Those two title topics go together, no? Splendid.
Yesterday I worked on a recipe that I was going to share on today’s post. It turned out to be neither aesthetically pleasing nor particularly tasty. In plain English, it was a flop.
I ate it anyway.
Though my lentil salad was underwhelming, I did enjoy the roasted red peppers I made while experimenting. I know you can buy them jarred, but they really are quite easy to make at home using a broiler or a gas top stove.
Not the prettiest graphic, but it gets the job done. Oh! And the secret is to really make sure ALL she skin is charred, otherwise it won’t come off. This method is easy to follow and gives you fresh roasted red peppers for sandwiches, pizza, homemade hummus or lentil salad fails.
Being that I don’t have a recipe to share, can I show you what Hailey cooked up yesterday?
She started off unsure. After all, she was in the highchair without food. What gives, mom?
But then she got into it.
Until a little paint got on her hands. Girl FREAKED out. She doesn’t like to be messy. What a girl.
After a little attention from a wet paper towel, she returned to her masterpiece.
I finally had to call it quits when she switched from painting to snack time.
Clean up was quick and the finished product was pretty cute!
Most importantly, Dad loved it.
Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
