Supper anyone

I spent my day not as I had originally planned but worth while none the less.
I picked fresh veggies from my garden and decided I had to do something with them.
I planned stuffed peppers for dinner and figured while I was at it I made up 12 more for the freezer.

What else to do with green peppers?????????

I cut some up and put them in the freezer for use over the winter.

But what else??

I chopped some up and made spaghetti sauce. We'll have lasagna some time this week and the rest I'll put in the freezer.

I moved on to hot peppers next. I stuffed those with a sausage stuffing and par baked them to go into the freezer. When I get them out to eat later I just add sauce to warm them. DH and I like those as a side dish with spaghetti.
Sorry no pics. I got busy.

I've got some zucchini and squash baking right now in the oven. It was a recipe my SIL made we loved it so I'm trying it tonight to use up some more zucchini. Tori wants to make some bread tomorrow so it'll use up the rest of the zucchini that's been shredded.

The jalapeno peppers are already for stuffing too. Salsa was on the menu but none of my tomatoes are ripening because of the lousy summer we are having here in PA. So stuff them I will.

I try to use the bounty that God provides to me. I love taking things out of the freezer through the winter and knowing they came from our garden.

Anyone hungry???

Now for the big reveal. I finished painting the chimney cupboard...........

Not too bad even if I do say so myself. I'm not sure is I would take more off next time. I think I'll look for a piece at the TS to see if I can tweak my technique a bit.

Now it's off to sew. What I really wanted to relax and spend my day doing.

OK-I made the pics bigger, and I think you did a SUPER job, I think you took just the right amount off, and made it worn in just the right places too! Worn to the wood where the knobs are...and worn to look dirty/blk in the other places...PERFECTION! :)

Love the cupboard!
I'm in Pa (Beaver County .. New Bighton area)too but my tomatoes are the only things that I'm growing that are doing well this year. Even the zucchini is disappointing and zucchini is usually so easy to grow.
Thanks for letting me know about the pumpkin penny rug in the Country Sampler magazine. I'll definitely have to go take a look.
