Stuffed Peppers and Tomatoes

Evka and Blaze came over last Saturday to spend time with us. They are our landlords. They have been very kind to us, especially to add an AC unit in the living room and a washing machine in the bathroom:) They have been helping us to learn more about the Macedonian culture. They are both retired teachers.
First they took us to the green market to help us select the best meats and vegetables. When we got back to the house, Evka and I started cooking. She showed me how to cook the onions, meat, Vegeta seasoning, and parsley together. This mixture is what I used to stuff the tomatoes and peppers. Honestly I did not expect to enjoy this meal but it turned out really delicious! Actually I'm going to try to cook this same (by myself- without Evka's help) this Saturday for guests. :) Hopefully it will turn out just as good!

Hey JIll! I am so glad to see you are forming some great relationships with the people there. What a great opportunity to have your landlords in your home and to cook together with Evka. I would LOVE to have that recipe whenever you have time to send it. It looks absolutely delicious! Hope you all are well. Love and miss you! Cher
