Thanks AB and Kayelle! I think I'll sit and stare at the peppers a while longer. Many good ideas, something will come to me.

You could drop them on a neighbors porch, ring the bell and run!

Green bell peppers are unripe colored peppers, so they're not as sweet as red, yellow, etc., but they're still good. One thing you could try is halving, cleaning and freezing uncooked peppers, then using them this winter for stuffed peppers.

Aunt Bea, you so funny!

Just think Dawg, if you made a big batch of stuffed peppers and freeze them in meal-sized portions you'll have dinner ready for a while to come!


Just finishing up goofing off here. I cleaned the half-bath today, along with washing a few throw rugs from the kitchen and back hallway. When I pulled the rug at the sink area up it seemed like it was glued to the floor. Oh yeah, I then remembered I had slopped a lot of pasta water onto the rug a week or two ago. At least I missed my legs!

Now it's time to wash and dry my hair, then send himself out to cook. In the dark. I HAVE to time supper better! After 14 years I'm STILL on OH time, and the sun won't be setting till almost 9 back there.

No, I save that for the apples! Neighbors would spook if I did it with anything else!

Thanks for all the great ideas, everyone!

Just sliced a pineapple with my handy dandy new pineapple slicer. Now I'm not a huge fan of "unitaskers", but this Asian lady saw me buying a pineapple at Aldi and started a conversation about pineapple and told me that I just HAD to buy a pineapple slicer! Aldi just happened to be selling them this week for $3.99 so I got one.

I won't hesitate to buy pineapples in the future because they are a pain to clean.

Sure. All a red pepper is, is a very ripe green pepper. All peppers are green at the beginning. Leave them on the vine long enough, and they will ripen to their true color.

This is true but nonetheless, green peppers don't taste the same.

Green peppers have a slight bitter taste to them. The fully ripe ones are sweeter. Or it is what my taste buds tell me.
