4. Veggies in a Pinch
You take sweet peppers.  [Costco sells then by the bag full, Yellow, red, orange.] Clean them out.  Take a baby carrot and wrap in Cheddar cheese slice [or any kind of cheese], and stuff it into the pepper.  (you may not need the whole slice of cheese}   Stick them into a 350 oven and bake for 20 minutes or until they are soft.  Or wrap in foil and stick them on the Barb B Q grill if you are using it.  They are great.  Enjoy
