A Great Dinner & Lots of Leftovers

I'm heading off to Prince Edward Island in the morning and my Honey gets to stay behind. And naturally, being the good wifey that I am....he tells me all the time....I had to leave him some delicious treats and easy to do dinner (can you say - microwave leftovers?)

Tonight's dinner was a very local, very easy to prepare Italian Sausage, Potato & Mushroom Roast recipe that I happened to find in my latest cookbook...The Illustrated Quick Cook ...five minutes to throw it all together, 30-45 minutes in the oven and voila! Gave me time to organize and pack for my trip. The sausages are sweet fennel Italian sausages made for my local Italian Gourmet Market down the street. The potatoes, mushrooms, red onions and fresh rosemary were picked up at last week's trip to the farmers market.
Oh...did I mention the Chocolate Nut Brownies I whipped up for him to enjoy also came from the same book. What a find! These are so gooey you need to use a kind of brownies.

I'll be twittering about the Fall Flavours this weekend, so if you want to follow just search for #fallflavours on Twitter.

I made the Italian sausage recipe for dinner tonight - WOW was this good. I made a couple minor changes (added cherry tomatoes, used hot instead of sweet sausage) and cooked it longer - but we LOVED it. I wrote all about it on my blog and put in a plug for your cookbook, too!

Helene, it is delicious and thanks, I had a great time in PEI

Cyndi, glad you loved it and the great thing about this dish is you can make it many times and all a little different. Thanks for the plug.
