Sorry for the lapse in posting! Things are a bit crazy here at the Cheater Bites kitchen as we are in a time of transition. I do have some posts coming for you that will be great, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I found a great chicken sausage that is really delicious and feel that it is necessary for me to share. Now I am not a huge fan of sausage, unless it is the super greasy and fattening breakfast variety, preferably covered with syrup. But I enjoy a good chicken sausage from time to time as a savory option for meals.
Al Fresco’s Roasted Pepper & Asiago variety is delish. It runs 140 calories, 8 grams of fat and a whopping 15 grams of protein for one link! I bought it at Harris Teeter for a fast and easy weeknight meal and I am definitely a fan.
Another GREAT find for your pantry/fridge is Lutenica Red Pepper Spread. Lutenica is a roasted vegetable spread common in Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia. It’s made of roasted red peppers, tomatoes and roasted fefferoni peppers (think hot chile pepper Eastern Mediterranean style) and has an absolutely mouth-watering aroma and flavor. This 19 oz jar of yummy and tangy pepper spread runs about $5.25 at your specialty grocery stores (or online) and is a great addition to your stash of goodies. It is a great accompaniment to sausage, steak, pork, even spread on yummy warm bread…the possibilities are really endless for it! Of course Mama Cheater Bite introduced me to this, not exactly sure where she found it, but I’m passing on the advice to you to run out and get a jar!
Tonight I just threw two links (one for tomorrow’s lunch!) in my little sauce pan with a spritz of Pam for 7 minutes. I served it with the Lutenica spread and also whipped up my favorite recipe of couscous! Nice easy meal to eat while I pack up my kitchen!
T minus 3 days until I must have the apartment all packed up!! Yikes!
