Ever since my 90-year old father came to live with us last spring, supper's been increasingly an adventure as his appetite becomes increasingly less adventurous. In recent weeks, he's asked for salads from an "American" garden (that means "familiar" vegetables versus a plea for locally grown garden vegetables) and "more meat and more potatoes". (And more cookies and more donuts and more ice cream and more pie, but then, that's a whole 'nother story.) Okay then, I'm on it!
This recipe from Lisa at the Homesick Texan is one of a handful of recipes that pleased all three of us at the table and went straight from cryptic notes to a 3x5 recipe card for easy access again and again. Lisa may consider this rustic, home-cooked skillet "Texan" but I swear, this one-skillet sausage supper has "Midwest" written all over it. The first time, any one of us, all products of the Midwest, might have downed an entire skillet on our own. It tasted that good.
