Day 165: Grilled Spolumbos Chicken & Apple Sausages and Bean Salad


Again, no idea what’s for dinner at 5:47 PM. Fortunately, last time I was at Spolumbos I picked up a bunch of extra chicken-apple and turkey-cranberry sausages for emergencies such as these. A few frozen-solid sausages thaw fairly quickly in a bowl of warm water and take about 10 minutes on the barbecue. I know these are a little more well-done than they should be – I like them that way, but I skinned them a bit for W.

I had mixed up a batch of bean salad earlier in the week when feeling a little vegetable-depleted. A can of green beans, one of yellow, one of kidney beans, one of chick peas. A chunk of leftover purple onion and red pepper. The dressing: equal parts sugar and vinegar, simmered in a small pot on the stove until the sugar dissolves, and then the same amount of canola oil stirred in along with a squirt of mustard and a shake of celery seed.

This will keep well in the fridge for at least a week.

Oh how my Friday nights have changed over the past few years…

    I hear you about the Friday nights. Remember tripping home at 2am in frippy clothes and too high heels and a couple glasses of wine on board?

    Love Spolumbo’s sausages! The chicken & apple is a fave w my kids(and me too heh)We also like Missing Link (at CFM) they make a HUGE variety of chicken sausages and also sell them sans casing if you prefer – although their sausages are bigger than Spolumbo’s so I find them best suited to a sausage/pepper/pasta dish or sliced up on side w eggs at breakfast(we’re partial to the maple version).
