Dinner at home…


There’s something comforting about…

chopping up some fresh veggies

such as onion, celery, red peppers and mushrooms…




seasoning them with a little salt and pepper…


sautéing them in a hot pan with some olive oil…


adding some ground turkey italian sausage and browning it…


tossing in some minced garlic…


adding a splash of red wine, some red pepper flakes to taste, and two 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce

and letting it simmer for a few minutes while you boil a pound of whole grain linquini…


tossing it all with the drained linguini…

adding a generous handful of shredded parmesan cheese…

making a quick salad of mixed greens, diced pear, feta cheese, and vinaigrette…

setting the table…

and having the Hubs walk in the door at the exact minute it’s all ready.

I love dinner at home nights.

  10. Looks great! Isn't it a most satisfying and wonderful feeling to have dinner at home for your husband when he walks in?
    The other day, mine told me he "virtually skips out of the office", in anticipation of arriving home to me, being welcomed by an inviting home and good dinner.
    That's the blessing of this calling.

  11. That's making me feel hungry, but how satisfying to have it all come together like that, right on time too.

  12. Looks incredible. I heart your blog.

  13. Elizabeth, that's one of the most tasty looking simple pleasures I've seen in a while. I agree. I so enjoy the motion of chopping veggies, putting things together in a pan ... lovely post.
