Stuffed Pepper Soup and Pumpkins

 We stopped at a farm market on Saturday and this is what we saw.....Pumpkins!!!

 I'm not a big fan of these warty ones.


 I stocked up on gourds.


 I baked a bunch of French bread.

 And then I picked more peppers and made stuffed pepper soup.  Dice 1 large onion, 4 garlic cloves and about 8 peppers.  Saute' them in about 3 T. of oil or you can use bacon grease to add a smokey flavor.  Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and 1/2 tsp. of dried thyme.

 Add 1-1/2 # of ground beef.  Stir and break up until it browns.

 Add 4 cups of tomato sauce.  I used some which I made with my tomatoes.  Add 2 cups of beef bouillon.  I added a few beef bouillon cubes for added flavor.  Taste it and adjust seasoning if it needs it.

Add 3 cups of cooked rice.  Voila...deconstructed stuffed peppers.
