Working with sausage all day will make you hungry for some for dinner!
1 whole onion, sliced
1 whole green pepper, roasted (plus a chunk that was floating around in your fridge)
homemade sausages of choice
unpictured Freekeh (from TJ's)
2 ears corn
We grilled everything except the freekeh, which goes into the microwave in a pouch for 90 seconds. I'd never had it before, but it's a drum wheat that looks very similiar to barley. It was really nutty and bold in flavor, so it held up nicely with the grilled foods and acted as a bed and side dish. My dad found it in TJ's by the couscous, and encouraged us to try it out!
The sausages were still juicy and flavorful on the inside, with a crunchy charred crunch on the outside.
The vegetables had roasted down with delicious smoky flavor, and the whole pepper steamed on the inside, creating a tender juicy texture. The corn, as always, was crisp and juicy and I'll be sad to see it go, it was a great season!
Johnny made little amuse bouches with a sausage slice, a piece of the green pepper, and a piece of onion.
We enjoyed the hearty, spicy dinner with a Chilean wine, bought at TJ's for around $5, as a perfect compliment.
