When it looks like THIS outside…
…and every tree is sight is covered with frost and snow…
…it’s SO WONDERFUL to be able to pull out some of these…
…delicious green peppers, straight from the garden, rather the freezer! But straight from the garden into the freezer…
…and remember that spring is coming. But not soon enough!
Green peppers can be frozen “straight up” but please know that they will thaw and be, not mushy, but soft. They lose their crunchiness after being frozen. But that doesn’t matter when you’re dicing and tossing them into the slow cooker!
“How to Load your Slow Cooker”
I know it’s simple and basic. But here you go anyways!

I love the envelopes! I’ll have to pass that website on to others. Thank you.
That sounds really good. Might have to put it on the menu for next week.
Great recipe. I am reading through your book right now and I have to say that I love your easy recipes with basic ingredients. We seem to share many of the same ideas, keep up the good work and thanks for publishing this great cookbook!
“Spicify!” I love it!! Looks super yummy, too!
Great meal idea. Also, thank you for your sincerity and honesty in your “funk” today. I will join you in prayer for Haiti.
We tried this last night and it was delicious. I can see it will quickly become one of our favorites!
I was wondering if you thought it would also work well for chicken and if so, if there would be any alteration to the cooking time?

Chicken could work…Although I’d probably just bake it in the oven. Chicken in the crockpot comes out with a more “pulled chicken” like texture. It’s not bad, just different.

In case you like hiking, mountain climbing, or just traveling and camping out, then sleeping bags come in pretty handy. Sleeping bags are comfy readymade beds. Incredibly uncomplicated to set up. You might just lay it and you’re ready to use it. But note that not all sleeping bags are the identical.
