"If you want a thing well done, do it yourself."

Yes, I know.. I have been doing a lot of food related posts lately. I am working on a somewhat big crafty project, but I won’t be able to share until the beginning of Feb. So for today, you get a recipe. ;) 

So.. I have two favorite meals, one Micheal makes (which I’ll have to see if he will share with you at a later date), and one I make.. Today I am sharing the one that I make, and that is Kielbasa with peppers, onions and tomatoes over rice. It is so, so, SO good! 

Ready for a pic? 

Sausage peppers and onions recipe with rice

Droooool.. :) 

Kielbasa and vegetables over rice 



Here is what you’ll need to make it: 
-1 package of Kielbasa (or smoked sausage) 
-1 onion 
-1 green bell pepper 
-1 tomato 
-1 bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s bbq sauce 
-1 package boil in bag rice 

Directions: 
1- Chop up kielbasa and cook in a small amount of oil until brown. 
2- Chop up vegetables and add in to pan with sausage. 
(NOTE: I usually cut the green pepper, add it in. Then cut the onion, add it in. And then do the tomato last. If you put the tomato in first, it tends to pretty much disappear on you. :)) 
3- Add in bbq sauce, just enough to coat. 
4- Cook your rice in seperate pot. 
5- When the vegetables are cooked to your liking, the dish is done! 
6- Put a “bed” of rice on plate(s) and top with sausage/vegetables. Enjoy!

I got the recipe for this from my Uncle Bob. Once while visiting my Uncle Bob and Aunt Carol in Indiana, my Uncle made this dish and I fell in love with it. I was probably in Middle school at the time so my Grandma would make this for me whenever I came to her house.. Then when I moved out on my own I started making it for myself, Micheal and the girls. It’s also a good dish to make if you’re having company over! 

Okay well I am wrapping this post up. We just put the girls to bed so I am going to go into my craft area and make something that I’ve been itching to make for a while now. I will be back soon to share it with you! :) 

Thanks so much for coming to my blog! Feel free to comment.. I love hearing from you!
