I'm a silly person and love a good chuckle! I believe I am a bit on the ditsy side but who's keeping score?! ha On a more serious note: I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul! And my husband and children (family) are the most important things in my life! Hope I can be a blessing to those of you willing to torture yourselves and read this blog! LOL

Silly blogspot has issues with comments. If you can't comment on my blog don't worry "YOU're not alone"!!! haha It's nothing personal or not that I know of. Because I can't comment either! BUT... If you choose the option: "Name/URL" and enter your name and if you have a website or blog you "can" but don't have to enter it. THEN you CAN comment. This is a just so you know. I don't wanting anyone going away without sharing their thoughts! Or thinking that we have something against them! We LOVE you! :)

This was dinner tonight. I don't have a name for it. I guess it's somewhere in the beans over rice category! LOL Mr. Guitar always cracks me up when he gets home and asks "is this something you made up?" And I always respond "what is that suppose to mean?" hahaha I have made some lousy "made up" concoctions in my day but this one I am working very closely on to perfect the way I like it to taste.

I used to just buy Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage and then realized that it's more of a grilled on a bun kind of sausage. I've tried almost every kind available trying to find that just right taste. I really like this brand I bought this time. "Connecuh" It has just the right amount of spice and so much flavor!! I made Jasmine Rice, MY FAVORITE!!

So basically this is Purple Hull Peas, Cut Green Beans and Connecuh Sausage. I placed the peas in the pot with water and boullion (chicken flaored). I use a skillet with a little Olive Oil to pan fry the Green Beans. The toss them in with the peas later. I had lightly grilled the sausage last night while I was grilling steak. I tend to do that when I grill to make the most of my charcoal use. haha Anyway, then I cut the sausage and add it to the pot. I cook it over low-medium heat until te peas are tender and the sausage flavor as entered all the vegetables. I use very little salt and some blended spices to season the green beans when I pan fry them. The sausage has so much flavor and spice you really don't need much more.

Mr. Guitar was happy with the outcome and so was I! ;)
