It’s Meat Monday! Today’s recipe is for Italian stuffed peppers using Deutz Brothers Italian pork sausage!
Italian stuffed peppers:
5 bell peppers
1 lb Deutz Brothers Italian sausage
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
Finely chopped parsley for serving
1. Preheat oven to 350º and grease a casserole dish. Slice off tops of bell peppers, then remove the membranes and seeds and discard. Arrange empty peppers standing up in prepared casserole dish.
2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and rice, then add Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and ½ cup cheese. Stir until cheese is completely melted.
3. Spoon sausage mixture into bell peppers and top with remaining cheese. Bake until cheese is completely melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with pepper and top with parsley. Serve immediately.
Tip: I added a jar of tomato sauce to add more liquid. If you want softer peppers, cook for an hour and wait to put cheese on until 10 minutes left.
Sale!!: Italian sausage this week is only 5$ per pound!
Tendril peas are a weekly staple at Falls Fresh. They are used mainly as the body for Fresh mix and also make a wonderful (and cost-effective) garnish! $7 / 4 oz, $25/lb
A little prep goes a long way.
These precious local ingredients get purchased in the height of Summer and cured or dried, sometimes stewed and stored, so that I can use them at the peak of their flavor and ripeness all year long.
Even now as we approach the longest nights of the year the precious moments of shining sun inspire me to make the most of the offerings of each day. The brightest berries the ripest garlic the still clinging home grown herbs the purest animals from the land and the sea, the encouraging words of a good friend are each a treasured gift to be shared and spread around.
Most especially during this time of year, I celebrate the bounty of the goodness that is an inherent part of daily life, if we will only remember to take part in saying yes and please and thank you.
In these dark days of turning in remember to look around for how you’ve stored up the good stuff for now and set yourself up to let go of anything that’s no longer serving you, in order to make space for all that is showing up at your door right this second to greet you with wonder and amazement.
Stoke the fire within to cultivate a health so deep no thing can shake you from it.
As always, let me know how it goes. I’m here if you need me.

Millet is a good grain for the winter because it is considered to tonify the Kidneys. It's also good for "descending Stomach Qi", so good for all you mammas to be out there with morning sickness. Mustard greens are an excellent choice for greens this time of year because they are warming, as well it's a good time to increase eating animal products, such as the tuna here, because they are more warming, building, and nourishing - perfect for the winter season. #tcmmmmmthatsgood#shiliao#traditionalchinesemedicine#seasonaleating#localfoods#halifax#hfx#acupuncture

If you’re lucky enough to catch Avery Farms at a local festival make sure you try every single one of their dozens of free samples. Worth. It.
Fun Fact: Avery Farms is in the mountains, but you can buy Christmas Trees from their farm right here in Wilmington!
This idea was planted in me by my grandparents on their beautiful farm, the one shown in this photo. Although we do not have the farm anymore, this notion has continued to grow in my heart as I explore connection to my food, the land it was grown on, and the people who grew it.
