It has been a busy week at work and with the weather I have been kinda blah about doing anything particular once I get home. Meals have had to be quick.
I made this dish quite awhile ago and I remembered liking it, but as my husband says I make something we like then we never see it again because I am constantly looking to try something new. Guilty as charged. So, this week when I needed something super quick and simple I brought back Spicy Sausage Pasta from Kevin & Amanda. Kevin & Amanda was one of the first blogs I started following - there are zillions of beautiful photos of food, travel and their adorable Boston Terriers. I now have so many other blogs that I read regularly I often forget to get back to this one.
Back to dinner. First, I sauteed the turkey smoked sausage and onions in a large pan.
Tuesday/night Wednesday morning we got a nice bit of snow.
Tarragon is prominently featured in my first issue of Cooking Light. I confess I have had a fear of tarragon because of the licorice flavor...I hate licorice. But there are several recipes that sound delicious, so I found a packet to try. Mary at Runs to Get Waisted told me about her signature chicken salad - chicken, mayo, garlic, tarragon and lemon zest. Since I was making chicken salad anyway I decided to give it a whirl.
On the way out, I picked up this little booklet. Aldi has always catered to people on a budget including those on state assistance programs. There has been wide critcism about healthy foods not being affordable. I think Aldi is doing a great job addressing this issue.
I had to go to a different store to get tarragon and while I was there I noticed NY strip steak marked down. Since I didn't have anything planned for dinner yet I got a couple.
I have done some shopping for new recipes, so hopefully I will be inspired this weekend. Our weekend getaway has been postponed due to residual affects of the flooding in December. We were supposed to visit a cave with an underground lake. What are your plans?
