Chef Me

As a result of our crazy house hunting, house prepping, and house showing schedule of the last few weeks, our eating habits have not been especially good. We've eaten out entirely too much, with the excuse of being tired after long hours of working hard on home projects. When we have actually prepared something at home, the meals have been incredibly simple. Whatever has dirtied the fewest dishes is basically what we've done, which means we've been eating entirely too many frozen pizzas.

Besides keeping the kitchen clean, my other goal at mealtime is to use up something that has been in our pantry for entirely too long. I'm thinking that if and when we actually do move, every random can of something in the back of the cupboard that's gone is one less thing we'll have to pack! So tonight while Chad was out playing golf with his buddies, I took it upon myself to create a dinner even though we hadn't been grocery shopping in a couple of weeks. There was no milk for cereal (or else I most likely would have eaten that for dinner), but I did have a leftover chicken sausage from a cookout on Sunday, one green pepper, and a small can of chunk pineapple. With those three items, I stir fried myself this lovely concoction!




Doesn't that look yummy? I was clearly quite proud of myself, considering I rarely cook--especially when there is only me to cook for. It was quite tasty, although I will admit that the tastiness was mostly due to the fact that this chicken sausage we've been buying is flipping amazing! I can't remember what brand they are, but they have buffalo wing flavor (looks like a brat, tastes like a wing!), apple sausage flavor and roasted red pepper and something flavor, which is what I had tonight. Next time we get them I'll write down the brand so I can blog about these things properly! Good stuff!

That was a little over-dramatic, huh?

Not at all--good food is important stuff! :) I'll let you know as soon as we make it to the grocery store!

I'm as interested in knowing the brand as Amy especially if it has less fat than regular smoked sausage.
