For 2: Chicken Sausages

Dinner doesn’t always have to be complicated.  Sometimes it is a Monday and it is raining and you are tired and you don’t want to do any work and that’s totally fine.  That is how I felt last night, which is why we had these chicken sausages, they are fully cooked all you have to do is brown them on the grill for a minute, and they were delicious! 

 Whenever I use a store bought/prepared products I like to do something a little special to take away the “out of the box” taste, which is why I made caramelized onions to top them with.  Really you can’t get any easier than caramelized onions: melt some butter in a pan; add the onions and sprinkle with  salt, pepper, and cayenne (if you like it spicy) and cook over low to medium low for 20 to 30 minutes. 

I completed dinner with green beans and grilled tomatoes: seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper grilled for about 5 minutes and topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. 

Look at all the pretty colors on that plate!  So don’t be scared, use short cuts, but dress them up a little and you will be totally satisified with your dinner!  What are your "short cut meals"?  Do you do anything to change them up?  If you live in Atlanta are you also tired of the 2 days straight of rain?
Sincerely Loving Food,


  1. Is Easy Mac considered a short cut meal?? Ha ha-

  2. Hey - I wanted to respond to your comment on your blog but you don't have an email linked to your profile so I thought I'd come drop you a line in your comments.

    About The Hunger Games, I read the description at least 6 months ago and thought "No way." I don't like sci-fi. It just sounded weird. After reading countless reviews raving about the book, I finally gave in and ordered it from the library. I was hooked within 25 pages. It's a young adult book (like Twilight is) but it doesn't matter your age. It's a great story. Give it a try - I think you'll like it.
