Sausage and pepper skillet and Q and U wedding attire

As most of you know, Bill and I moved our kids out of the Catholic school they were attending and are choosing to enroll them into our public school district. Well I have been pleasantly surprised by how smooth the transition has been and what great years the kids have had. I have been especially impressed with the willingness of Jacob's Kindergarten teacher to work with us through his issues and problems. I have also been impressed with her originality. For example, yesterday they were working on the spelling words like queen, and quiet, etc. So they had a wedding for Q and U. Q and U got married and the kids were asked to come to school dressed like they were going to a wedding. Jacob wanted to wear his fancy dress up clothes, so he did (with his tennis shoes as he has no dress shoes!). He looked so grown up! 

Also the other day when I posted my menu plan, Carol in CT asked that I post my sausage and peppers recipe so here it is....I originally found the recipe I think on the Johnsonville sausage website, but I have tweaked it a little over the years and so can make it from scratch at this point. If you decide to make it, I hope you enjoy it!
