I had one of those hang on the door and stare into the fridge moments the other night!
I had some all natural Bratwurst in the freezer and a jar of apple sauerkraut that really sounded yummy.
My Grandmother used to always fry potatoes for me when I would come to visit and I was hungry for that . . . so dinner was in the works!
German sausage (bratwurst) smoothered in fryed onions, on a bed of sweet red cabbage and apples, accompanied with fried potatoes and sugar snap peas drizzled with homemade ranch.
I highly recommend for a meal in under 40 minutes!
I put a wee bit of water in the bottom of a heavy cast iron pan
added the brats and boiled them for a while. Once the brats were cooked through I drained the water added about a tablespoon of butter to the pan and pan fried them with some thinly sliced onion. ( I only had a red onion, I would have preferred a white or yellow onion) When the onions were just about clear and cooked pretty well, I grated some fresh garlic into the brats and onions.
The house smelled so yummy!
The fried potatoes are a family recipe . . . I’ll save that for another post.
I LOVE sugar snap peas, mmmm better than carrots and ranch in my opinion! The girls love them too.
It is so rewarding when a spur of the moment supper turns out good!
P.S. Isn’t it interesting that in the midwest, dinner is called supper . . .
I grew up on the west coast in California, a beach lovin’ simple food girl. I ate fresh avocados and oranges and we called meal times breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I didn’t know what time of day supper was!
When we first moved to the midwest and someone would invite us for “dinner” I made sure to clarify that what they really meant was the “noon” meal!
Supper time is “quitin’ time”, the end of the day, the evening meal!
