Note:

Orange Bell Peppers.  They are so pretty but I forgot to eat them with my salad so now that they are wrinkly and I don’t want to have them raw.  They are still edible which is why we are tossing them into a soup. Don’t be afraid to use vegetables when they don’t look pretty.  All the nutrients are still locked inside.
