Reaping what I sowed!

So I wrote a while back about the garden I decided to try this year. Well it has been very successful in my book and began to look like a scene from Little Shop of Horrors very quickly!

I have had many cucumbers, a few tomatoes and bellpeppers. The one I am the most excited about are the bellpeppers because I do not like green bellpeppers I only like yellow, orange or red and it takes a very long time for them to ripen from green. Patience is a huge product of bellpepper growing and I am not the greatest at patience so I am excited I have gotten some!

Here is a gorgeous picture of the three I picked the other day! I got to use one of the orange and the yellow one tonight to make a sweet and sour chicken dish that Sexy Husband and I really enjoy! It was so super awesome to be cooking with a bellpepper that I grew! It was an awesome feeling of accomplishment!

I ended up giving one to the neighbor across the street because the recipe I used tonight did not need both orange and I did not want it to go to waste.

Here is a pictured of the finished sweet and sour dish.

Until Next Time...

I would love that recipe for the sweet and sour chicken. I didn't realize red and yellow bellpeppers weren't a different variety than green. That's what I get for not being a foodie. :-)
