Eating Single? Try this quick dish...

Inspired by hunger, I decided I needed to share my quick fix dinner from tonight. Pierogi...heard about these tasty dumplings? Mrs. T's Pierogis frequent my freezer, because they are a quick fix for hunger pangs. Of course, I had to add veggies and a little protein to complete the dish; thus, decided to go with bell peppers and Chipotle Chicken Sausage from Trader Joe's. YUM! To top it off, the meal pulled together in less than 10 minutes! So, grab a box of pierogis, a colorful bell pepper (onion, too if you like), and a lean (yes, lean) chicken sausage and let's begin...
6 pierogis (your choice of flavors--and yes they have vegetarian ones, but not vegan)
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 lean chicken sausage, sliced
1. In a soup pot, bring water to a boil.
2. While waiting for that, slice up your peppers and sausage
3. Heat a skillet to medium high heat, add your sausage and peppers, and heat
4. Boil pierogis for 7 minutes
5. Place 3 pierogis on a plate and 3 in a plastic container
6. Top half of the mixture on your plate and the other in your lunch container for tomorrow!
7. Pour yourself a glass of wine (4oz)
8. Sip, relax, and enjoy the taste of your meal (that took less than 10 minutes!)
If you prefer a vegetarian option, try a soy sausage in place of the chicken or use beans.
Eating alone doesn't have to be all about fast food, eating grilled cheese sandwiches, or a bowl of cereal. Keep your pantry and freezer stocked with quick fixes such as pierogis for a fast and fresh meal in minutes! Cheers to another great work day!
