Happy Monday! If you are like me, you are starting to think of what will be for dinner this week. We are on a budget as a one income family and it’s always a challenge to find recipes that are kid friendly, inexpensive, and quick to prepare. My go-to meat is Hillshire Farm smoked sausage. Everyone loves it, it’s extremely affordable to stock up on, and it seems like there are a million ways to prepare smoked sausage recipes. I picked up a few packages from Kroger (near the lunch meat). Between 3/30-4/19/16 you can pick up 2 Hillshire Farm sausages for only $5 while supplies last. Today, I wanted to share THREE of my favorite recipes! (For more Hillshire Farm recipes, click HERE.)

Disclaimer: I am NOT a food blogger. I will not be telling you to use unicorn tears or salt from the dead sea or an herb you have never heard of. I want to give you the “bones” of a recipe and encourage you to jazz it up however you like! Sometimes, when I am looking up a recipe, I have to skim it for the core ingredients because there are so many other suggested spices etc. With that said, my recipes might look pretty basic, but I encourage you to play around with spices, garnishes, and whatever else you can think of!
