Sausage & Pepper Bites

These taste just like the grilled Italian sweet sausage and peppers cooking at the street fairs and Italian festivals in the summertime.

One of my best memories of my Dad was of him taking me each summer to the Italian Festa on Long Island where I grew up. My Mum worked nights so it was just my Dad and I. I'd ride my favorite chair-o-plane a few times then we'd sit on a bench and eat sausage & peppers. There may have been some sfingi involved too (Italian fried dough covered in powdered sugar) but we won't talk about those.

Oh and always ride the chair-o-plane before the sausage & peppers.

Yeah learned that life lesson the hard way.
