Fast, Frugal, Healthy
That’s my mantra for weeknight dinners. I’d love to create more elaborate meals from scratch, but in reality I have about 20 minutes to assemble something and get it on the table.
This was a tasty combination we had last night. Normally the Al Fresco Chicken Sausage is $5.69 a package at Publix. They were on BOGO sale last week, and I had four $2/1 coupons making it $3.40 for 4 packages ($.85 each). Needless to say, there’s a lot of chicken sausage that needs to used up in the Blondie household.
Chicken Sausage, baby spinach, apple, blue cheese, honey, and reduced-fat crescent rolls
Sprinkle with salt and pepper, a dash of cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey
I tried every angle…there was really no way to make it look appealing at this stage.
[Insert your joke here]
Then roll ‘em up and put them on a baking sheet coated with Pam (the honey oozes and you might not get them off otherwise).
Bake at 425° for 15 minutes (I covered mine with foil about half way through because the tops were browning too fast)
Nothing fancy, they’re really just big pigs in a blanket. I know I've got some of you cringing at my use of canned dough, but in my world getting a fruit, veggie and lean protein into my husband and toddler = nutritional win!
Paired with a side salad, it was a crowd pleaser. The whole meal worked out to about 550 calories.
I still have 3 more packages of chicken sausage to use up. Anyone have some creative ideas beyond sausage and pepper subs or spaghetti topper?
And a big thanks to y’all for all your kind comments about getting a running group started. I have so many ideas swirling around in my head right now. I’ll keep you updated as it comes together. I hope to have something going by the end of the spring.
