2014 Blogger Challenge: week 6

The sixth post for our #2014BloggerChallenge is all about food!  I recently stumbled upon this awesome recipe , and when G told me it was the “best meal I had ever cooked” I almost fell out of my chair.  Naturally, I had to commemorate the occasion with a facebook post– and many of my friends asked for the recipie!  So I figured, maybe you guys would like the recipie as well!   This meal is pretty easy, honestly the hardest (and most time consuming part) is slicing the beef and the peppers.  Once that’s done you’re ready to rock and roll!
