Instead of a teaser, this time I’m going to give you all a recipe (well, actually, it’s more of a guide to a great meal) that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the upcoming Sale of the Week. I just can’t think of another little haiku, poem, or limerick right now.
This is a dish that my mother came up with back when we all lived together, and it has come to be known, in our house, as “The Meal.” It’s just that good, and we really, REALLY love it.
First of all, gather your favorite veggies. What we like:
Cut these all up into bite-sized pieces. De-skin the potatoes if you like. Onion can be chopped into small pieces.
Grab some spices and seasonings:
Grab some chicken sausage – we always get the Adele’s, and have tried all the flavors with this dish. What I particularly love is to have a few different types – maybe a sweet and a savory? Slice that sausage up.
Heat the oil on Medium in a nice-sized skillet, and add some garlic (everything is just kind of “to taste” in this recipe). Add the onions and the other seasonings, and cook until onions are translucent-esque. Add the sweet potatoes and other potatoes, and cook for a bit. Then add the brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and anything else you wish. Cook it all, stirring frequently, and add the sausage whenever you wish. (I like for the sausage to get a bit browned, so I add it shortly after the veggies). Cook until the veggies are super-bright and as crunchy or soft as you want them. (We love crunchy veggies, so we don’t cook it too-too long).
We add a generous handful of shredded Parmesan cheese (oh, how I love me some Parmesan cheese!), and enjoy like crazy.
