What's cookin' good lookin'?

Been trying to be more adventurous in our dinner meals lately...I guess we both got to the point where our standard go-to weekday dinner meals got kind of boring...they're still tasty, but we just wanted a little change of pace.

Last night, I made spicy tuna's not really a taco when you think about it since it's in a baked gyoza shell. Made some homemade spicy tuna, mixed in some tomato and avocado chunks, and placed that spicy goodness on top of some shredded lettuce inside of the gyoza shell/"taco".

Okay, so if you don't like raw fish and/or seaweed, then this might not be for you...but if you do like all of the above, then you should try it. I think it's great 'party food' since it's small, portable and utensil-free.

Tonight I made stuffed bell peppers and cajun-style sweet potato fries...also made a batch with just cracked pepper on them too. R, the bf, seemed to like the cajun-style sweet potato fries better (read: he polished them all off!). We didn't use any dipping sauce for the fries, since the flavor in the potato itself combined with the seasoning was enough. I topped the stuffed bell peppers (which was made out of about 1/4 cup ground beef (which is optional), zucchini, yellow squash, onion, garlic and mini bell peppers all diced and sauteed and seasoned) with some cheese before baking. These came out quite tasty too...
