With swim, gymnastics, horseback riding, dance and computer engineering classes our girls stay plenty busy after school. From the moment our girls walk in the door after school we have things planned so our weekdays are very busy. I often joke around and call myself the taxi mom, because in between picking up and dropping off one kiddo I’m back to pick up and drop off another. With our six year old being in dance 11 hours a week she has a lot of commitments in between dance, tumbling and gymnastics. My kids are extremely busy but they really enjoy what they do and I think as a parent I just want to support whatever it is that makes them happy. So I’m all across town and back home again so at the end of the day I like to make simple healthy meals that I know everyone will like. Especially come dinner time, because when our girls get home after their activities they are ready to eat!
Making a healthy, balanced meal does not have to be difficult if you have Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage. I can easily shop right at my local Kroger store and get everything I need for quick and healthy meals.Head to your local Kroger or Kroger banner store and pick up at least two (2) Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage ($3.40 each outside of promo, 2 for $5 during promo). You can get them now on promo.
One of meals our girls enjoy most is sausage and roasted peppers on rice, the sausage creates the perfect savory flavor to the rice and peppers. It’s a meal that cooks in less than 30 minutes and one that I know everyone will like.
Savory Rice & Smoked Sausage Bowl
- 1 package sliced Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage
- 1/2 onion roughly chopped
- 1 bell pepper
- 3/4 cup snap peas
- 1 and 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
Brown rice is such a simple base to any meals and you can do so many things with flavors. You can use your favorite rice for this recipe and you can easily add more or less rice depending on how many you are serving. I’m a big fan of simple meals and this is is super simple. Our kids really like their Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage a little crispy so I start out browning the sausage in a pan for 5 minutes until they have a little crisp. Then add your vegetables and finish cooking another 5-10 minutes on medium heat. This is almost a one skillet meal it’s that easy. Just serve on top of rice and you could even add some arugula and fresh spinach for extra vegetable and make it a loaded salad bowl. It’s easy and fresh and one of those easy weeknight meals I know I can rely on.
What are your favorite weeknight meals?
