Appetizer: Potato Skinnys. I really don’t know why these are considered healthier for you, maybe the less-fat cheese? Maybe no frying? Well, they turned out well, but definitely not as good as Friday’s.
Entree: Jasmine Rice-Stuffed Peppers. This was a delicious stuffed pepper recipe, I didn’t really miss the cheesiness that other stuffed pepper recipes included. And Bob would like to say that it tasted just as good the next day for lunch.
Side Dish: Pear, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad. This was a light vinaigrette that I had to ask if there was any dressing on it at all. Make sure you get sweet pears, it really pairs well with the blue cheese in the salad.
Dessert: Red Wine Pear Crisp with Spiced Streusel . You can’t tell from the photo, but the dessert came out more purplish in color. We had it over ice cream which, I think, mellowed the wine flavors. It was a nice dish but like we always say with dessert crisps, DOUBLE THE CRISP.
