My vegetable garden is in full bloom right now & we are beginning to get loaded down with all sorts of fresh veggie yumminess like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, beans, etc. The one thing that I don’t have plenty of this year is zucchini and I can’t tell you how sad I am about it because I LOVE fresh zucchini. I bought zucchini from seed and planted it, but they grew – it was evident that they were yellow squash. A little bummed about that but what can ya do? My garden is super full right now so once some plants start dying off, I might try planting some more & see what happens.

One thing that I definitely have enough of is banana peppers. They always grow well, and this year is no different. I have a 5 gallon bucket’s worth in my kitchen as we speak waiting on me to do something with.

I do a lot of things with banana peppers, but one of my favorites is stuffing them with sausage & cheese and baking them until tender. I can eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack – they seem to fit each meal pretty well. And, they are SO good. They are one of those things that you can’t stop eating, even after you’re as full as a tick.

Yes, they are really that good. They are also incredibly easy.

I’ll make up a super large batch of these & freeze them with my food saver for future meals. I usually bake them before I freeze them. I have frozen them with the peppers uncooked but the texture & flavor is noticeably yummier when you take the time to cook them before putting them in the freezer.
