What to do with free peppers?

Why you make stuffed peppers of course!  We rarely have stuffed peppers b/c well, let's face it, it is not the most economical meal w/ the price of peppers.  So, the other day, someone had given us an entire bag of free peppers.  All kinds of colors. 

 We had about 18 peppers.  Enough for everyone to have two but most of us ate just one as they were huge peppers.  Put some cheese in the bottom, meat mixture and then topped off w/ a little more cheese. 


They really did turn out great.  We found the recipe on cooks.com.  Wanted something simple & few ingredients.  This was a total meal in itself for sure.  All the kids loved it.  Even the picky ones!  Couldn't believe Alyona ate it.  We had these during the hurricane.  Just was great timing w/ the dreariness of the day.  Now the kids have asked when we'll have them again.  I know we'll have to make it again for sure.  I'm surprised at some of the great recipes I've gotten off that website.  Always neat to try something new every once in awhile.  This one was a hit.  The asparagus soup one time...umm, never...ever...again.  It was so bad we all just started laughing.  Tonight the kids will be disappointed.  It's leftover night.  If any of you ever come across great recipes for big families, please let me know.  I know we'll be doing some crock pot cooking w/ fall coming soon.  Can't wait.  Catching up on blog posts, can you tell?  3 posts in one day so far.  Even managed to sell a few things on Craigslist today so we're getting things done. The entire upstairs was cleaned today.  Did not even ask the kids to do it.  Just a hang out kind of day.  Have a wonderful week.
