Stirring some veggies in olive oil...

Adding everything else!
Easy, right?

Stuffing these pretty  things...

Adding the best part yet...Cheese!

We served them with garlic toast and applesauce.
Also, cook peppers as long as you want to desired tenderness.

  2. Hi Billie Jo~

    Just me! You wanted to know about my blog background - it's just a blogger background. I don't do very good trying to find other backgrounds, and blogger has some really pretty ones. I've always liked this background, and it's great for spring.

    Hugs,
