Today’s Menu: Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas English Muffin and fried up a al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty. This makes the perfect Breakfast Sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 70 degrees and mostly sunny out today. I got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work. I also got out the chairs and table for the outdoor deck. Washed them down before putting them out. I also got my Garden Boxes out, I use these to grow my small garden. I filled them up 1/2 way with dirt and peat moss. I wanted to get the dirt in them to settle in the boxes before I get plants for them. I love warm weather! Dinner tonight I prepared Red Beans and Rice w/ Smoked Turkey Sausage and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

I had not made this in a while, long overdue! For the Red Beans and Rice I used a box of Zatarain’s Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice Mix. For the Sausage I used Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey and for the Garlic Loaf I used . Perfect Bread. To prepare it I’ll need; the box of the Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice Mix, 3 cups Water, Extra Light Olive Oil, and the Sausage. Mixed 3 cups of water, Rice Mix and 2 tbsp. of Light Olive Oil in 2-quart saucepan until it was well blended. Brought to a boil. Then reduced the heat to low and covered.

 

I got another skillet out as the Rice was cooking, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Sliced the Sausage into bite size slices and added them to the heated skillet until heated through. Removed them from the heat and set aside until needed.

 

 

Simmered the Rice for 25 minutes, until the tender. Stirred occasionally to prevent the Rice and Beans from sticking. With 4 minutes of cooking time left I added the Smoked Turkey Sausage. When done I removed the skillet from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. And done ready to serve! This makes one fantastic Meal! The Red Beans and Rice is Seasoned perfect. It made plenty of both the Red Beans and the Rice. And the Sausage works perfect with it. One Delicious and Hearty Dish!

 

Then I also baked a loaf of New York Bakery Garlic Loaf Bread.! I loved this hearty dish tonight, plenty leftover for a couple of lunches! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
