My New Thing(s) Week 31 (and 32)

Because I'm such a slacker you get a bonus post, a 2-fer if you will!

Week 31 is/was as follows...

Let me start by saying that we were at the beach last week and I put zero effort into anything that didn’t require soaking up the sun and lounging by the pool. I was going to mention the new gum that I tried while I was there but realized it was given to me by a freind and I had no idea of the details – so I have to go with some new fudge. It was called Caramel Nut Roll (I think) and it was divine, I made 2 separate trips to the candy store in Seaside to purchase these little morsels of heaven. *sigh*

Week 32....

Since I’m still eating no meat, I’ve started exploring the world of vegetarian recipes. This week I tried Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers – While they were hearty and filling the flavor was lacking. I will definitely try this or a similar recipe again in the future, it will just need a little kick. I loved the ingredients, and the fact that they cooked in the crockpot, just needed more flavor. If you have one to share, please pass it along!

For more New Things or if you’d like to participate in 52 new things along with BirminghamMommy and many others – please join in by posting your new thing to your blog, facebook or on twitter (use #52newthings) – Also, you can head over to to link up every Thursday!

Black beans and yellow rice is one of my favorite vegetarian meals. Also, if you have a pressure cooker, you can cook the beans in it in about 40 minutes. Quick easy one.
