#DairyFree Blueberry Cobbler & Sausages w/Pepper

So, are you all ready to hear about our Friday night dinner this week?  Okay, okay - as Alena & Mia Rose say - I get it let me move on.

Yesterday was a Teacher Planning Day at Portland Public School and you know what that means?  Yes, no school...Alena went on an urban hike with our friend Martin and his son Sebastian.  They hiked up to the zoo, stopped at the archery range and had a fantastic time.  Yes, they hiked over three miles and most of it uphill at Washington Park.  Mia Rose on the other hand spent the day with me.  Taking a mid morning bath, stopping at the grocery store, and some playground fun...

And dinner...yes, this is what you wanted to know...Sausages & Peppers the recipe is from my dear friend Larissa {and Martin's wife}.  It is such a good, easy, no fuzz, and fun dish.  Yummy!!!  I followed Larissa's recipe and added two more peppers.  For baking - as the sausages did not brown up as much - I ended up increasing the heat on my oven to 375F.  I should have waited for the sausages to become all brown before topping them with the veggies...oh well next time.  It was delicious. Perfect dish for a Friday night :) - Again, not a great picture...

Here take a look at Ron and Martin....{yes, the girlies ate these too}

Since this was such a easy dish, I decided that we had to have dessert.  Remember when we went blueberry picking last summer?  Well, we still have a lot of those delicious Oregon blueberries in our freezer.  So, time to make a #DairyFree Blueberry Cobbler
