Hearty Turkey Sausage And Tomato Macaroni

There are days when I forget to plan dinner.  I end up digging through my freezer trying to decide what I can whip up in a hurry. You know, like a half hour ago it should have been on the table?  Today was one of those days and the only thing that I had was a one pound chub of turkey sausage that would fit the bill.  It made me think of before there was kitchen microwaves that you could quickly thaw out things in.  In those days I would have put the package in a bowl of hot water so I could get the wrapper off.  Then put the frozen ground meat in a skillet with a little water to steam it apart. Now it is easy to just defrost it in the microwave.

    We all have those days! You got dinner cooked though. Good for you for not ordering out or going out to eat. That is what I have to fight against.

      We get to eat out on special occasions. No money in the budget for that, other wise it is pan cakes. Thanks for stopping in on a rainy night.
