Battered and deep fried Flounder Fillets served on a nice roll with dill pickles, mayo, tomatoes, avocado, and Tapatio hot sauce. At least a 9!

I decided to take some leftover brisket and make chili with it then mix it with rice and stuff a couple of bell peppers that were about to go to waste. I baked the peppers in a pan of water and let them cool first, while they were cooling I put the meat in a non stick pan and got some browning on them before pouring a cup of expresso in the pan to cook the meat till it was very tender. Added the usual chili ingredients (always include several chipotles in adobo) and let simmer while the rice was cooking then mixed in the rice and stuffed the peppers and topped each pepper with pepper jack cheese. Since it was time for breakfast and not a thing in the kitchen for breakfast, I decided to take some of that chili and rice and add an egg on top and call that breakfast and it worked just fine for me.
This was what I was asked to cook for the hen party, I mean baby shower the other day. They must like it a lot cuz I think this is the third time I've done these for them. I take some home made dried apples and spice em with some cinnamon, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar and lemmon juice first and use Pepper Jack for the cheese and then wrap with bacon. Smoked them at 325 for about an hour till they hit 155. Easy peasy.

Sue's niece Samantha (Sam) is having a baby shower tomorrow so Sue's sister Joanne visited from Alabama and spent the night. I thought these boneless skinless breast would be good and it would be something she had not tried before. I had some good cheese on hand and fresh spinach and smoked ham and that was what went inside then I wrapped in bacon and used tooth pics to hold together. I grilled them with pecan wood in the Traeger at 350 to 375 for about 45 min to one hour turning occasionally. Served it with baked potato, yeast rolls and a nice salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
