Sunday Funday


Thank you so much to everyone that participated in FLOW on Friday :D. I love you all!

I hope you have all had a great weekend :D. Friday night my friends and I had a girl’s night. We went and saw The Vow, which was slightly disappointing. I think I would have liked it better if more had been done with the ending…I dunno, it just sort of ends and leaves you hanging.

But, Channing Tatum was pretty awesome to watch on the big screen for almost 2 hours ;). Speaking of Mr. Tatum…I found this video clip of him that you should all watch! It’s his opening monologue on SNL last weekend and he does some stripping action hehe. Click the picture to go to the page where the video is!


So the other night I made a really delicious meal. And it was extremely easy which is a huge plus in my book! For some reason I got the idea to make stuffed peppers, but done more Mexican style. These peppers are awesome!

Mexican Style Stuffed Peppers

Makes 6-8 servings


3 large bell peppers (I used red), cut in half with stems, seeds, and membranes removed

1 lb of lean ground beef, cooked and drained

1 packet of taco seasoning

Water (amount according to directions on taco seasoning packet)

1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 15oz can of chunky salsa

Mexican cheese (I used the 2% Milk blend)

Olive oil cooking spray


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut bell peppers in half and remove the stems, seeds, and membranes.

3. Brown the meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain when finished.

4. Add water and taco seasoning to meat. Cook according to seasoning packet.

5. Add black beans and salsa to the seasoned meat. Let it simmer for a few minutes to warm up.

6. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and coat with olive oil cooking spray.

7. Line up peppers on baking sheet. Spoon meat, bean, and salsa mixture into the pepper halves. Depending on how much you want the peppers filled, you could use 6-8 halves.

9. Sprinkle the peppers with the Mexican cheese.

10. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is is starting to turn golden on top.

11. Enjoy!

These were really tasty and very filling. They also sort of had a chili taste to them! I’m so glad that I have plenty of leftovers :).


And I thought I’d leave you with some handsome men pictures that I’ve found on Pinterest!

  1. Those peppers look great! I have to admit, I have no idea who Channing Tatum is. Sad, but true 😉

  2. Well my Sunday is off to a fantastic start, thanks for the eye candy! 😉 I saw the vow with some girlfriends on friday night too; I thought it was cute but definitely could have been better in some ways. I still left with a warm heart though! Love it when movies can do that for ya 🙂

  3. I totally agree with you about the Vow! Umm I need to click that picture right now. haha Did you know he was a stripper before he was famous?!? Those peppers look absolutely amazing!!!!

    • Haha yes I did know that! Did you know that they’re making a movie about it? It’s called Magic Mike and it’s based on him!! He’s in it, so is Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Alex Pettyfer. um…talk about yummy haha 😉

  4. I really like that idea about the stuffed peppers … I may have to try that one soon!

  5. Channing is to die for!

    and those peppers look good to!

    goin to pin them 🙂

  6. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance

    Oof! I’m about to head off to my conference for day 3, but I’m glad I stopped by to see these handsome faces first 😉

    Thanks again for guest-posting! Love ya girl, have a great Sunday!

  7. aww i actually loved the vow! i thought it was one of the better “chick flick” moves i’ve seen in quite awhile.

    your stuffed peppers look amazing! courtney (from sweet tooth sweet life) made them recently too, and they’re calling my name! i think i need to make them this week! 🙂

  8. Those peppers look awesome! I have been wanting to make stuffed peppers, I feel like I have been seeing them all over and they make me hungry! lol This weekend has consisted mostly of playing catch up with life: laundry, cleaning, sleeping, etc. Sometimes you just need those days when you stay home and take care of chores you’ve been putting off!

  9. I agree…I liked the movie, but I wanted more at the end. Channing Tatum made everything worth it though…he’s such a cutie. I liked how he really showed his emotions when he was upset…somehow, that’s attractive :).

  10. JOSH HUTCHERSON. yum. I totally agree with you on the vow..I guess I had my hopes up too high! But looking at Channing Tatum was enough. Have a great rest of the day 🙂

  11. Even if it wasn’t really that great, I still want to see The Vow! I’m a sucker for any kind of romantic movie.

    Also, who is the guy in the first picture?! Yum! 😉

  12. I’m pinning those peppers! Great dinner idea 😀

  13. I just pinned your recipe! I LOVE stuffed peppers, and I think your Mexican version would be even more amazing!

  14. This looks so good! I’m always on the lookout for stuffed pepper recipes, and the Mexican flavors you added seem like a wonderful addition.

  15. haha thanks for making me drool twice: once with the stuffed peppers and another with the hot men! omg !! 🙂 ha

  16. I want so see The Vow sooooo bad!! I am a SUCKER for romantic movies. Like I totally love ’em!

    Have a good day!

  17. HAHA! Who doesn’t want some handsome men pics in their life, right 😉 Thanks girl 😉 I have been manless for quite some time now and am lovin these pics HAHAHAHAHA ❤

    Anywho, it's kind of ironic how you posted this stuffed pepper recipe (they look amazing by the way and I WILL be making this version) because I have recently just made stuffed peppers for the first time and keep forgetting to share the recipe! I always WANT to share the recipe, but then I get so excited about something else that I never post the recipe! HAHA

  18. oh em gee that first guy is dreeeaamy 🙂

  19. We love stuffed peppers in our house! I have never made a Mexican version and I can’t wait to try these!!

  20. Found you through Brittany’s blog…I’m your newest follower! I, too, watched The Vow this weekend and thought the ending was stupid. But 2 hours of Channing Tatum was worth every penny I paid to get in. 🙂 Going to try these bell peppers–they look great!
