As we enter a new year,
wishing all my friends, co-bloggers and readers a very happy and healthy new
year. The resolution for me as a blogger is of course to blog more, work upon
my photography skills, revamp my blog, update my recipe index … the list seems
daunting , but I shall take baby steps on this….
Coming to today’s post –
Tri Bell Pepper Cheese Toast…
Bell peppersaka capsicum /
Shimla Mirch is one of favourite veggies at home – both for me and the kids.
This week’s theme for Blogging Marathon is part of Valli’s event Kids Delights – Party Pleasers Theme is hosted by Priya Srinivasan.
Considering I make this
often for both parties and as an after school snack, I experimented with a
combo of all peppers available, and it turned out pretty good. Both my girls
are not into too much cheese, so I cut down that quite a bit. But for cheese
lovers, you can top it with as much as required.
