Hey guys! Happy Friday to you all I’m actually still sick, so I’m waiting for the doctor’s office to open so I can hopefully make an appointment. There’s a new, weird development: my skin hurts! Not my muscles, but my skin is sore to the touch…anyway, I hope I can get in to see someone today because that doesn’t seem normal.
Dinner last night was Sausage, Onion, and Pepper Hoagies with a big side salad!
I tried my hand at the nut butter parsnip fries I saw on Oh She Glows last week too. MAJOR FAIL. They tasted horrible and the texture kind of grossed me out. Guess I know that I don’t like them now! The sandwich, however, was fabulous:
- 1 pound turkey sausage links
- 1 red bell pepper (or whatever color you like), sliced into 1/2 inch strips
- 1 onion (I used a yellow onion), sliced into 1/2 inch strips
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp each of dried basil and dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup prepared marinara (I used a jarred sauce)
- 1/2 cup water
- 5 hoagie rolls
- mozzarella cheese
In a skillet over medium heat, heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Add the sausage links and cover, cooking for 5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat onto a plate and cover with foil. In the same pan, add the peppers and onions and 1 Tbsp of water to deglaze the pan. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Then add the marinara and 1/2 cup of water and stir to combine. Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the turkey sausage links into 4-6 pieces per link. Add back to the skillet and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Remove from heat and serve either by itself or in a hoagie roll topped with a little mozzarella. Done!
With a simple salad of romaine and carrots:
We also had some break ‘n’ bake chocolate chip cookies, but I didn’t take pictures of those. Basically as soon as we were done eating and cleaning up I went to bed. I was SUCH a party pooper, but I felt horrible and figured sleep would be just what I needed!
This morning I got up and realized that I still felt bad and should likely go to the doctor. My mom mentioned I might have the flu, which scares the crap out of me, so if that’s the case I want to make sure I can get better soon! I had leftover split pea soup for breakfast because it just sounded good:
MARRIAGE REF PART 3 (that’s what the title of this post is supposed to be…just in Spanish!)
So this is actually not a HUGE issue in my marriage, but I did have quite a few of you write in about this little issue, AND it’s something that definitely needs to be addressed in my workplace When you load the dishwasher, do you prefer to leave the food particles/sauce/etc on the dishes, or rinse and scrape them completely before putting them into the dishwasher? Sorry, no pictures today! Make sure you leave a comment with what you prefer and at the end of the day I’ll tally them up and we’ll have a winner!!! Remember: you could be helping someone’s marriage by doing so
