The husband came home with a small sausage link and a fresh zucchini. Combined with crushed tomatoes, seasonings, whole wheat spaghetti and Asiago – dinner came together.
We always make our own marinara sauces. I just don’t like what they put in the jars very much – they leave a gross aftertaste in my mouth (which I’m guessing is in the form of onion!?). Our sauce was a can of crushed tomatoes, caraway seeds, oregano, garlic, red pepper flakes and S+P.
I have to say, this dinner was quite disappointing for a volume eater. While the sausage tasted good, I would have preferred a turkey or chicken sausage so I could have twice the meat! Just a measly 2 ounces of this pork sausage was 200 kcal and 18 grams of fat. If you LOVE sausage, it might be worth it, but I thought it tasted just like other ground meats and would have preferred to get more stretch out of my portion.
From above –
Dinner was about 500 kcal, 10 grams of fiber and 22 grams of protein.
This isn’t including the 3 big swigs of the husband’s beer I had!
I wanted something creamy for snack today and since you know our fridge is empty, I had limited options. But of course there’s always pumpkin!!
I heated some up with some pumpkin pie spice and a tsp of brown sugar. Then I filled in the edges with vanilla hemp milk and topped it all with some Kashi GoLean.
With hot tea and 2 rosemary quackers!
We’re off to watch the Duke game and possibly visit our neighbor, who seems to be throwing a bit of an ACC Tourney party!
