What to fix for dinner?

Aidell's chicken apple sausage from Costco comes to the rescue for the age old dilemma, "What's for dinner?" Think I should start documenting some of our meals, so I don't have to think of something new every evening! My meal plan or inspiration comes down to what is in the fridge today, quick to thaw from the freezer, or in reference to the scones below, what old dried fruit I discovered in the pantry cupboard! Last night it was aidell's, dinner candy really. A side of Bubbie's sauerkraut might make it more digestible, get those good enzymes going? The fluffy white side is steamed cauliflower, mashed with a potato masher with a good dollop of grass-fed butter, covered with a bit of vintage white cheddar and parmesan, and held in the oven. Local lettuce was at the co-op last week, and oh the greens are buttery soft. Red onion, celery, a hint of parmesan, lots of cold-pressed olive oil, a dash of Italian red wine balsamic, half a meyer lemon, and sea salt and pepper dress it.
White flour indulgence. I had found juice sweetened cranberries in the cupboard. They were pitifully old, like my saved candy from childhood. My mom will remember that! They were still little delectables with fresh orange zest, juice, and honey in the stand-by Williams-Sonoma scone recipe. Raw milk kefir and farm fresh egg yolk must negate white refined flour deficits, right? Anyway, they contributed to the love of eating.
