I know that sausage is super unhealthy. And if I think long enough about mushed up meat going through a processor thingy then coming out in a long snake I gag.
But I have been desperate for some easy (it's always gotta be easy) dinner recipes. So I took a chance on this "Baked Potatoes with Polish Sausage Stir Fry" meal that is in my hometown church's collection of favorite recipes book. It is by my dear jr/sr high teacher, Mrs. V., who helped me through dissecting a pig and made me not that afraid of accounting. And once a year we'd go to her house for whole wheat pancakes and it was such a cool thing.
Baked potatoes for your family
1 Tbsp oil
1/2 lb fat free polish sausage, sliced
1 small chopped onion
1 tart apple, chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli, chopped
Bake potatoes in oven. In a skillet on medium high burner stir fry ingredients for 8-10 minutes. Serve over hot baked potatoes. Serves 2-4.
My changes: couldn't find polish sausage so I did summer. I used the whole pound. Sliced the apples rather than chopped. Microwaved taters instead of in oven. Served with fresh salad. And brownies afterward because I have a problem.
I liked the medley of flavors and the apples would've turned out better and had less of a tart overhang had I chopped them smaller.
Got any easy recipes for this novice?
I didn't start using olive oil until a couple years ago.
I actually painted my nails!

Go here for an awesome giveaway by my friend Katy, benefiting the Joyful Life Library (there's a $20 credit to my shop up for grabs amidst a gaggle of other treats!)That's it for now, folks.
