Some dark clouds can have some pretty colossal silver linings – don’t you think? Last week I mentioned how I came home to waterworks. A pipe leading to my water heater (right by my washer and dryer) had busted. And, while we waited for the plumber, my dogs tried to help clean up the mess by trying to lap up ALL the water! The leak turned out to be a quick and easy fix and, when he was done, the plumber asked me if I needed someone else to clean up the water. But, being the cheapskate I am, I figured I’d do it myself – I mean it was just cleaning up some water, right?



When I yanked my dryer forward to clean under it, the dryer hose connecting it to the vent busted! And just when I was beginning to think this dark cloud was getting darker by the minute, I reached down to get the dryer hose when chunks of gunk began to fall from it. That hose was clogged so badly, I am just so thankful that my water pipe busted so I found that hose before it lead to a fire! After I replaced that hose, now it no longer takes us 2 cycles to dry our clothes!


And speaking of silver linings…on those days when my daughter brings home a friend amidst the busted pipes and crazy dogs and cleaning up, I sure am glad to look in my freezer and find a packet of Farm Rich Loaded Potato Skins! I am pleased as punch that my daughter and I picked up a couple of these packets at Kroger to keep on hand for unpredictable evenings and unexpected guests.


Farm Rich Loaded Potato Skins are one of those feel-good foods that are thoroughly enjoyed by my daughter and her friends as a meal or a snack #FarmRichSnacks. These hand stuffed Loaded Potato Skins are made with potatoes from Idaho and 100% cheddar cheese. I threw together a quick and easy 3 pepper salad as a side to the potato skins that was ready in the 15 minutes it took for the potato skins to bake.

How To Make A Quick and Easy and Budget Friendly, Warm 3 Pepper Salad

Chop up a red onion, 2 cloves garlic and a 1 inch piece of ginger as well as a red pepper, a green pepper and an orange pepper

  1. […] chicken salad as it is such a quick and tasty meal to enjoy. In fact, I seem to love all sorts of warm salads! You can easily double or triple the recipe and have leftovers for lunch and even dinner the next […]

  2. Jodi says:

    Look at that color! I am drooling over this one. This sounds so good and I bet the leftovers are awesome, too.

  3. You were lucky that your pipe burst as a fire would have been terrible!

  6. Catherine says:

    This sounds perfect, Shashi! What a perfect salad…I love having farm fresh on hand. It can be such a life saver sometimes. xo, Catherine

  7. I’d be hard pressed to find a silver lining in that circumstance. You poor thing! I’d happily bury myself under a platter of these and refuse to come out until everything was in order again 😛

  8. Yikes! I probably need to check my dryer hose! Frozen potato skins are perfect to have on hand for hungry kids and I love your 3 pepper salad!

  9. cottercrunch says:

    oh this is like a flavor bomb party! and i so love the little potatoes! yum! sorry about your week. I can relate. 😉

  10. Ashley says:

    Eeek! I am so glad you found that clogged hose as a result of the leak! That stuff always freaks me out! Love how quick this salad is! I need all the fast meals I can get as the holiday madness approaches!

  11. Oh geez Shashi, that is one heck of a week! BUT, I am glad all is fixed AND you can dry laundry in one cycle – score! I haven’t had Farm Rich products before, but I have seen them in the freezer section, next time I’m short on time and Boy is hungry I will have to remember these! I am a sucker for any type of salad (My family doesn’t refer to me as rabbit for no reason), and this 3 pepper salad looks fantastic! Love that it is curried AND warm, so perfect for this time of year! Cheers, dear – to silver linings! <3

  12. Oh, I love peppers, and this curried 3-peeper salad is a pepper lover’s dream! This is fabulous, Shashi. I need to try this! AH-MAZING!

  13. kitchenriffs says:

    It’s amazing what cleaning your dryer vent will do! Something we try to do fairly often — clothes dry so much quicker. Sorry about the leak — what a mess. Anyway, love curry, so this dish is right up my alley. Thanks!

  14. Love the salad Shashi, it sounds really delicious in the fall and winter I love warm salads.

  15. That salad looks amazing, especially with those potato skins. I think I’ve found my new favorite food.

  16. nagimaehashi says:

    Frozen loaded potato skins? I have never seen that before!! I can’t wait to get to LA and check out all the freezer selections that we don’t get in Australia. We don’t even have dough!

    • Shashi says:

      What??? Y’all don’t have dough??? I’d heard about the Australian produce sampling from other blogegrs – but no dough is crazy! You are not gonna wanna leave LA – will you be going to San Diego? Thats where some of the best tacos I’ve had are!

  17. Ha ha, so you’re a “cheapskate” too then Shashi? 🙂 We would definitely get on!

    I love the 3 pepper salad here. It’s just so simple but I bet it tastes so flavoursome! 😀

  18. Through Her Looking Glass says:

    Dear friend, I love silver linings. What gets me through life. Yup. Glad you discovered that dryer issue. We’ve had that happen before, and now that you mention it, might just be a good idea for us to check that hose again. Ya think? Such a gorgeous salad and I love all the bright colors. Potato skins look yummy too. Have a fabulous day!!!! xo

    • Shashi says:

      You have such a sweet soul Allie! Here’s to finding those silver linings no matter how dark ’em clouds are! Thanks so much – i hope you had a fabulous day too! xo

  19. Way to have a positive outlook on things 🙂

  20. spicedblog says:

    Oh man, I would be all over these loaded potato skins…they’re one of my faves! Speaking of dryer vents, I totally remember getting under our house in Atlanta and replacing our old dryer vent. It ran across the back of the house and it was tied up at several intervals…well that meant that it had some nice “valleys” where the dust could gather. We replaced it with a straight vent…oh good times. Haha! Sounds like you’ve had your share of housework lately, Shashi!

    • Shashi says:

      Yeah? Coincidentally, that’s what I replaced my old gnarly one with too – those valleys were more like craters in my case! I learned my lesson – I need to check on that vent more often! And I read you post – it’s not just me with the happening housework! 2 weeks and counting eh?!

  21. Glad you got the dryer fixed! I definitely love potatoes but forget about potato skins (makes no sense). They’re so good.

  22. Love all the colors and flavors you have here. Of course it’s curry so that makes it a natural winner for me too. 🙂

  23. Tara says:

    I loooooove potatoes so this sounds like the perfect thing to keep in the freezer for those emergency moments!

  24. Wow — that’s so lucky that you did find that clogged dryer hose. It’s such an important thing to remember to check. And what a lovely salad!

    Not really a potato fan, but that colourful pepper salad looks right up my alley!

    • Leah Ann Johnson says:

      the Potato skins are the best… I dont like potatoes especially, but the skins are excellent and that is where the nutrients are any how. I have a questions tho about the salad- I am allergic to corn-could it be made without ??? I would like to serve it for thanksgiving-where a number of us can not do the corn.. which is sad cause I always loved corn, growing up on a corn farm and detasseled and got corn poisoning and there fore can not have corn now 50 yrs later…

      • Shashi says:

        The potato skins are my favorite too! I am thinking this could most definitely be made without corn (so sorry you are allergic) – you could simply leave it out or substitute it with a can of chickpeas or pinto beans or even green peas, if you like. Thanks so much Leah for commenting – I sure do appreciate it. Have a wonderful Friday!

      Thanks so much Angie! 🙂
