Again, no idea what’s for dinner at 5:47 PM. Fortunately, last time I was at Spolumbos I picked up a bunch of extra chicken-apple and turkey-cranberry sausages for emergencies such as these. A few frozen-solid sausages thaw fairly quickly in a bowl of warm water and take about 10 minutes on the barbecue. I know these are a little more well-done than they should be – I like them that way, but I skinned them a bit for W.
I had mixed up a batch of bean salad earlier in the week when feeling a little vegetable-depleted. A can of green beans, one of yellow, one of kidney beans, one of chick peas. A chunk of leftover purple onion and red pepper. The dressing: equal parts sugar and vinegar, simmered in a small pot on the stove until the sugar dissolves, and then the same amount of canola oil stirred in along with a squirt of mustard and a shake of celery seed.
This will keep well in the fridge for at least a week.
Oh how my Friday nights have changed over the past few years…
