When it comes to meal time, I’m lucky enough to have a family that has a wide range of likes, & very few things they dislike.  For this dinner, I wanted to use up some of the rescued produce I had on hand, including some gorgeous red, orange & yellow bell peppers.  Now my husband isn’t crazy about bell peppers, but he’s a good sport.  So I thought, everything is a series of compromises – he’s not big on bell peppers, but (if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you already know) he’s a big fan of cheese!  Give a little, take a little – and we’re both happy!  Families with kids are usually trying to sneak in some healthy vegetables whenever possible,  & this is a creative way to do just that, while still enjoying a “fun” family dinner!

So, in keeping it simple & showcasing this lovely vegetable, I made this delicious squash & potato soup. Continue reading
