Wow, I can't believe how fast my weekend came and went!! I don't think my schedule was just a tad bit over-scheduled this past weekend.....house cleaning, trying out new recipes, book club, homework and finally getting to go to the pool again (monsoon has made it nearly impossible these last weeks). I finally got to watch the movie The Hunger Games, I loved the book MUCH better. Don't get me wrong the movie was good but it was missing so much from the book.
The only thing I didn't have time to squeeze in was this post!! But hey better now then never, right?
I want to share a recipe with you that I found while searching for recipes to add to my meal planning. It is such an easy and fast recipe to prep.
Here is the recipe I use:
Brats & Peppers
6 plain bratwurst, sliced (these are not flavored but you could probably use italian sausages too)
2 green bell peppers, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
4 tsp of minced garlic (or 4 cloves minced)
2 cans diced tomatoes, do not drain
1 TBS italian seasoning
2 TBS olive oil
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat.
If you are prepping this to freeze for later, divide the mixture into 2 freezer safe ziploc bags or containers. Then to serve just thaw for 30-45 minutes on the counter, this should be enough time to get the mixture out of your bag or container. Then dump into your slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.
If you are cooking right away, add the mixture to your slow cooker and set on low for 6 hours. If you cook all of the mixture at once you should have leftovers since we make two meals out of this recipe.
We love making this and eating it either with pasta or even just some slices of french bread.
