red peppers stuffed with hippie rice

red peppers stuffed w hippie rice

can you believe it?
it's a week into 2013!
the world did not end,
on the contrary,
it got sweeter & brighter for us:

we got engaged!

here's to a new year,
here's to us,
and here's a simple recipe for dinner,
full of flavor & honesty.

i soaked the lentils thursday night with the intention of cooking them friday. that didn't happen. and so, accidentally on purpose i finally sprouted my lentils. for more info on how & why, go here. this lentil-rice salad can be eaten cold or warmed up, with or without dressing. either way, it's delicious.
