Chicken Sausage Skillet Meal

November 17, 2014

We came home from our night out on Saturday night (okay, Sunday morning) at 1:00 am. Tucker had pooped in his crate and it was a mess. I spent the next hour giving him a bath and disinfecting the crate. FUN!! 

At 2:00 am, I crawled into bed. Mike was fast asleep. I’d love to tell you about how Mike helped me clean up the poop mess, but the last time this happened he did it all wrong and I let him know it, so this time, I just sent him to bed. I’m fairly certain he did it all wrong so he would never have to do it again, and it worked, so I gotta tell ya, the guy’s pretty damn smart.

I slept in until 10:30 am on Sunday!

After coffee and doggie cuddles, (I never thought I would actually love a dog unconditionally, but damn it, I do.) I watched the Chiefs win, I ate a really late and yummy Breakfast that included french fries, so brunch I guess, then I hit the grocery store, then I went to a 5:00 pm Yoga Stretch and Restore class. It was a nice and relaxing way to spend my rather lazy Sunday afternoon.

After groceries and Yoga, I came home and cooked dinner with these!



Chicken Sausage Skillet Meal 

I cut up the sausage into bite sized pieces and browned them it in the skillet. I set the sausage aside. I boiled 10 small potatoes for 15 minutes, drained them and sliced them. I drizzled Butter Flavored Olive Oil into the skillet and tossed in the sliced potatoes, 1 diced onion,1 diced zucchini and a large handful of shredded carrots. I seasoned them with Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt and cooked them until the onions were tender. Then I added the sausage and gave it a good stir.

I added two wedges of Light Creamy Swiss Laughing Cow Cheese and put a lid on for a few minutes.



They melted into a creamy finish for my quick and easy skillet meal!



Dinner was Delish! Mike thought so too! And if you remember, he’s really smart!
