Spookily Friendly Peppers 
low carb and fun to eat

Just take some peppers, cut off the top ... de-seed them, and fill them with your choice of salad ...
feel free to add a little carrot, crunchy celery even a small piece of grape.
Of course don't forget to carefully cut out the 'Spooky' face!

I hope you've enjoyed this 'Tuesday Trio'. I wonder have you a favourite looking recipe out of these three? I could just enjoy some of that stew, yum! Youngest grand-daughter loves the peppers!

Interesting goulash, but, awwww, the peppers sure are the cutest!

Jo said...

It's got to be the goulash for me now that the weather's changed. We've had frosts two days on the run so it's definitely time for hearty stews.

Wonderful - I think that goulash will be perfect for Halloween and I'm keen to have a go at the pepper - what fun!
