Sometimes it's fun to plan elaborate meals, spend massive amounts of time searching the grocery aisles for the perfect ingredients, and work in the kitchen all afternoon and evening to prepare a special, fancy dinner.  Sometimes, it's not so fun.  Thankfully, there are ways to use what's in the fridge and still have a great dinner!  This is a great quick meal that can still be special.  I made it for my parents' 30th anniversary on Wednesday, and they loved it. 

Heat up the oven and heat some pre-cooked chicken sausage.  Heat some olive oil and garlic in a skillet or grill pan.

Chop some bell peppers and onions

and throw them in the pan.

Saute until tender, and add the hot sausage.

Slice a baguette and brush with olive oil.  Sprinkle generously with Parmesan cheese and garlic powder, and grind some black pepper on top.  Broil until the cheese it melted (not until the edges are as dark as mine, haha).


And to use up the rest of that baguette...cut it into cubes, toss with olive oil and plenty of garlic powder, and bake.  There are no set temps or times, but just keep an eye on them and you'll get some killer homemade croutons. :)

I started my weekend by getting my second ear piercings and eating a cupcake.  Happy Friday. :)

Enjoy the long weekend!
