The Customizable Dinner Bowl

Thank you to everyone who offered up some tips and advice on dealing with stress. I know things could absolutely be worse, so I’m trying my best to keep a positive attitude about it all. Besides, I am going to VEGAS…that is definitely something to be excited about!! 😀

But, that doesn’t mean I still didn’t need one of these while prepping dinner. 😉



I was also lucky enough to have some company in the kitchen tonight…

Don’t worry Mom, everything will be ok!…Alright, now where’s my treats?”


A few minutes later, I turned around him to find him after none else than my SWAG BAG!! At least I know he’s got good taste!

C’mon Mom, just a little bite of the Glo Bar? No? How about some Pop Chips?”

Finally, a home cooked dinner! 😀 The main ingredient tonight was in the form of chicken sausage:


I picked up a package of this Bilinski’s Spinach & Feta chicken sausage a couple weeks ago, and it’s been waiting very patiently in the freezer for me.



To make the main course, I simply cooked up some Ronzoni Garden Delight pasta, while roasting some zucchini, yellow squash, & cauliflower in the oven. I mixed it all up with the sliced chicken sausage, a little roasted red pepper vinaigrette, and some fat-free Athenos feta.



It was amazingly delicious and super easy to make. The best part, is that’ it’s really totally customizable to what you like.

You need:

  • A pasta/grain choice (whole wheat pasta, veggie pasta, wheatberries, brown rice, etc.)
  • A protein choice (chicken sausage, chicken, tofu, shrimp, etc.)
  • Some veggie choices (roasted, grilled, sautéed, etc.)
  • A dressing/sauce (red sauce, vinaigrette, garlic & oil, creamy, etc.)
  • A cheese choice, if you want (feta, parmesan, goat, etc.)

The possibilities are virtually endless. No lengthy recipes required here…just go with what you’re craving!

Now if I could only figure out a way to make it with about half the amount of pots/pans/dishes I used… 😉

Question for the Night:

Do you have a favorite “go-to” dinner meal?
