New Years New Food

One of my new year resolutions is to start cooking new dishes. Yesterday it was a shrimp/mushroom stuffed pepper with a pommegranate cous cous salad. Here are some before and after pics...

I've tried doing stuffed peppers before and failed miserably. I discovered the trick is to BOIL the bell peppers before you put them in the oven. Likewise if you are using bamboo sticks with dishes. You soak those for a good 10 minutes to prevent them from getting burnt.

I need to work on the presentation and maybe add breadcrumbs to the shrimp/mushroom mixture, but not bad for a first try.
