Monday night I was craving vegetables and I needed a meal that didn’t make much in the way of leftovers since the hubby was leaving on a business trip Tuesday morning. I had three brats in the freezer, begging to be used up so I picked up a few peppers, a bag of shredded cabbage, a container of tomatoes, and a cucumber. It was a weird combination, but in the end it all worked perfectly!
I made coleslaw with the cabbage and sautéed the peppers with some sliced onions. Next I made a quick salad of tomatoes and cucumbers with garlic, olive oil and vinegar. This was strictly for me, the hubby doesn’t like tomatoes. I heated up a small can of baked beans and ta-da, dinner in a flash!
I had a brat, the tomato salad and peppers, a big plate of mostly vegetables was exactly what I needed. The hubby was thrilled, he loved his dinner of beer, brats, coleslaw, and beans. As for me, I was smart enough to sleep in the guest bedroom and avoid the inevitable.
