Chris' Birthday Cake

Since yesterday was Chris’ birthday I asked him what cake he would like, and he actually wanted Chocolate Chunk Ganache Mousse Cake I just recently made.  I slightly tweaked a few things.  This time I whipped the extra ganache, which made a truffle consistantcy once it hardened for the borders,

and then I made his favorite dinner.  Well, I actually was in a bit of a time crunch so instead of his favorite Stuffed Peppers, I made Unstuffed Pepper Meatballs.  It was a success! :-)

Unstuffed Pepper Meatballs

Unstuffed Pepper Meatballs

Servings: 4 – Cook Time: 1 hour
1lb Lean Ground Beef
1 Cup Par-cooked White Rice
3/4-1 Teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt
4 Cups Sauce of choice
3 Large Green Peppers
In a medium glass bowl, combine the meat, rice, and garlic salt.

Put the sauce into your sauce pan.  I used my Calphalon Contemporary Stainless 3.5-qt. Sauce Pan.  Roll the meat mixture, and drop into the sauce.

Cover and let cook for about 20 minutes.  Meanwhile wash your green peppers.  Cut them into bite size chunks, add the peppers about 30-40 minutes into cooking.   We prefer them more tender than mushy.

I’m so glad Chris had an amazing birthday, and that makes me a happy wife.   :-)

    I’m just in awe that you have a husband who loves chocolate! I wish mine at least “liked” chocolate.
