A little help from the meat counter... Green Chile Chicken Sausage

Do you ever feel uninspired when it comes to your cooking? Do you ever want a meal that is crazy easy to make and tastes great? Me too. Hence, the above meal. Roasted Vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes and fresh made sausage from our local grocer. Just a trip to the grocery store and a little chopping is all the prep work. I have previously posted a recipe for sweet potatoes.

Let me make this note about the sausage. Beware of most sausages. They are full of spare meat parts, nitrates and tons of salt. Try to find a grocery store near you that makes their own sausage in house. I shop at our local Sunflower's Market where they make this delicious chicken sausage. They were able to tell me everything that went into it and they even have a glass window where I can see them processing the meat. Whole Foods and Earth Fare are two other options I have tried. The Chicken Apple Sausage is also great and perfect for breakfast. There are some prepackaged sausages that are okay, just make sure you read the label first and know what you are eating.
