103 degrees… ahhh extreme heat, can’t say I missed ya 😉
But seriously, wow, some pretty crazy intense heat is hitting the east coast and Richmond is no exception these past few weeks!
But enough about the weather, let’s move on to the food 😛
Tonight’s dinner was a quick n’ easy inside feast consisting of some farmer’s market finds!
Italian Sausage & Peppers
Last weekend at the farmer’s market I picked up some local Italian sausage from my favorite pork guy.
And knowing my boyfriend & his love for Italian sausage & peppers I knew just what to do with them 🙂
- 2 local green peppers, sliced
- 1 onion, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- fresh basil
- fresh fennel
- 1 tblsp olive oil
First I browned the sausage over med-high heat until crisp on the outside.
Then I covered them with water + lid and let simmer until done cooking, about 15 minutes.
To assemble the veg I gave the onions & peppers a saute in the olive oil until gold & tender.
Seasoned w/ salt & pepper of course. I added in the garlic + fresh herbs towards the end.
Served in some hot dog buns w/ yellow mustard and voila!
I will be purchasing these again, they were delicious!!!!
To go alongside we had a side salad featuring another tomato from our garden – so fresh & right off the vine!
Plus one of the most gi-normous cucumbers evahhhhh haha 😉
We also have some cherry gold tomatoes, black olives, black pepper & oregano in there. Topped w/ our favorite dressing —> white balsamic + olive oil. Try it, you’ll be in love too 😛
Well after a 10 hour work day I’m beat. Time to go snuggle up with my 2 favorites 😀
Have a great night everyone!
