I should not make things that I know I am bad at making…

Wraps are quite a good example. In fact, I think I did an okay job with the dough itself, and I learnt surprisingly fast how to spread and shape the wraps. The only thing I really am not good at is to fry them, eek. So, there was one single wrap that turned out rather nice-looking, which you will see below.

 

Actually, this dish did not involve tomatoes at all. It’s a first!

Taste-wise, I don’t think there was anything I could really have done wrong. I randomly chose some vegetables that we had in the fridge as well as the ground beef my parents are always buying when I make food (cough), and so it became a ground beef + red bell peppers + champignons wrap. With tabasco sauce and some other seasonings (chosen randomly as always), I have managed to produce something edible again, but didn’t look like that.

With that said, this is probably my last time cooking for this year! Wah! However, there are cakes and Christmas pastries that I am planning to make… maybe :3

It turned out good, but what the heck?

As can be seen below, for some reason I completely forgot to take a decent picture showing the insides of the stuffed bell peppers. Uh oh O.o

Oh, don’t mind the blackened parts – it was absolutely great like that.

So, without a picture, I guess the insides need a little explanation. First of all, the meat stuffing is basically the same as last time. As you might have realized, my food always looks the same: Curry (x2), pasta (x2), pizza (x1.5) and everything is in a warm color, preferably red tomato sauce. This time, the insides of the bell peppers contained:

  • Couscous
  • Dried apricots
  • Ground beef
  • A zucchini
  • A carrot
  • Tomato sauce and random seasoning: thymian, oregano and the likes

I think that’s it! Somehow I felt this was even more delicious than last time – I wonder why? One reason might be that the shape of the casserole (which, by the way, fits the color of the bell peppers perfectly) made it possible for the bell peppers to be baked rather homogeneously.

And now I have come to quite a dilemma because I am not sure what I want to make next! Hmm…
