Shine Your Teeth to Meaningless

Sheet Pan Kofta sans the kebab 
I experimented with these herby, oblong meatballs, but instead of grilling, I roasted atop my sheet pan vegetables to save time.  Lots of parsley, grated onion, garlic, cinnamon, coriander, red pepper flakes, all-spice, cumin combined with ground beef and formed into little footballs. 475 for 20-25 minutes and you have a succulent, spicy meal.  
I was big-girl hungry on this day and added a dinner salad, along with these awesome chorizo and cheddar stuffed roasted jalapenos.  Through the years I've stuffed many a jalapeno, usually parboiling and leaving whole, scraping the innards or sometimes not if I want extra spicy.  But halving them and filling is by far easiest and you can eat twice as many!  If you doubt the smoky flavor punch you get from the common jalapeno, think again and try stuffing a few tonight.  

If you are feeling a little lonely, as my 'on the spectrum' coworker says, it's okay! in the most upbeat, confident voice. Her simple yet, perfect words make brilliant sense. It's a lonely time and I figure we're all sensing it in one way or another.  But also as she says, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter!  She's absolutely right according to almost every philosopher and spiritual leader.  Recognize the gloomy seclusion, smile at it, accept that it's real and have no fear of it.  It's just passing through. It's not you.  Admire a cheesy jalapeno and relax, you are okay in this moment.
