In The English Kitchen today  . . .  Quick & Easy Pepper Steak for two. This was something I made often for my family when they were growing up. It was a great way to stretch a small amount of meat to feed a lot of people. (7) Now there is only me, so I have downsized it. Same delicious flavors. 

I hope you have a wonderful Friday! I slept really poorly last night. Yesterday I moved the litter box into the bathroom in anticipation of my brother's arrival next week. When I got up in the middle of the night to go to the loo, Nutmeg got into the bedroom. It took me forever to get him out and even longer to fall back asleep!  The little munchkin!  Whatever you get up to today, don't forget!
