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! ;)
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
