FB Foodie Friday – Something “more” dinner


I am calling this week’s dinner for 4 under $15, the “Something “more” Dinner” because it really only 4 ingredients to it, but it tastes like there is a whole lot more going on with it. Not to mention the fact that it is super easy to make, super quick to make and really very good for you. If all of these factors don’t make this meal something more, I have no idea what would do it.

Something More Dinner

So what does this dinner entail? Well, all you need is a cup of cooked rice, turkey sausage, fresh spinach, garlic and red pepper flakes if you like it hot. That’s it!! The total cost of the meal is $6 depending on how much your turkey sausage costs. For me, I just recently got in on sale and it was only $3.50. I found this recipe as I find most meals that I plan to make, on Pinterest and I am not sure what made me pin it because the picture was not all that appealing and neither is my picture below. It is just really difficult to make the meal look “appetizing” but it is SO yummy!!

In total, it took me about 20 minutes to make it and FB Hubby and FB Son really enjoyed it. In fact, FB Hubby got seconds, which is his “unofficial” signal to me that he liked something that I made. In case this is your first time visiting, FB Foodie Friday, my hubby is the predominant cook in our household and typically also writes a number of these recipes/stories because he makes them. Every now and then, I come up with something that everyone enjoys. The fact is, I actually like cooking, but sometimes just get too caught up in work to have the extra time to cook for the family, which is nice to get to split the cooking tasks with hubby. Anyway, I hope you try this and enjoy!
