know Wyatt will like. For instance, when I make chili, I leave out the onions and peppers. And when I make scrambled eggs, I add cheese. And when I make brownies, well, I make a lot of them.
But sometimes, I also throw in things like steamed vegetables in pasta or peas in a casserole. And he likes those things. They may not be things that he would make for himself, by he eats them and likes them when they’re on his plate.
No matter what, though, he still doesn’t like green peppers. Or onions. (He doesn’t even like fajitas, how crazy is that?)
But my grandma sent us a bunch of fresh vegetables. Onions, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant, and green peppers. A bunch of green peppers. Way too many for me to eat on my own.
What was I going to do with all those peppers?
So I had the idea to try and make stuffed peppers for dinner. I mean, cheese, meat, and more cheese would tend to make anyone like green peppers, right?
Anyway, it turned out great, despite the fact that Wyatt ate it all and then said, “Well, it’s good, but I still don’t really like the pepper part.”
Which is fine.
Because I did. And because he ate it, with no complaints.
And because we got rid of 4 little green peppers tonight.
Talk about dosing up on vitamin C.
