Suggestions needed!

Saturday my Sunday School class is having an event called "Cooking with Claire." I am the chef and make dinner for everyone with recipes provided. I am doing stuffed peppers but am at a loss for what to serve with them. Anyone have ideas? Nothing fancy really needed! I'm ready for your suggestions!

Make garlic bread and salad. They are both easy, but can also be hands-on for the kids. My toddler loves to help make salad. My kid's cookbooks say to give them a disposible plastic knife. I know that they are not perfect with the peppers, but they are definitely easy!

I would have said bread and salad too....the only other thing I can think of that I've had with stuffed peppers before is rice.

What kind of stuffed peppers are you making? If they aren't stuffed with rice, I would do some kind of rice. With the Southwest Stuffed peppers I made, I served black beans.

This will be fun! Can't wait to read about it.

Guess we need to know what you're stuffing the peppers with! And are you cooking for adults or kids- that would make a difference.

I would do a fruit of some kind, but I'm a bit of a fruit nut. Maybe fruit on a skewer if you have time ahead, or just a simple fruit salad. Or apple wedges with dip if it's for kids.

How about a spinach and orange salad? It would be different, but still easy to do. If your peppers are Southwestern influenced, you could do tortilla chips and queso or a fresh tomato salsa. Along the fruit line, a friend of mine recently made cinnamon chips with flour tortillas, and then made a fruit salad, chopped finer than normal and mixed with a bit of yogurt to make a fruit salsa of sorts.

These peppers are stuffed with rice and beef (but I'm going to use turkey). I might also do a couple of veggie ones. I will probably end up doing salad. This is for ADULTS. I'm doing a white chocolate banana pie for dessert, which I will post after the event!

I'd go with a big Italian salad. You could use romaine,chopped peppers, onions, tomatoes, sweet yellow peppers, olives, cucumbers. It's pretty basic, but the olives and yellow peppers add a lot of character.

At my sorority house, we had these last night. We served them (along with porcupine balls which are vegetarian) with rolls and italian green beans. I would suggest garlic bread or maybe a bean side dish? Have fun!

So how did your "cheffing" go? :-)
