God Bless America

11 years ago, I was in 6th grade and in my last year at Brent Elementary School. The day passed like any other day. It wasn't until Daddy came home early from work that I knew something was wrong. Something in his eyes gave him away. Immediately he turned on the tv, and what I saw next changed my life forever. What I saw was rubble. Rubble from two towers that that morning stood proudly. Rubble that became a grave to many mommies, daddies, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, best friends, etc. The following days were filled with news updates, replays of the attack, and interviews with witnesses. It seemed like a permanent wound was opened to our American hearts. BUT the dream is still alive. God has prevailed, and His glory is still shining. He placed a dream and a will in so many men and women's lives that are today still fighting for the freedom that our forefathers fought for. I am very proud to be a member of this nation, and today my heart goes out to the men and women and their families who lost loved ones that day, during our war, and those who are still waiting for their loved ones to come home.

Please pray for them every day. We may recognize them today, but every day they are still risking their lives for each of us and our loved ones who are here and safe.

Stuffed Pepper Casserole

1 lb ground turkey
1 24 oz marinara. We used Newman's Own Sockarooni sauce
2 cups brown rice
2 cups Mozzarella cheese
3 cloves minced garlic
salt to taste
1 tsp onion powder
2  green peppers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown ground turkey and drain. Chop the peppers, and add peppers, onion powder, and salt to the turkey. Cook on low until peppers are soft. In another pan, add 2 cups brown rice to boiling water. Once the rice is soft, drain the remaining water. 

Spray a large casserole dish with non stick spray. In the casserole dish, mix the rice, spaghetti sauce, and 3/4 cup cheese together.

Once you're peppers are soft, add the meat/pepper mixture to the casserole dish.

 Combine. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is golden.

I hope you all enjoy this new recipe from the Rigoni kitchen. God bless you and yours!!
