Southern Comfort

On our trip home to WV from FNCE Atlanta, we stopped at Farmers Markets in 3 states.  In South Carolina, I purchased the Stone Ground Grits and in Virginia, I purchased the yellow squash.  The red/green sweet pepper was retrieved from my back deck, still not frozen from our fall weather.  Here's how I put this together.

Maple Apple Turkey Sausage
(Serves 2)

1 Turkey Italian Sausage Link
1 tsp. Maple Syrup
1 small Red Apple, peeled and cored
1 Garlic Clove
Mix in food processor.  Shape into patties.  Grill in skillet sprayed with Pam.
Recipe inspired by USA Pears.   

Cheesy Grits with Vegetables
(Serves 2)

1 cup & 2 Tbsp. water
1/4 cup Stone Ground Grits, Yellow
Bring to a boil.  Reduce to simmer.  Cover and cook 15 minutes.  Stir in
1 Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese Stick, grated

1 Yellow Squash
1 Sweet Pepper, sliced and seeded
1/2 tsp. Thyme
1/4 cup Diced Tomatoes, canned without salt
Saute in skillet sprayed with Pam.  Heat with sausage.  

 Here are the 2 markets where the grits and zucchini were purchased:
We've been out of town for 5 days, so tomorrow I'll have to grocery shop.  This was a comforting meal to come home to!
