RECIPE: Elle's Fajitas! (Vegetarian/Vegan)

Best Blogger Tips With a newborn and a four year-old in our house and my husband working about sixty hours a week, I don't have much time to cook.  Although I once spent a lot of time cooking, I now rely mostly on heating up freezer meals.

These fajitas are something that I can make from scratch quickly and my husband absolutely loves them.

When I made them this time, I only had two peppers.

I always core the center of the peppers first.
Then, I sliced them into strips.
Onions never made me cry until I stopped wearing contacts
and started wearing glasses.
The aroma from the steaming peppers and onions
fills up the entire kitchen!
