The movie we ended up seeing was The Ugly Truth with Kathryn Heigl. I LOVED it ~ so funny and there were parts of it that has us laughing so hard we had tears in our eyes. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a hilarious romantic comedy. After the movie we headed to Barnes and Nobles to check out the travel section 🙂
I knew exactly what I wanted to make for dinner and it involved a ton of fresh farmer’s market veggies from this morning, Trader Joe’s Chicken Apple Sausage (made with Maple Syrup!) and whole wheat linguine. This was so fast and easy to make I cooked everything up while the noodles boiled.
1 package Trader Joe’s Chicken Apple Sausage, browned in 2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Remove it from the pan and sauté the following veggies:
2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 sweet onion, sliced
1 large or 2 medium cloves garlic
4 small colored sweet bell peppers, sliced
2 cups sliced mushrooms
Season with sea salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes
Remove from heat and stir in 2-3 small sliced heirloom tomatoes and freshly chopped basil.
I served mine over 1 c Whole Wheat Linguine with a sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan cheese.
I LOVE these sausages and an entire sausage is only 3 Weight Watcher Points. They really gave this dish a nice sweet, savory taste with a little kick of spice from the crush red pepper flakes.
I am off to read my book, relax and maybe have a bowl of Breyer’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream with whipped cream & fruit. I’ll update with a picture if I do 🙂
Tomorrow morning we are heading up to Lake Tahoe for some hiking, biking, a picnic lunch, gambling and fun ~ yeah! I am not sure that I’ll post before we go, but, I’ll be sure to give you all a full recap when we get back.
Have a fantastic Sunday all ~ I’ll see you on Monday night or sooner if I get the chance.
