Hubby in the Kitchen: Sausage & Pepper Supreme

Guess who's back?!?

Yes, tonight, Ryan resurrected Hubby in the Kitchen. He made his signature dish, Sausage & Pepper Supreme. You see, this is the dish he has made to impress most girls in his life. Unfortunately for him, I'm not most girls.

When he said he was going to cook for me the first time way back when (this was February 2007), I thought it was soooooo sweet. Then, I spotted these sausages, and I nearly went into convulsions. I texted my best friend, "OMG WEINER SAUSAGES!!!"


At the time, I was mostly a vegetarian. Not on purpose, but just because I don't really love meat. I swear to you I broke out in a sweat when I realized he was going to be cooking these for dinner. But I liked him SO MUCH that I ate them. They were... okay.   

However, now he knows how I am, so he also made me a side of tofu. :D

So, basically this meal consists of sausage, peppers, tomatoes, and onions (I pick out the onions)...

He made his own sauce using fresh tomatoes, tomato paste and water. It was fantastic!

Served over (brown) rice or pasta. He used rice tonight.

Today was a full-time work day. I worked AT LEAST 8 hours, plus I went to the grocery store. When I say I went to the grocery store that actually means I went to three grocery stores. One for produce, one for cheap yogurt and other assorted finds, and another for everything I can't get at those two places. It takes atleast 2 hours and that's hurrying.

So, I knew it would be a busy day, which is exactly why I started my day with Reeses Cup Oatmeal.

Actually, it's just oats made with water, 1/2 cup chocolate soy, and a dollop of creamy peanut butter. Not quite a Reeses Cup, but close.

For lunch, Ry Bread (as my mom calls him) and I split an organic veggie/cheese pizza and had (unpictured) salads.

Here's the pizza:

Oh, and while running errands, I hit up CVS to pick up a brace for my wrist. I think I'm developing carpal tunnel or arthritis. One of the two. It's become excrutiating to type. I'm 27 years old. I'm going to pretend like that doesn't make me want to throw myself on a chaise lounge in despair, because honestly I don't have the words for it right now. :(

How was your weekend?


  1. i like your reese's oats. i make mine with cocoa powder usually, plus some cacao nibs.

  2. I made baked oatmeal with peaches yesterday for breakfast & I was thinking that a peanutbutter vesion would be good too but now I am thinking maybe I need to make a peanutbutter/chocolate version too!

  3. Ooh I love sausage with peppers and onions! It's been a long time since I've had a sausage though :(

  4. Yum, I love sausages, we don't eat them often, but I do love them!

  5. Yikes, be careful with your hands and wrists. Double check your posture and placement of keyboard and such. Getting rid of bad habits can help a lot. I used to have trouble until I realized working on a laptop in bed is not ideal body posture.

  6. Yum! i like the reeses oats idea, gonna give it a try, thanks

  7. Do you have an ergonomic keyboard? I got one at work and I love it. Sometimes typing on the regular keyboard makes my wrists tired and hurt but I have no issues with the ergonomic keyboard. The one I have is from Microsoft...natural ergonomic I think...and is much less severe than others and so it was an easy switch.

  8. Why don't you invite me over for dinner? I need some homecooking! :( Oh well, I guess I'll just keep copying your recipes at home. lol


I heart comments!
