Worked until 6PM on my Nutrition Education questions – that’s a reason for celebration!!! Straight outta the wine cube.
Matt and I could not figure out what to do for dinner. We knew these Applegate Farms Sweet Italian Chicken + Turkey sausage would be involved, along with some peppers, but we didn’t know how.
- Pasta with Ragu
- Pasta with leftover squash soup
Matt had brought home a fresh mini loaf of sourdough, so that moved to the high priority spot as the starch of dinner over pasta.
I was craving brussels sprouts and we happened to have some in the freezer, although they were freezer-burned a bit. Story of my life.
I debated a sauce for the stir-fry and remembered we had a sample of Tribal Moose Cranberry BBQ Sauce delivered recently.
And then I remembered we had actual cranberries in the freezer from last fall!!
After blanching the frozen brussels for a few minutes in near-boiling water to warm them to the core, we blanched the cranberries just until they started to pop
Meanwhile the sausage + peppers were getting brown in a skillet and we tossed in the blanched cranberries + brussels.
Then drizzled with the Tribal Moose and served with the crusty bread
The bread was awesome – crusty + chewy + dotted with butter on the underside, which slid into the bowl and got on some cranberries and I died and went to heaven!
+ Dinner portion
Stood on a chair to get this! And still couldn’t get the whole shot. Say goodbye to overviews!
This is going to be the new overview shot –
Didn’t need a snack this afternoon ’cause I was working hard, but I did get this fun package from The Healthy Apple Amie! Love KIND bars and haven’t had one in ages –
Currently nibbling on a Bliss Milk Chocolate and about to go watch a movie with the husband.
