some random things from today
In other news, I ordered some I Spy books for the boys to look at when they get bored in church and caved to the "buy one get one half off" sale on the Hunger Games books. Apparently these books are so popular they have a movie coming out based on them? I don't usually read the bestsellers while they are a big deal, but I was able to read a chapter online and it kept my attention so... you know what I did. Has anyone read them or have anything good or bad to say about them?
One more random thing. Supper tonight was "what can I make with sausage and rice?" Here you go: Make 2 cups of rice. While rice is cooking chop some onions and red and green bell peppers (about half a cup all together) and saute in butter for a few minutes. Add one can of crushed tomatoes, a can of drained red kidney beans and two links of sausage that have been diced/cubed. Season with creole seasoning OR seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder and garlic powder. Simmer for 5-10 minutes allowing flavors to develop and serve over rice. T said he really liked it, so it's hungry man approved! And it's budget friendly. Win-Win.
I'm off to bed now. Have a delightful evening everyone!
