Rainy Day Crockpot Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Here's a pretty easy recipe for a easy frugal family meal staple - old-fashioned Crockpot Stuffed Peppers.

We've had a fair amount of rain this year in New England, much of it falling on weekends!  On those types of days I like to stay home and cook up a "storm."

Slow Cooker Meal Ideas

I've been preparing quite a few OAMC Freezer Meals and I just replaced my old slow cooker with a new crockpot from a Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker and am having so much fun checking out new recipes and enjoying ones I had forgotten about!  Not too long ago I held a contest here for the re-launch of my new blog design and gave one away!
