Stuffed Bell Peppers - Slowcooker Style

I have been craving stuffed peppers for a while, but don't really have the time to make them in the oven with working full time. So, I decided to try them in the crockpot.
Here's what I used:
4 - Bell Peppers
1 - Large Egg
 1lb of Ground beef or (ground turkey would work)
2 Cups Minute Rice
I can of tomato soup
2 cans of tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
First, cut the top off your bell peppers and gut. Discard the top and the insides. Rinse the bell peppers set aside. In a large bowl combine with your hands, the ground meat, egg, and 2 cups of rice. Add salt & pepper if you wish. Stuff peppers with rice/meat/egg mixture you just mixed with your hands.
In slowcooker, pour cans of tomato sauce, soup & water. Stir. Then place the stuffed peppers into the crock pot, I spooned some of the tomato sauce over the pepper then just cover on low for 4 hours.
(I put them on at 8 am - came home at 12 for lunch they were done, but I left them on "keep warm" and the peppers were just perfectly tender when i got home from work at 5p)

Prep was less than 15 minutes!
 That's my kinda dinner! Let me know if you try this recipe. :)

Shabby Inspired

I love country, shabby decor. I'm not one to like straight lines or wood finishes that are all the same. I want a mix!
Yesterday was the local quilt and art festival in which The Aroboretum hosted and Stitchin' Heaven's customers sponsored the quilts hanging in the park. It was a beautiful day. The beautiful flowers and green everywhere was gorgeous. I woke up today refreshed and ready for something new. I didn't go out and buy anything new, I just rearranged what I had.
So, from a previous post, where I showed fabric pictures on the entry door wall, I have taken those down and now have this:
The girls then brought in a gorgeous Magnolia. How beautiful!
That's it! My weekend inspiration!
Tomorrow I'll put up my Slowcooker Stuffed Bell Pepper recipe. Prep time is less than 15 minutes!
