We arrived home early this morning after an overnight flight from Singapore. I had pretty well cleared out the refrigerator before we left and shopping was the last thing on my mind this morning. The house-sitters had bought fresh milk for us and GMan made a loaf of bread.
This afternoon I began to think about what we might have for dinner and I really was not in the right frame of mind to go grocery shopping shopping so I decided to make do with what we had on hand. There were sausages in the freezer as well as some pre-cooked rice and diced raw onion.
I grilled the sausages and then sliced them up. Next, I fried the onion in the pan, added 1/4 teaspoon of chilli powder, sliced celery (from the garden) and a broccoli stalk which was also lurking in the freezer. A can of tomatoes and 5 olives which was all that was left from a jar in the frig completed the sauce. I added the thawed rice and sliced sausages and heated the mixture before putting it in a Pyrex dish.
I topped it with a mixture of grated cheddar and parmesan cheese mixed with flaxseed meal and ground pepitas and popped it under the grill for a few minutes.
Since we had not bought any fruit and vegetables today, I served it with a generous helping of kale from the garden which I chopped and stir-fried with a sprinkle of chilli powder and squeeze of lime juice.
GMan and I ate one half of this tonight and the other half has been divided into 3 serves for my lunches this week.
