Home cooking can sometimes be a challenge, especially with busy schedules, and even more so on busy weeknights. This dinner recipe for Sausage with Grilled Mini Pepper and Zucchini Skewers has come to the rescue for me sooo many times, because it’s fast, easy to make and it uses simple ingredients.
But it doesn’t end there, because if I cook a little bit extra at dinner, I can also make the Sausage and Grilled Vegetable Flatbread Pizza, you see here, for lunch. That means I get a delicious pizza, packed with layers of flavour, but made in just a few minutes and with very little extra effort. How’s that for dealing with busy:)
Home cooking doesn’t get easier than this. Sausage with Grilled Mini Pepper and Zucchini Skewers – juicy, flavour packed sausage, grilled to perfection. Sweet zucchini and peppers with red onion, seasoned simply and grilled quickly on wooden skewers. All served on a bed of zesty lemon parmesan basmati rice.
When it comes to making lunches and snacks using leftovers, I find I have two approaches that I follow most often. The first approach is that I make dinner with lunch in mind, meaning I intentionally make extra, in order to have leftovers that I can then turn into lunches and snacks. The second approach is stretching little bits of leftovers, by combining them with other ingredients, to make enough for a lunch or snack.
Summer is awesome, it’s warm, school’s out, we get a break from our regular routines and schedules, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we aren’t still busy. The truth is, life with kids is busy. Even if we don’t have scheduled activities, kids are active and curious and well…busy. Quick, easy meals not only get us out of the hot kitchen, but they also keep our kids happy and fueled for all their, well… busyness.
