Ralph’s Tomato & Herb Sausages with Spanish Rice

“Chilly evenings call for warm comfort food! I love the Tomato and Herb sausages from Ralph’s Farm Market so much I paired them with my Spanish Rice recipe to make this one pot wonder. This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free and can be Vegan without the sausages or substituting with Ralph’s Vegan Field Roast Sausages. The best part? You can use up lots of leftover veggies, and even precook or use leftover rice to speed up the process.”
– Christine. B

1 package of Ralph’s Tomato and Herb Sausages
1 Tbsp butter (or vegan butter)
2 medium onions, chopped
1 cup diced cabbage
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 – 28 oz tin Italissima unpeeled diced tomatoes
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown sausages in a frying pan with a lid. Add the butter, onions, cabbage, peppers, garlic and saute. Add in the tomatoes and reduce until the veggies are soft. Stir in rice and spices. Remove from heat and let rest for 3 to 4 minutes.
Serve immediately & enjoy!

plastic put to good use

The other day we noticed this bag in the cart of a long time customer of ours.

At first glance I thought it was crocheted from yarn but when you actually feel this bag it is made from plastic bags….the plastic bags we USED TO HAVE at our old market years ago combined with some bags from other stores as well.

DID YOU KNOW: The bags at our till we have now are biodegradable so they wouldn’t suit this project. They’d disintegrate soon after making it.

Amaryllis Bulbs

Diane is here to tell you all about these beautiful Amaryllis Bulbs…the easiest flower to bloom!
❣️Needs no planting or watering⁠.⁠
❣️The waxed bulb holds all the stored energy and water it needs to grow and bloom. ⁠
❣️A coiled wire embedded at the base makes it freestanding: simply place it on any flat surface, set it in a clear vase, or nestle it among other holiday decorations…and wait for shoots to emerge. ⁠
