What's for Dinner?


A VERY easy one:

Bucatini pasta with pesto, topped with sliced and sauteed feta/spinach chicken sausage* and roasted brussel sprouts.   This is not homemade pesto, just jarred, but as soon as I start getting bunches of basil from the farm share, I'll be making my own again.

*These chicken sausages come in about 5 varieties from the "all natural" meat section of our grocery store.  I usually get the chicken apple sausage, but we also like the roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato kinds.  I use them for quick dinners about once a week, and it has sort of turned into the only meat we regularly eat. 

I've been photographing the food on our back deck, and when I walked out the door with a plate in hand, Skyler said to herself:  "mom's giving her dinner some fresh air again."

Anything with feta has to be amazingly good. I will definitely be trying this one!!

Actually last night I was talking to my sister on the phone and serving my kids dinner at the same time. We were having pasta and brussel sprouts too by the way. And she was like, "Ewwww why would you feed brussel sprouts (did I spell them right?)to your kids?" Soooo you have to imagine how validated I felt this morning when I woke up and read this post!!

Ha ha! Take that, sis!!!
