I just finished dinner and thought I would dedicate my entry to an online friend. She is someone who I have known for a number of years now. While reading her blog, I found she created a dish that is the same as a Dutch farmer's dish that Jos and I really enjoy eating. Rhonda, I was thinking of you tonight as I stood in my kitchen!
This is my summer version of this dish...
Cut up potatoes and an onion and start frying in a pan while you pre-boil the fresh green beans. I added carrots to the dish this time since I have them already which are also cut up and boiled. The Dutch smoked sausage is placed in a pan of hot but not boiling water for 15 minutes and then cut into slices and halved. If your smoked sausage does not need to be prepared this way, you can cut up with sausage to add directly to the dish. Mix the vegetables and sausage to the potatoes when they have softened. The potatoes will need to cook for about 20 mintues. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
Once autumn arrives and Brussel sprouts are in season, I will change the green beans to sprouts. Enjoy!
I have received a couple of awards that I need to give away. Here is the first which is a new award from a new friend. Shari found my blog through another needlework blog and I am enjoying getting to know her now. Thank you Shari for passing this award on to me.
Here are the rules I received with the award:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of those you’ve nominated
Now, in keeping with thinking of my online friend Rhonda, I have decided to pass this award on to a couple of ladies who are bloggers from the group where I met Rhonda. They are ladies who value hearth and home. I have enjoyed getting to glimpse even more into their lives through their blogs.
Rhonda from A Home with a Smile
Joanne from Joyful Blessings
Susan from My Peaceful Valley
Tammy from Play for a Moment
Melanie from Mel at Home
I know that is only 5 but I wanted to share this with these blogging buddies.
