Monday veg dinner

Vegetarian sausage seems to be dominating our menu lately. It’s so versatile! Last night we made polenta with spaghetti squash and sausages sauteed with peppers and onions.

The sausages come in a package from Costco. We used the apple ones for this recipe.

The recipe was from the New York Times, but Hubs altered it a bit. For one thing, he used vegetarian sausages from Costco.

Here are the main flavors, the peppers, onions and seasonings, including fennel seeds (to die for).

The polenta was flavored with bay leaf and fresh rosemary, plus sea salt. I see a few fennel seeds in there too, now that I look at it.

During the day, my hubs used the giant persimmons someone gave us and made a persimmon pudding cake. There shouldn’t be a slice taken out of it before a photo shoot, but we couldn’t stop ourselves. It is incredible.

Now that I look at it, I see that there is more than one slice taken out of the cake! Oh well, I’ll start my diet (again) today.

We have BJ’s Brew Pub red ale on tap at the moment.

Thanks for dropping by!
