There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Baked Chiles Rellenos with Smoky Tomato Sauce
I found this recipe in Vegetarian Times Magazine. It was really tasty, but I think it would be better as a side dish. It doesn't have any protein or many carbs in it -- maybe you could add some rice or something to the filling to make it more substantial. It was quite a bit of work for a side dish.
Also, I don't really think it's necessary to roast the poblanos before you stuff and bake them. They got really mushy and ripped quite a bit when I removed the seeds. I ended up brushing the egg onto the peppers after they were stuffed and then sprinkling the panko crumbs on top.
The sauce was very spicy, but I used a very big chipotle pepper, so cut down on that if you don't like it so spicy.
