Our building had a wonderful surprise today. The Church folks brought tons of good homegrown vegetables and apples for all of us.

Those that have lived here for a long time say they do it every year. Guess I wasn't around last year because I had no idea. I now have Ratatoule in my slow cooker.
Tomatoes, onions, green and red peppers, green and yellow zucchini and a lot of garlic. The only spices I used were thyme, oregano and basil. I did add some wine also.

It's been so long since I made it, couldn't remembered the exact way to do it so I just layered everything and crossed my fingers that it will turn out good.

I don't see how that could turn out bad, Meo

Wish this machine didn't decide what I was trying to say. Anyway, both efforts turned out good. I had to put the crockpot in the fridge for the night to let it thicken. Will warm it tomorrow to put on spaghetti then divide it up and freeze the remainder for future meals.

I confess I do not know what an "Anaheim pepper" is.

You'll have to look it up Clark. It's the peppers that are large,look like overgrown small peppers, jalapeños or the small red peppers. I have not found them hot in any aspect. They are delicious when stuffed.

The recipe I used said to boil the peppers for 6 minutes & let them cool before stuffing them then cook in a 375 oven until cheese was melted. I used my convention oven, less energy & more efficient I think.

I should add that I didn't know their name either, until I started eating them.

Apparently they are a mild pepper, not "hot" at all.
