Sausage and green bean skillet

We had yet ANOTHER delay at school today. This time, for extreme cold. One of these days, I’m going to get my snow in the winter. We’ve had “not cold enough” and “not enough moisture” so I’m hoping for a great combo of both to make snow. Until then..I’m still eating leftovers out of the freezer. I have been in a weird funk lately where all I do is workout and sleep. I’m not hungry lately AT ALL.

But tonight, I cooked.

File this one under quick and easy. I often throw things in a pan and plan for the best, beware the worst. This one was too easy.

I just recently found your site and I love it! I've made this dish two times so far and my husband has asked for it to be "put in the rotation"! It's delicious and fail proof. Thank you for sharing!
