Many moons ago
When I did my first Whole30, I discovered that throwing all the things into a bowl became the easiest, and actually, most delicious, way to eat a meal. It was even a great way to eat leftovers from different meals to create a new meal.
If you knew me growing up, and even into my twenties, you’d be shocked to hear this. And it’s not because I was a picky eater, or wouldn’t give anything a try.
But I know for a fact that anytime we had a potluck, a holiday, or a buffet, I was very good at compartmentalizing my food. You know, each of the 7 side dishes, the roll, the dessert, and maybe a meat item if they didn’t look like slime or a mystery casserole. Mine had a 1×1 space all of its own, not touching anything around it. Because GOD FORBID if the green beans touched the potato salad or ambrosia salad, I wasn’t eating it anymore. BTW, WTF is Ambrosia salad? In all of the recipe creating I have done, I have never thought about recreating the ambrosia salad.
I think I will now though.
Now that I think about it. Healthy Ambrosia Salad, in your next edition of Sweet Revel. I can see it now…my most popular post yet.
Yeah. Back to this Sausage Skillet
So in the spirit of keeping my children from being as damaged as possible, I am forcing them to eat as many jumbled up easy meals as possible. You know because 30 minute 1 skillet meals, are hard work, and they are just for them, not me. At all.
So, one very dark and stormy night, I was all alone in my house. All I had in the fridge was some Pederson’s Smoked Kielbasa Sausage, a couple of Russets, and a yellow squash or two. I thought, put my Sweet Revel Seasoning on that, and we should be hitting the jackpot! This seasoning, tied in with the spice from the sausage I use, it just the perfect amount of heat!
That is how I found the amazing combo that is my Spicy Summer Sausage Skillet! What is even better, this meal is completely Whole30 compliant with the brand of sausage I used. It can be Paleo if you sub sweet potatoes too.
