Hey friends, it's mid-February, can you believe it?  

I see the light of Spring on the horizon.  Under all that melting snow, I really do believe I see it.  I felt it so strong earlier today that I bought my first pair of shorts while running errands {running shorts, but hey, shorts!}.  I kept trying to put a cute tank top in my cart as well....but alas, still winter.  Let's not get crazy Ally.

This morning was one of those mornings that I get ALL TO MYSELF.  Cue, the jealous music.  For 5 hours per week I'm able to go where I want, do what I want and actually eat a meal in peace.  Saying all of this, I've worked very hard to not feel guilty about it.  I've had too many people ask,"what do you do with all your time while your youngest is at preschool?"

In my head I want to scream, "I don't know, during the hours of 8:30-11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursday, what are you doing?"

I mean, let's face it, not much can get done/finished/started in those short hours, but I just smile and say, "hmm...let's see, laundry, pay bills, grocery shop, prep dinner, pick up my trashed house, etc.".  I certainly must be the only woman on the face of this earth that stays home, right?

Here's what I'm getting at - this recipe post is PROOF that I actually do something during those 5 hours a week {because those that ask usually don't know I operate a food blog}.  One day a couple weeks back I made soup.  I MADE SOUP!

A delicous soup if I can brag a bit.

Here's the juice on this recipe.

I "kinda" like stuffed peppers in the summer.  You know, the ones you eat come July and August here in the Midwest when peppers are on overload in your garden.  I love the filling, but I'm not the biggest fan of peppers.  I can take them in small quantities, but when forced to choke down a full one {especially green ones, which I think kinda taste like dirt}, I'm not too excited.

So I chopped and chopped and chopped those darn things down to small mini-bite pieces and turned that summer meal in a comforting, winter soup.

Everything comes together perfectly.  It's sweet, yet peppery and completely filling.  I love how the rice and ground beef make it hearty and served with a hunk of good bread {or grilled cheese, because KIDS}, it is a full meal.
