Harvest time, thanksgiving time! And I am not going to give you my favorite turkey recipe. To tell the truth, I like turkey on Thanksgiving, but I am moving toward less and less meat in my diet, for environmental reasons. And what’s not to love about vegetables? Both green beans and brussels sprouts are on
Looking at all the lovely vegetables available and on sale these days (for example green peppers (.97/lb at No Frills), pie pumpkins (.97/ea. at No Frills), and winter squash, I started thinking about stuffed vegetables.
