I had Friday off from work and I desired to make some new things. I went to the store and equipped myself with tools of the trade.
First thing I did was toast some almonds. They are good on just about anything and I can’t seem to get enough. Then I put in 5 large sweet potatoes to bake. While everything was baking, I cut up veggies for salads and started on making stuffed mini peppers.
Now, I didn’t have a recipe for this pepper idea but I knew what I wanted. I wanted pork (preferably bacon – which I couldn’t find without sugar, so ground pork was what I got) with egg, liver, and spices.
1 lbs ground pork
8 chicken livers
1 cup onion
I put all the ingredients in the food processor and mixed well. I prepped all the mini red peppers by washing and coring. Then I piped the meat mixture into the peppers and baked at 400 for 30-45 min.
The next day my dad put the pork shoulders in the smoker to do their thing for the next 24 hours.

I had sweet potato cakes for breakfast.
1 cup cooked mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup cooked ground pork (w/onion)
In a hot skillet with bacon fat I add dollops of the mixture. Cooked on each side till browned.
I had a grilled tuna stake and grilled carrots.
Then my dad did a smoked turkey... oh sooooo good!!
