Dinner Team

These are the days I really REALLY need my dinner team. You know, the day when your already full work day schedule has a few extras added. My additions included:
  • Cat with recently removed cyst has an e-collar and must be hand fed and watered. Several times a day.
  • 9am Cycle/Om class
  • Lunch time appointment to have our carpet stretched, move a bunch of furniture.
  • After work eye Dr to pick out new glasses (Jolene Arredondo and Linda Robinette were so helpful!).
  • Head home to put furniture back.
  • Attend to cat. Poor guy. 
  • Fix dinner, which is gonna be a snap thanks to my team!

Start with a great recipe, I have TONS I've collected through the years from friends and family that love cooking too. With the addition of FrEsH cut (thanks to our Produce Manager John and Fruit Butcher Marie) the prep on those recipes is a snap. On this crazy day I chose a recipe from Rick's mom and made it in 10 minutes!! Awesome right? Here's the updated edition~

Italian Sausage and Pepper Sandwiches
1lb Johnsonville hot Italian link sausage, cut in 1/2" slices
2 packages John and Marie's FrEsH cut fajita mix
1 tbsp Christopher Ranch chopped garlic 
Italian seasoning (my favorite is Simply Organic)
1 of (Head Baker and Department Manager) Carson's scratch baked Artisan Baguettes
A little shredded Parm for topping. My choice is Sartori with Balsamic

Brown sausage, spoon off excess oil. Add remaining ingredients, simmer until veggies are very limp. Toast baguette in broiler with a little butter. Cuz everything's better with butter. 

In the busyness of the day I totally forgot my baguette so I served it on left over hamburger buns, I always seem to have extra of, still great but the next day we had it on a baguette... even better! 

Add a soup or salad the veggies cook and you have a complete meal.  I made a strawberry salad with spinach, arugula, FrEsH cut red onion, FrEsH cut strawberries, crumbled goat cheese and Marie's (brand) Poppy Seed dressing.

Thanks to my Team for making a home cooked, nutritious, delicious meal on a hectic day easy!
