I ran across the idea of glazing bell pepper strips with ketchup in Just Bento, but was skeptical until I found myself short on time and needing to use up some bell pepper. I do like ketchup, but as Makiko Itoh says, ketchup does seem a little...something these days. Americans are stereotyped as putting ketchup on everything, and ketchup, like Jello salad, is seen as woefully unsophisticated. But this was really delightful--an excellent flavor. So try adding some ketchup and a bit of red pepper flakes after you've stir fried bell pepper strips sometime, and see what happens. You might actually like it.
Incidentally (this didn't occur to me until I was halfway through lunch), this is vegan and gluten free.

I was in a terrible hurry this morning, but this was fine. And I love the cocoa cakes. I wish I were the sort of blogger random companies sent food to so I didn't have to pay for them--although then again, maybe I don't wish that.
