MINIONS Stuffed Peppers

MINIONS Stuffed Peppers from KitchenFunWithMy3Sons.com

I really wanted stuffed peppers last night and knew that my boys would not be happy about it. SO...we came up with this fun MINIONS Stuffed Peppers idea to get them interested in eating it. This worked on two of them at least and they loved it!

MINION Stuffed Peppers

4 Yellow Bell Peppers 
1 Package of Microwaveable Brown Rice
1 lb. Ground Turkey 
1 8 oz. Can Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce 
1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper 
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 Zucchini 
Black Olives

 Heat oven to 375°F. Cut thin slice from stem end of each bell pepper to remove top. Remove seeds and membranes; rinse peppers. Reserve tops & one peppers. If necessary, cut thin slice from bottom of peppers so they stand up straight. 

 Cook rice in microwave as directed on package. Meanwhile, in 12-inch skillet, cook turkey over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until turkey is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce, the ground pepper and cooked rice. Stir in half of cheese Stuff peppers with turkey mixture. Pour remaining tomato sauce inside the peppers & place in a ungreased 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish. Stand peppers upright in dish. Also line up the pepper slices in the dish to cook. Cover tightly with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake about 15 minutes longer or until peppers are tender. 

Cut a few thin slices from the zucchini and press them on the front of the peppers (it will stick). Cut the tips off of the black olives and press them on the zucchini slices.  Cut strips from the remaining olives to make the hair, glasses, and mouth.

Easy Monkey Birthday Cake

Easy Monkey Birthday Cake from KitchenFunWithMy3Sons.com

My youngest turned 5 this past week and wanted a big monkey themed party at our house, but we have had the craziest schedule with the boys going back to school. I just really didn't have time to have a big party this year for him...so he picked out his favorite pizza place and invited some close friends for Go Karts. I had so many cute monkey food ideas, but will just have to share those later on.

I did however come up with this super easy Monkey Birthday Cake for him using cookies to decorate and this takes just minutes to make!  

Easy Monkey Birthday Cake

Chocolate Cake Mix
Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
Chocolate Frosting
1 Large Marshmallow
4 Jumbo Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips (jumbo or regular)
Chocolate Cookie Icing

Make 2 round cakes according to the package directions. Let the cakes cool. 

Make your cookie mix according to the package directions and shape 1 very large cookie and 2 other large cookies. Bake about 5 to 10 minutes longer then the directions. Cut off one side of the 2 large cookies using a knife.  Cool and then place the chocolate chips in the microwave until melted. Spread the chocolate on back of the cookies. Press on 2 popsicle sticks on the sides like this...


Place the cookies in the refrigerator until set. Using the hardened chocolate will keep the cookies from breaking.

Make your chocolate frosting or use store bought. Place your frosted cake on a large plate. Add the cookie ears on the sides and the extra large cookie on the bottom top. Cut the large marshmallow in half and place the halves above the cookie. Add on the jumbo chocolate chips for the pupils and nose using frosting.

Add a mouth using your chocolate cookie icing.
