|When life gives you squash|
and a lot of it, you best find
yourself a good squash recipe
and learn how to make it.
I modified the recipe that called for apples and nuts
added to a butter and cinnamon sugar juice to include
stir fry veggies instead of the apples and nuts.
It was good.....not to mention squash halves
can really fill ya up.

The Peppers From the Garden
| Which Make GreatVegetarian Stuffed Peppers|
6 med. green peppers
2 c. cooked rice
1 lg. egg, slightly beaten or 1/4 c. Eggbeaters
1 c. chopped onion
1 sm. can tomatoes or 1 (10 oz.) can Rotel tomatoes
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 c. bread crumbs or wheat germ
1 1/4 c. grated Cheddar cheese
Cut off tops of peppers and remove and discard seeds. Dice tops, discarding stems, and mix all ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup cheese. Stuff peppers and place in a round microwave casserole. Put extra filling around peppers. Peppers should fit tightly. Cover with plastic wrap, piercing 4-5 times for vents. Microwave on High 15 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved cheese. Cover; let stand 2-3 minutes. Then serve. This dish can be made ahead and frozen for later use. Do not cook until after thawed.
I modified this recipe and parboiled the peppers, added some tuna, and cooked them at 350 in the oven for 30 minutes
and they were yummy.
