Friday Night Meanderings...A new recipe

Been thinking and thinking of what to write about and nothing came to mind except perhaps a new recipe as I'm in the middle of a bunch of projects and no finished one to show you.  Stuffed Peppers with a twist came to mind.  This is a great recipe.  Easy to make and wonderful to freeze.  They reheat in the micro really well. 

If your anything like me, you like to be able to go to your freezer and say "Voila! Dinner".  Just add your sides and you have a great and very easy meal.  I have loads of things in my freezer that I can pull out  to make an easy night of it.  Chicken Parmesan, Spaghetti Sauce and Meatballs, Meatloaf, Hamburgers, Home made Onion Soup (Crock Pot Recipe), the Peppers we are seeing here, my Microwave Chili, cooked onions and peppers for hamburgers or Philly Cheese Steaks, onions alone and peppers alone, depends on what we are having for dinner or lunch and of course, all kinds of rolls, breads and buns to go along with everything and as always frozen Papa John's thin crust pizza (cheese, green peppers, and pepperoni (love Papa John's thin crust pizza).  Care to come for dinner?    As you might ask, I have 2 freezers, thank heavens.  OK, enough chat, on to the recipe .... Enjoy.  Try it and let me know how you like it.
