Trio of Sauteed Peppers - 1 point

It was a rather gloomy day in Middle Tennessee - filled with clouds, rain, and tornado warnings. My students were quite brave and well behaved while cowering in the hall during the warning. Still, with all of the stormy spring weather, I was feeling quite anxious for summer. Here is a recipe with lovely summer colors that will make you feel as if warmer, calmer weather is just around the corner.

Trio of Sauteed Peppers from 1000 Vegetarian Recipes
1 tsp olive oil
2 small onions, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/4 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and peppers; saute three minutes.
2. Add seasoning and continue to saute for 2 more minutes, or until peppers begin to feel tender.
3. Yields 4, 1 point servings

I finished reading the book How to Raise a Reader by Elaine K. McEwan. It thought it was good for the most part. There were several sound suggestions for working with your children from birth through middle school; including suggestions for library trips, book lists, and the idea of reading as a family following dinner.  I shared some of the information with the parents of my students. There were parts of the book with which I disagree (she seems to imply that multiculturalism is dumbing down our curriculum - if that is, in fact, her opinion, I disagree completely.) However, it is still worth reading for the wonderful tips and research information. 

Only a few more hours left until the root canal. Thank goodness for all of the delicious smoothies people have been posting lately. I am talking about you in particular, Rebecca and Swathi. They will keep me from feeling too deprived, I'm sure.

If you get a chance, please visit my friend Deborah's blog to read about a chance to win four bags of coffee, a travel mug, and a bumper sticker. Not only that, you will be helping Deborah and her family raise money to bring their little boy home from China. Yesterday was his fourth birthday; they are determined it will be his last one without them! March Madness - Now's the Time to Buy Some Coffee
