I get the feeling I could have a few shots of tequila with Michelle and she'd give me a ration of crap (shit) for not letting loose on my blog. In real life, I have a foul-foul mouth. Worse than a sailor. Worse that a ten cent whore. Michelle would then double dog dare me to sit down in front of a computer, drunk, and force me to write as my true self. Then there would be no more readers and my blog would die a slow gruesome death. I think I'll live vicariously through her blog. But anytime you are in town Michelle, I'll be more than happy to buy you a few drinks.
Sausage and Peppers Pasta: (inspired by this dish)
This dish is one of those use as much or as little as you want or need to feed your family. You know your family better than I do.
red, yellow, and green bell peppers, sliced. Do I really need to tell you to take out the seeds?
yellow onion, sliced into thin half circles
spicy Italian sausage
salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta according to directions and salt that water! Make it taste like the ocean.
Cook the Italian sausage over high heat and break into bite size pieces. When it is cooked all the way, take out the sausage and put into a bowl. DO NOT DRAIN THE PORK FAT! LEAVE IT IN THE PAN. I said, leave it!
Okay, turn down the heat to medium and throw the onions in the pan. Let them cook until they are golden brown. Low and slow for the onions, folks. When the onions are about done, add the peppers. Cook until the peppers are tender but not over done. Who wants to eat mush? Add the sausage back into the pan and add the done pasta. Give it a few tosses and dinner is done and so freaking fanflippingtastic. It's the shizzle fritz. Only two things on this blog have gotten the shizzle fritz stamp of approval and this is one of them.
Snozzberries. This recipe for wine marinated grapes I had read about and laughed because Michelle quoted Willy Wonka. 'The Snozzeberries taste like Snozzberries.' and the only thing I could think of was 'I have a blueberry for a daughter.' and 'You boil him up, I know you did' and 'Springtime the only ring a ding time, birds sing a ding a ling a ling. Sweet lovers love the spring.' and one more for good measure...
"Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker."
Which seems apropos in this case.
Back to the snozzberries. I wasn't going to make these but while buying some stuff at Cost Plus, to some of you it's called World Market, I ran into some old co-workers and they showed me a new wine that came in. It was called Sweet Pea Apple Wine. This wine is an apple flavored wine with natural peach flavors. Guess what? It's good, not at all wine cooler-y or overly sweet. For some reason this wine called out and said, 'buy me! and use me to make snozzberries.' I did and by jove, this was really good. Everyone liked it. I caught the kids sneaking these out of the freezer.
Michelle, when CPS comes after my ass for me letting my kids eat wine marinated grapes I'm going to blame it all on you.
P.S. Can you add a post script to a blog?
P.P.S. I was awarded an award, maybe I have had too many snozzberries, because that didn't come out right. I was given an award by Ms. Snooty Patooty AKA Snooty Primadonna for Just Plain Fun to Read. Are you sure this is what you has in mind when you were thinking I was fun to read? Snozzberries, movie quotes, kids eating wine soaked grapes, CPS, and questionable language. Yeah, that's right, you know I'm a fun blog to read. Thank You.
