Potato Kielbasa Skillet


I haven’t felt well all day, slept most of the day, apparently my body needed it.  Yes, I’m the one who usually cooks, and thankfully mom stepped in tonight! I love that the printed recipes have actually given her some confidence to cook.  Too bad she didn’t try it more when we were growing up. She pulled out the Kielbasa and started cooking without even having to ask! Woo hoo! She even went out to the garden and got the fresh herbs, didn’t expect that either.

Overall, this was pretty good. Easy to make, and has a little bit of everything.   I’ll be changing a few things next time, I think it would be pretty great spicy with some hot peppers and cayenne pepper.  But at least it will be something we make again, especially since we got a ton of kielbasa for $1.39 each a few weeks ago with coupons! Sorry no pictures, like I said I didn’t cook.  If we make it again I’ll add pix.  But you can see some on the original link here.
