Planning ahead for Tuesday
Gathered pantry ingredients and defrosting 3 sweet Italian sausage links for Tuesday's family favorite: hamburger and macaroni, substituting the sausage for the pricier beef, especially as the sausage was purchased on marked down. Additional ingredients will be needed: spices, onion, celery, mushroom, peppers. Sides will be salad, canned green beans.
After removing the meat from the casings, I browned it and crumbled it before sauteeing the veggies with it.
Added the tomatoes, tomato sauce and spices, then refrigerated it fot Tues.
