Getting Excited Again

Do you have loose your craving for something? Like you plan a meal, and when it comes time to cook it, there is absolutely nothing that sounds appetizing about it anymore? Even if it is something you've good before, for some reason, at that moment in time, you would do anything not to eat it? That is exactly what happened to me last week.

I had a "regular" dish in our house on the menu, and when supper time rolled around, the thought of stepping into the kitchen and actually preparing it didn't exactly make me want to jump out of my recliner. So, I started thinking about what I could do to make it a bit more exciting. Why not add some spice? Not too much. Ya'll know how wimpy my tongue is, but enough to get my taste buds enthusiastic!

This comes together in almost no time, and while yes, you do need a bowl and a pan to make it, it's still pretty close to a one pot wonder, for those super busy nights we all seem to have too many of.

The amount of Cajun seasoning was just enough for us, some heat, but not too much. But if you are worried about it, start out with 1-2 tablespoons, and then taste it before adding more.

If you need a simple supper that doesn't taste simple, this needs to be on your menu soon. If you have a dish you've made forever, and need to get excited about it again, brainstorm and see what you can do!

Sausage, Potato & Pepper Bake
1 lb. polish sausage, sliced on a bias
2 green bell peppers, sliced
5 medium potatoes, cubed
1 (10 oz.) jar banana pepper slices, drained
3 TBS olive oil
3 TBS Cajun seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss well to coat. Transfer to a large, greased baking pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes until potatoes are tender.
