When I saw ‘apples galore,’ I definitely mean it. I have lots of apples. I received two big bags full of apples from my Mother-in-law, who has apple trees.

I have a big bowl of apples and several serving plates of apples. I placed this white plate of apples on my dining room table for a centerpiece. I thought I would decorate my dining table with the apples.

Do you love sweet peppers? Do you love bacon? If so, then you would love sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

My husband and I were grilling one evening and we were trying to think of a different side we haven’t had. He asked, “Do we have bacon?” I said yes. We then thought that grilling sweet peppers (we had in the fridge) wrapped in bacon would be perfect.

I played with the flavor of the sweet peppers and bacon and added seasonings that I thought would taste great on the sweet peppers and bacon. The first time we made these peppers, we used a half slice of bacon with no toothpick. Withhold a toothpick, the bacon fell off of the peppers very easily. So the second time we made these peppers,we used a whole slice of bacon and purchased toothpicks to hold the sweet peppers and bacon together.

What would be a perfect main dish to go with these sweet peppers wrapped in bacon? Steak kabobs or steak would be perfect.

Check out my recipe for sweet peppers wrapped in bacon.

What do you love to make during the Summer for lunch or dinner? When it is very warm and hot outside, you don’t want to turn on the oven and get the house very warm. I either try to make something that requires only cooking on the stove or no heating at all.

One thing that is perfect on a warm, hot day is a salad. What I love about salads are there are many different possibilities for the type of salad you can make. I love making salads with spinach, romaine lettuce, or carrots. And the toppings on the salads can be anything you want. You can load your salad up with lots or vegetables or even fruit. Whatever your heart desires. As far as meat, deli meat or chicken tastes great. If I’m making a side salad with a meal, I skip the meat.
