Sausage and Rice Stuffing

Hands down, one of my favorite meals is sausage stuffing. There's just something about the mixture of sweetness from the cranberries with the saltiness of sausage and the crunchiness of pistachios that I love. After the first time I made it for Thanksgiving a few years ago, I put it into our regular meal rotation.

It's so easy to make. Brown a pound of sausage with 1/2 onion, 2 c spinach (or any other dark green you have on hand), 1/4 c cranberries, 1/4 c pistachios, 2-3 cloves garlic and some handfuls of chopped parsley. I don't really have a set amount of anything, so these are approximations. I just throw it all in until it looks good. Combine it with two cups cooked brown rice and bam! Amazing dinner. When I was planning my grocery trip this week, though, I realized that we haven't had it in forever. Oops!

So, I headed out to my local Schnucks to buy groceries, making sure I had the ingredients I need for my sausage stuffing on the list. Rice, check. Cranberries, check. Pistachios, check. Spinach, check. 

Schnucks is already one of the few grocery stores at which I shop, and I just love their deals. One of my favorites is their buy 10, get the 11th free that happens every few weeks. I almost always stock up on produce to chop and freeze for later. Having all those cut up peppers and onions in my freezer, ready to go, makes cooking dinner so much easier, especially during the week when we get home and we're all starving. I also love the fact that Schnucks has their own organic brand, Full Circle, with TONS on products throughout the store. It makes buying organic so much more affordable. 

 I even threw some of those peppers into my stuffing this week. It's so pretty!

Something I noticed on this trip was that I kept seeing little tags with Schnucks Savings Salute all over the place. I have seen it in the weekly ad before too, but never really paid much attention. I did now, however. 

Seriously. I saw this little guy everywhere!

Schnucks has lowered prices on tons of items throughout the store as a thank you to their customers, it's awesome. Really. I love being able to save money and feel like I'm not selling out to do so. Thank you Schnucks!

Oh, and I hope you enjoy the stuffing. We sure did for dinner last night!
