    Default Dinner Last Night

    Yesterday I had one of thse clean out the frige dinners that worked out
    very well so I thought I would share it with everyone. I don't know my bg
    before the meal, but at 2 hours it was at 115, nicely within my
    parameters. I have tried to make asome fairly accurate measurments, but
    much is quite flexible.

    Eggplant, Sausage and Pepers
    Source, W. Baker's Refrigerator
    Number of Servings: 2-3

    1Tbs Olive oil to lightly cover bottom of pan
    1 medium-large onion sliced
    1 medium eggplant chunked in about 1" pieces
    1 green pepper, chunked
    2 Hot Italian beef sausages, defatted and chunked(Note)
    half a 26 oz jar of marinara sauce
    Garlic powder, Salt and Pepper to taste
    Thyme(or whatever herbs you have around fresh or dried) to taste
    water(could use wine) enough to rinse the sauce jar

    Heat oil in bottonof a covered pot. Add onion slices and saute lightly.
    Add garlic, salt and pepper, other vegetables and saute, then cover pot
    and let vegetables sweat for a few minutes. When vegetables are
    slightly softened, add defatted sauges and tomato sauce, water or wine and
    herbs. Cover and let simmer until vegetables are soft. Adjust herbs and
    seasonings and serve.

    Note_ To defat sausages, use a fork to poke holes in them and microwave,
    covered for 2-3 minutes(less if not frozen) there should be a pool of fat
    in the bottom of the thing you microed them in. Pour off fat and wipe
    sausages, then slice in wide chunky slices and they are ready to add.

    Note : This might go well as a sauce over rice or pasta for the
    non-diabetic in your family, in which case it should feed considerably
    more people that 2-3.

    Sounds good!

    I literally cleaned out the fridge and freezer yesterday, removing all
    the shelves, drawers, etc to do a complete scrub down for the first time
    in months.

    Discovered that I have way too many packages of Garrett County hot dogs
    (and one Applegate, which we had for the first and LAST time, BLEAH),
    kielbasa, and chorizo.

    Started with the hot dogs, will have to get some clams this week to
    steam with chorizo and herbs, and grill kielbasa at least once a week.

    We just had hot dogs, sauerkraut (always a jar in the fridge) and low
    carb wraps for dinner after all that work.

    Mine wasn't so good. I had some Texas Caviar from Costco. Forgot to eat
    the beets that I also bought. And some black olives.

    LOL Susan, I put Phil on that job since it's one of my least favorite, took
    him most of the day, but he did do a good job. I'm good to go for at least a
    year. :-)

    If nothing spills and seeps, so am I, with only regular wipe downs of
    shelves and door bins in between.

    Didn't take that long, once I figured out how to put the shelf
    structures back together. :-)

    Sounds real good, Wendy. I'd use the sausage oil instead of olive oil for
    sauteeing.
