FIve Dollara Dinner: Sausages, sauted peppers, and Salad
Originally uploaded by LarimdaME
"Why sausages all the time?" I get asked. Because it's one of the cheapest meats you can get, and when you're on a $5 budget, $4 for meat just doesn't work. $2.50 for 6 sausages, $.40 for a mixed pepper, $1.25 for red leaf lettuce, $.60 for carrots, $.25 for small red onion.
Wash and chop 6-7 leaves of the lettuce. Thin slice and dice the red onion. Grate the carrot. Viola! Salad that easily feeds 2.
Slow cook sausages in pot over low heat, approx 30 minutes. Remove coked sausages and drain most of the oil. Rough chop the other onion half, the pepper, and maybe the carrot. Saute over medium heat. Add garlic to taste. Maybe some salt, although the sausage juices should have enough. Add back sausages after 10 minutes, saute until hungry.
Serve with rice, makes 2-3 servings.
