It's Her Crack

One of my girlfriends has me beat on the Christmas Season Decor Crack.  She is a certified fiend! LOL She recently participated in a Christmas home show and allowed me to photograph her home prior to the several hundred people that came through her home over the course of a the weekend.

Karen, already has a lovely home but when she decorates for Christmas she goes ALL OUT! Every common area of her home is beautifully decorated.  My pitiful pictures does NO justice to just how beautiful it is and I didn't even capture everything!

Sausage Onions Peppers

This is a total Weeknight Winner! This can be served over pasta or rice, stuffed inside a roll or eaten plain Jane out of the skillet on a plate. It takes more time to slice the vegetables!

What you need:
  • 1-2 Tbl olive oil
  • Medium onion, slice
  • Medium bell pepper, sliced
  • Tsp EACH, thyme, oregano, dill (or any herb combination you like)
  • 1lb of your favorite smoked sausage, cut into 1/2 inch slices (I use a skinless brand)

What to do:
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat place olive oil, onions and peppers. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to brown up a bit
  • Add herbs to onions and peppers and stir to coat
  • Add sausage and cook for another 10 minutes or until sausage are browned and cooked through
