Simple sauce

This morning was all about a bootcamp workout. It was very early, but my body was feeling great this morning and I totally kicked butt.

A winter meal to be enjoyed by a nice fire with a cup of herbal tea.

I was originally going to make tonight's dinner with lentils. That is until I googled the cooking instructions and realized it would take far too long to cook and I would have needed to start dinner earlier.

I substituted some quinoa instead and it only takes about 10 min. to cook.

I made a delicious dinner to top the quinoa once it was cooked. I sliced up some Tj's turkey polish sausage and sauteed it along with a diced red bell pepper. Once everything was slightly charred I added a few tablespoons of barbecue sauce and let it reduce down into a sauce. I then added some fire roasted salsa, garlic, and chili flakes. This was sooo good, especially when topped with a little spicy hummus. On the side was half a sliced pear, the most perfectly ripe pear that is.

It may be a very simple dinner, but it was a winner for sure.
