Back from Camping

Just returned from the family vacation to Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons & Custer State Park. The above pic is of Economic Geyser in Yellowstone. (Yeah, yeah, I know it’s cheesy, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have a picture.)

Needless to say, I’m kinda tired.

But it was awesome & I loved every minute of the camping, hiking, animals, nature, mini-van riding trip.

Did quite a bit of cooking on this trip & wanted to share with you this super easy, kid approved recipe:

Pizza Stew:
6-ounce package sliced pepperoni, cut into fourths
1, Large onion, diced
1, Large green bell pepper, diced
1 tbsp oil
2, 15 oz. cans diced tomatoes with roasted garlic, with juice
1 cup water
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
Salt, pepper to taste
Shredded mozzarella cheese

– Cook onion in oil
– Add tomatoes, water & Italian seasoning & bell pepper
– Cover, reduce heat, simmer until thick
– Put pepperoni in bowl w/ a layer of paper towels, microwave 30 seconds or so- to soak up excess grease
– Toss pepperoni in soup
– Serve with mozzarella chees

Next time I make this, I want to add some black olives….or maybe some other pizza toppings…..

Hope you like it as much as we did!
