We are feeling better and starting to have an appetite. I'm cooking tonight and looking forward to it. I miss it when I don't cook. It makes me happy. Oh, and I can't recommend drinking wine when you are sick. Just saying.
Savory Sausage and Potato Skillet
2 T. olive oil or good oil of your choice
5 cups coarsely chopped small red potatoes, clean, skin on
15 oz package smoked beef sausage ring, sliced
1 scallion, finely chopped.
and 2 cloves of garlic, minced
8 oz can tomato sauce.
1/2 t. salt
2 t. Italian seasoning
Pinch of cayenne
Heat the oil to high in a good skillet. Add potatoes, moving them with a spoon as they cook for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water. Reduce heat to medium and add a lid. Stir every minute or so for a few more minutes until the potatoes are starting to soften. If this doesn't happen fast enough for you, cut them smaller next time.
Add the scallion, garlic Tomato sauce, and seasoning. Toss to combine. Reduce heat to a simmer with the lid on. Stir every couple minutes for 5 minutes total.
Once the potatoes are cooked, you are ready to serve.
By the way, if you are in the market for an oven/stove, I highly recommend looking into a warming drawer. I recently bought a stove with a warming drawer and it has changed everything. If we are not quite ready to eat, everything goes into the warming drawer until we are. No worries about cold food, or scorching the bottom of the pan. Move onto an other dish without worry for the first. Can't say enough.
Remember to get better.
