Easy Crockpot Chicken, Veggies and beans recipe. Just set the slow cooker and it takes care of the rest

There are some days where we know we will not have time for cooking. So what do you do? Some may say order out, or go eat out, well if we are at home we are not running out to go and buy food, it's just not happening. We will make something (sometimes not sure how or when) but by lunch time there will be food in the table.

This is one good reason to have a crockpot, as most of the recipes it's just place all the ingredient in it and let it cook.

Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers filled with cream cheese, spices and bacon.

We enjoy sweet peppers in so many ways: we love to use them as condiment while cooking, we eat them raw, stove cooked, baked, on the grill, with or without dips and stuffed.

We have done this recipe as is or cutting the sweet peppers half way and stuffing them laying down on a baking sheet. Either way they taste delicious and is pretty much the same process.

Cheesy Rice Casserole

Casseroles can be as easy or complex as you desire them to be, I love to come up with new casseroles they can be straight from scratch or we can use our leftovers.
We can put just about anything into a casserole from veggies, meat, rice or pasta to what ever you have on hand, be creative.

Dinner

I just had to share this with you all. One night while our Friend Monika was here and as we watch "I can't remember what" on TV we decided to have salad for dinner. I have to say it turned out pretty good.

But that was not all we had, we accompanied the salad with a delightful glass of wine and had some "sweet potato bites" for dessert.

It was a great dinner, and then we had more wine... Not sure at what time we went to bed.
