Lasagna Stuffed Bell Peppers

Lasagna Stuffed Bell Peppers (Gluten-Free and Low-Carb)

My very good friend Cindy from Just North of Wiarton  sent me the link to this super delicious recipe. This Lasagna Stuffed Bell Pepper recipe is from the fantastic website called Wholesome Yum. I’ve been interested in the gluten-free, low-carb, keto-friendly way of eating for sometime now. I ‘thought’ it would be difficult to adjust too, boring and expensive. The truth is, it’s really not that difficult, it’s certainly not boring and not expensive at all, actually quite the opposite.

Friends

A good friend doesn’t necessarily mean one that you have met or hang out with on a regular basis. Cindy and I met through blogging over seven years ago. We became fast friends and our friendship has developed over the years. Cindy doesn’t blog as often as she once did, so we started chatting more on Facebook. Over time that has evolved to0. Now we text each other almost daily and have spoken on the phone a couple of times. I’m not much of a “talk on the phone” kinda gal but I can text all day:) I never thought it was possible to know someone who has the exact same interests, likes, dislikes, thoughts and past ‘family life’ history as we do.

Twin Somewhere

The similarities between the two of us is uncanny, unreal and down right bizarre:) They say everyone has a twin somewhere!! Well mine lives in Canada. I’m planning a visit, hopefully this fall, to visit Cindy in Wiarton Ontario. All I need to do is get my passport (to get into Canada & back into the US), book a hotel room, book a flight to Toronto or somewhere close and cross my fingers that Rob, the Crabby Cabbie aka Hoarder Husband aka Cindy’s hubby can pick me up:)

Life’s Journey

I could drive to Wiarton Ontario. It’s a twelve hour drive one way (the flight is an hour and a half) but that’s just a little too far for this old lady to drive all by herself. My driving skills have gone down the toilet somewhat since I’ve reached the “Golden Years.” You might be wondering then, why my hubby doesn’t come with me? He could do the driving since that’s what he does for a living. Well, there are some journeys in life you just need to do alone and for me, this is one of those journeys.
