Saucy Italian Link Sausages

8 (4 oz.) links fresh Italian sausage
26 oz. Marinara sauce
1-2 green, red or yellow bell peppers, seeded and sliced into strips
1 onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic

Brown sausage to avoid a lot of grease in this dish. Place everything in a slow cooker. Stir to coat everything in sauce. Cover, and cook on low for 6 hours. Serve on hoagie rolls, or over rice.

Note: You can saute the veggies in olive oil if you want. If you prefer the veggies more crisp, you can add them in the last hour of cooking.

To Serve: Sprinkle with Parmesan, Romano or Mozzarella cheese.

Greek Salad

5 cups salad greens
1/2 sliced cucumber
1 tomato, cut into bite sized pieces
2 Tbsp. sliced ripe olives

    I don’t know where else to post this, but I was frustrated and dismayed again this week as I watched the evening news. They were doing a story about how once school got back in session, those children that were dependant on the school hot lunch and breakfast programs, would be able to get nutritious meals again, as often their parents couldn’t provide the meals otherwise. Now, I am absolutely in favour of making sure that kids eat well, whether or not their parents make good decisions, but what annoyed me came next. They profiled one such school, and a mother went on and on about how grateful she was for the program, and how hard it has been to feed her 5 or 6 year old daughter without it, all summer. Then they showed the young girl playing in the school yard, and the mother taking her picture with an expensive smart phone. Am I the only one who has a problem with this? I know that some people need a simple cell phone for work or to conduct their daily lives, (especially since land lines are being phased out),, but this was no ordinary basic phone. It was a smart phone that costs between 700 and 800 dollars here, not counting data plans. I am in favour of feeding programs being coupled with required educational workshops for the parents. The topics would cover budgeting, financial priorities and nutritional education and the kind of things that are shared on this site. No personal finger pointing is necessary or testing would be involved…just information, but such workshops would be a condition for program participation. We can just give people one fish (and meal) at a time, or we can teach each other how to fish, and eat for a lifetime.

      If you read this site enough Mary Jane you will find that this is one of my personal pet peeves. People saying that they don’t know how they are going to feed their children but they have expensive cell phones, computers, electronic games I mean the list could go on. I once saw a woman on TV saying the same thing about how she barely could feed her kids from one week to the next and in the background in her kitchen was stacks of pop and bags of chips. What blows my mind even more are the news people and the people who work these help those in need programs think that this ok and report stories like this. They don’t even notice that these people have phones and expensive electronics because they think that there is nothing wrong with that. I’m not sure which is worse.
