Yes, the first time ever.
It all started with a conversation recently with Brad about our crazy collection of cookbooks. Both of us love kitch, and own at least a couple of vintage 1960 era cookbooks. If you own vintage 1960 era cookbooks (or even cooked in the 1960s) then maybe you've asked the same question I asked Brad, "What's the deal with all the pimentos?"
Really, what was the deal? Since the '60s are a little before my time I can only surmise that they must have been "the thing" at the time.
While thumbing through the pimento laden cook book I stumbled across a recipe for "Old-Time Stuffed Peppers". Bran likes stuffed green peppers so I thought to myself, "Why not? I'll give stuffed peppers a try."
I ended up cobbling together my own recipe from the one in the book with recipes I found on-line. Following the 1968 recipe exactly was out of the question as the original recipe asked for an alarming amount of salt and MSG.
|Pimentos and MSG - yum!|
Good thing Bran likes stuffed peppers because I'll be experimenting with them again tonight!
