I know. This is for giving recipes, but I'm stuck and hoping for help. (by 3/23/2016 -- 4 PM EDT. At least I'm giving a day's notice this time. lol)

I am not the cook in our household but have been doing the cooking for the last four months. I'm bored with my choices already, but bought some mild Italian sausage yesterday and need to do something with it. I keep going for tomato sauce and pasta. Argh! Now bored with it.

I also can cook Polish, but have Polish sausage and pasta too in the freezer. (At least not with tomato sauce.)

I don't like spicy, hot, or beans. So... got any ideas what I can do with this sausage? I need a starch and veggies, but other than that... I'm stuck.

I'm not the cook usually. Hubby taught me how to make vegetable stock, but that requires carrots, onions and celery. Unless I use the tops for the celery, none of those are leafy. Got any hints what a leafy vegetable is? (I can think on spinach, but that's the vegetable that sucks up flavors, instead of gives any. lol)

I'm really, really rusty at cooking.


(I'm the Proverbs 32 woman. Everything the Proverbs 31 woman is, I'm pretty much not. lol)

Leafy greens....my favorites for soups are watercress, chard, and spinach. But you can also use collards, mustard greens, radish greens, whatever you like

I don't have a specific recipe offhand

After you've seasoned and cooked your meatballs, I would add in leeks, onions, garlic, any additional veggies, and your greens and cook them down. Then deglaze with a little bit of white wine or vinegar, add your broth and let simmer for an hour or so.

Ohhh, that spot in the produce aisle of the supermarket isn't just spinach? I didn't think people ate that much fresh spinach, but I've never been a leafy-vegetable person to look that hard. Next time I go, I'll have to see what those big leaves are. lol

Thanks.

When you run out of sausage there's a recipe that I made up which tastes good to me. I haven't served it to anyone else though, but it is pretty quick and feeds about four. You will need a couple of cans of chicken breast. You know, that shredded stuff. Some soy sauce, Duc sauce, and partial packages of broccoli and one of the mixture of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots or whatever is in one of those packages. You could also use fresh veggies, but I don't like to take the take the time to prepare those. This is similar to a Chinese dish so a wok should probably be used, but I use a 10 inch fry pan. I suppose you could use hamburg, but then you would lose that Chinese flavor and look. I haven't tried hamburg, but if I get a little goofy in the future I think I will give it a shot. Don't worry too much about what's in something, as long as everyone likes it separately, and even then it might work, I don't like celery, but soups are missing something in the flavor without it. As long as it is edible, you're an OK cook and if it tastes good then you are a great cook. LOL

I cooked the veggies in the microwave first because the chicken is already cooked. Put a little water in the bottom of the pan, eighth inch or so and put whatever the amount of chicken you will want in first to get it warmed up. Add the vegetables in any amount that you prefer. It isn't fussy about the amount of either the chicken or the veggies. Then I just dumped in the soy sauce and the duc sauce until I thought it would taste good, but I suspect I put in about a tablespoon of soy sauce and an eighth cup of duc sauce, and heated the stuff. You can taste it as it's heating and add more of whatever you think might make it taste better. I didn't use any salt, but if you are partial to it you can. If you don't like the Chinese flavor of soy sauce, I suppose you could leave it out, but it's up to you and there are different ways to adjust the flavor you can experiment with. Good luck.
