Never too busy to cook, right? I have been a little overly busy lately. I was a bit behind schedule getting the Diner News out. Saturday was my kitchen day. Then it rained and was so gloomy all day. No photo ops at all. Since I had three grocery stores to visit on Friday, just a little bit of cooking got done then.
So it all fell on Sunday. Let me say, goodbye to my regular prep routine. It was all sausages, all day. Sausages, you say? Why sausages? Well, that happens to be the Diner News theme this month. I really am a fan of sausages. There are so many more healthy options that we had a few years ago. Many are just 1 or 2 carbs these days. And the flavors available now...Wow. I love all the fresh sausage at Sprouts. Good value and 2 carbs per really generous link. Trader Joe's have some fabulous options too. (I do think their sausages tend to shrink more in the cooking though.) I also love the Italian Turkey sausages at Aldi. Warehouse stores have some interesting finds too.
Many sausages are pre-cooked. What time savers those are. Often, I just cut one up into a salad and lunch is prepped and ready to go. The are great for dinners when you just don't want to think about anything else too. Or hot weather, when you don't want to heat up the oven.
If you want the low down on all my finds, you just have to have this month's Diner News. Remember, it is just $6 for 12 months and almost every recipe is new. That is why I am so busy and tired. I cook and experiment a lot for each edition. With no new cookbooks out, this is one of my main income streams. I promise these newsletters are worth the price. (I hear they are worth more)
