Happy Hump Day!

Did you guys do anything fun over the weekend?   I competed in a crossfit competition with my youngest son on Saturday, we had a good time, and then cooked all day Sunday.

Saturday we lifted a bit of weight, but the workouts for the competition were more cardio than lifting heavy, which makes me happy.  We jumped rope, like a lot,  450 times.  We ran, we did pushups, situps and burpees.  We didn’t win, but that is okay, we appreciated the time together and with our other teammates from our gym.  You can tell my son was joking around while I was doing a bit of lifting.  Eating Healthy and Lifting weights | ahealthylifeforme.com

I am all about dinners that are made in one pot, which I think most of us who do dishes would agree is a wonderful thing.  While this dish may look fancy, it couldn’t be any more simple to prepare.  Preparation is nothing more than some dicing, measuring, pouring and stirring.  The hardest part may be waiting the 35 minutes to enjoy this dish.

I used andouille sausage which has a bit of a kick, but not too much, I am a bit of a spicy whimp and it is not too much for me.  However, if you are against all things spicy you can use a basic Mild Italian Sausage.

Are you a fan of spicy recipes or are you more a mild recipe kind of person? If you make this recipe, please let me know! Leave a comment below or take a photo and tag me on Instagram or Twitter with #ahealthylifeforme.
