Nevertheless, as long as she keeps cooking we cannot be any happier.
From time to time she decides to change her usual courses of Romanian borscht soups and Cabbage rolls with minced meat and spoil us with a more...delicate food. I call it delicate because it involves more work and attention to details, like these amazing stuffed bell peppers she just finished.
The recipe is not complicated at all, it basically consists of mixing minced meat with rice and spice and stuffing the peppers with the mixture. What takes longer is the way she does everything as she is very picky and high maintenance. When it comes to food she's got high standards and even higher expectations from herself.
Than the peppers need to be stuffed with the minced meat and that'a another milestone, as the peppers are now soft and they might break if she's not very delicate when maneuvering them.
Than she likes to "seal" the whole meat mixture in by nicely (and again, carefully) covering the peppers with a tiny, finely sliced piece of tomato, again without breaking the damn delicate roasted peppers.
And finally she cooks them on a moderate to low flame for about an hour and a half while we spend out time drooling all over the kitchen, gathered around the divinely smelling pot.
Looking forward to another one, soon. You hear that ma'?
Have a wonderful Sunday, lovely friends.
