...on being lazy with Minty Green Tea + Recipe

Jul 14, 2012
...I dedicated this weekend to laziness, sheer laziness, and for once I am not worrying about laundry, workout, and everything else that once mattered to me...

It involved How I Met Your Mother marathon in PJs, no makeup & staying-in 

followed by refreshing concoction of my favorite ingredients in a glass:  Chilled fresh brewed green tea + honey & fresh mint.. its only three ingredients but pure, simple & completely rejuvenating 


after one laid back Friday night & Saturday afternoon, i was ready for a break..break into my happy space! 

Kitchen is my happy space, outlet for my creativity..no rules..no judgements 

...I stuffed red bell peppers with couscous and sauteed vegetables, topped with grated parmesan to create something one flavorful & satisfying dish..

Ingredients
1 red bell pepper, seeded and halved
1/4 cup cooked couscous
sauteed veggies of your choice ( i used grated carrots, diced mushroom, chopped onions, garlic & black beans) 
salt
paprika
dried parsley
grated parmesan, for toppings

Directions
-Preheat oven to 350F
- Place the bell pepper in the oven for 15-20 minutes until slightly roasted
-In the meantime, saute the veggies with paprika & parsley
-In a small sauce pan, cook couscous and set it aside
-Stuff the pepper with couscous, layer veggies & top it off with cheese and bake for additional 15-20 minutes until the cheese melts


Lesson of the day: 
      it is totally okay to slack off 
      learn to relax (often)
      break-free &
      enjoy...
