There’s a discount produce table in Corpus Christi! Where you ask is this glimmer of vegetal hope? The Naval Air Station commissary. Who knew?

We left with two large green bell peppers 25¢, six roma tomatoes 29¢, and three red plums 26¢. All that for less than $1, and even though they were reduced in price, the quality was nothing less. Jump for joy!!

This easy summer supper is made up of caramelized onions and garlic, lean ground beef, tomato, fresh basil and parsley, chilli paste and Basmati rice stuffed into large green bell peppers. A grating of Pecorino under the cap finishes off the perfect stuffed pepper.
