So let me just say that my Saturday was not as productive as I would have liked it to be!
After sleeping in (we won’t discuss what time I got up!) I had two weeks worth of laundry to tackle! Yikes!
Later in the evening, it was time to start prepping dinner. I was too lazy to hit the grocery store on Saturday for the handful of things I had forgotten — so that meant it was a mad dash to hit the store and get things finished up on Sunday before work.
BUT I GOT IT ALL DONE. PHEW.
On Sunday morning, I raced to the store and picked up the things I needed — and then raced home and cooked while getting ready for work.
The meal that hadn’t yet been started was the main dish for this work week’s lunch!
I was planning on making a recipe I have made many times before — sausage with shaved Brussels Sprouts and cheese.
I got some delicious homemade spicy chorizo from the grocery store, and cut it from its casing on Saturday night.
Then, on Sunday morning at the grocery store, I picked up some broccoli slaw, since the store was OUT of shaved Brussels Sprouts SIGH.
I was in a hurry, so I didn’t get pictures 😦 But let’s just pretend that the sausage looked like THIS. It was almost red in color.
When the meat was cooked and the broccoli slaw was tender, I added a small container of jalapeno flavored cream cheese and sour cream — turned down the heat and let everything simmer for a bit — stirring frequently.
The picture DOES NOT do this justice!
Very different from my normal sausage and Brussels — but the same kind of idea, with a new twist! And SO, so good!
Not ENTIRELY Paleo, because it does include dairy (cream cheese and sour cream) — BUT it is low-carb and healthy!
A nice, spicy first meal of the day! My work week EATS — below!
