Do you have a Memorial weekend project? I do! I hope to achieve it this weekend, or well maybe even next  Thursday, is painting my kitchen wall with chalkboard paint. The wall sits behind the kitchen table. It should be perfect for displaying the weekly menu and chores.

It can even be a cool background display in birthday party pictures. No more banners, just chalk up the wall with a creative “Happy Birthday” and let all the guests sign the wall. Yes, I am currently still a 5 year old inside but who doesn’t love some chalk!

Loaded with beans, corn, and topped with cheese they are easy to make. Just stuff and grill them for a short bit. Very tasty and you can add the cheese at the end if you would like.

  1. This is so great Jeene I never thought about just using half. I always deconstruct mine and that is about all I eat is half. I cannot wait to try this!

  2. I am trying to think of something creative to come up with. Not a basket cause then it just gets moved around a tears the covers. I just can’t think of anything.

  3. I am definitely going to have to come back and see if anyone has ideas for cookbooks… I am unpacking my new house right now, and really need an idea for all of mine. I have too many?

    I love stuffed peppers – I just made some last night!

    1. I am going to be adding a ton of cookbook reviews over the next few weeks. I have a stack and one for sure I know everyone would love.
