Everything but the Kitchen Sink

Some days you just have too much food. You’re CSA share was too big, you went a little crazy at the farmer’s market (guilty) or you’ve just been eating out a lot. So here you are on the verge of wasted food–the best time to get creative!

“Everything but the Kitchen Sink” is what I’ve decided to call my last minute, thrown together, don’t want to waste food meals. They tend to happen a lot. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m not the best planner when it comes to food. I’m easily drawn to beauty, especially beautiful food, and sometimes I might buy a little (a lot) too much with no idea how to use it.

Tonight’s meal? A take on Sausage and Peppers and then some. I buy sweet Italian sausage without casings from Lewis Waite Farm. Over time, I’ve learned it’s best for both parties. I save time not having to take the casing off, like I usually end up doing, and they save time not having to case it. I had a few peppers and some spring onions that I sliced. With that I threw in some summer squash leftover from last night and some kale and squash from my last Tribeca CSA share. Add a little left over gravy (red sauce) from the fridge, cook it all together in my handy dandy Dutch Oven and serve over rice. Voila! Perfect weekend dinner.
