Kielbasa + Potatoes


Kielbasa is one of those products that was introduced to me, by my husband  I am positive I never had it once growing up.  But turns out I really like it.

You can buy Kielbasa Gluten Free-- so of course that's a score.  I found this recipe via Life's Ambrosia and was excited to see that I could easily adapt it for my family.  It's quick and has a fantastic clean up, since you cook everything in one pan.

And I will mention that we cooked everything in coconut oil.  Since my husband has an intolerance to olives, that means no olive oil.  Darn it.  And since he's on a rotational diet, we have to always switch up which oils we do use.  It was because of this that I discovered coconut oil.  Have you ever used it?  It's fascinating   It tastes nothing like coconut, to me.  Put it in your hot pan and it melts in seconds.  I enjoy using it for cooking all the time.

Apparently there's a million uses for it-- like dry hair-- but it's so expensive I can't bring myself to use it for selfish pursuits-- like softer hair. 
 Again, this recipe is really simple.  Grab all your ingredients.

Chop 'em up and cook.

It seems to me that dad liked kielbasa and we had it a (very) few times. I think I like it but you know me, I can't bring myself to eat it anymore. Ew.

I cook with coconut all the time and really love it. It is a very healthy oil for you, so good work! (Much much better than veg. oil or canola oil.) I buy it at Costco where you can get an enormous container for (i think) about $20. Seems better than those teeny bottles (which I've also bought before). It has millions of benefits/uses.

Anywho.......yum! I imagine J LOVES this meal! :)
