It’s been an insanely busy day today. (I’m writing this about a week before you’ll read it.) We’ve been halfway living between trailer and house since Lou Who was born: Mr Pine Nut has been working and we’ve been sleeping over at the house, while we eat and cook over here in the trailer.
The problem is, it’s starting to get pretty cold over there at night, and doesn’t warm up at all until afternoon, so Mr Pine Nut isn’t too happy working over there and I don’t think it’s good for Lou Who to sleep in such a cold environment. So, this morning we rather out of the blue decided it was Time to Move Back Into the Trailer Full-Time. This involved rethinking a lot of things, because now we have four of us to get in beds. We set up the dinette bed for Lou Who and me, and Mr Pine Nut and GooGoo will be on the twin beds he and I used to sleep in before. It’s going to be interesting. But, I’m okay with it. I know that it needs to be this way and I’m going to try to make the best of it. (Remind me of this in a couple months.)
So now, let’s discuss food.
This was a seriously easy dish to make. It’s all done in one pan and it doesn’t call for very many ingredients. And it’s amazingly tasty. GooGoo usually won’t touch food with green pepper and onion, but she had three helpings. I’m pretty sure this will become a staple around here.
This recipe was originally found on page 228 of the 1978 Betty Crocker cookbook.
2 T finely chopped onion
2 T chopped green pepper
1 T olive oil
2 c chickenlike broth
1 c uncooked bulgur wheat
1/2 tsp salt
Cook and stir onion and pepper in oil until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 15 minutes.
