Recipe: Oven trouble and a delicious unplanned meal

So let’s start with the oven trouble.  For the past few weeks, my oven has been randomly shutting off in the middle of cooking and I figured that it was just slowly breaking because it is a relatively old oven.

Well, I went to make dinner  a week or so ago and the oven wouldn’t turn on whatsoever.  I was frustrated but just ordered some pizza for dinner. My fiance went downstairs to check out the fuse box, it turns out that the fuse blew and it was arching so bad that it caught on fire (a very small fire.)  So safe to say, we need an entire new electrical panel.

Well the electrician came last week and unfortunately they need to give the city 48 hours notice for turning off the power to the house so they are coming on Monday to fix it.

So for the past week and until this monday, this is the equipment I’ve had to use for all our meals.


A food processor, electric frying pan and a hot plate and a huge need to do some grocery shopping. Challenge accepted.

What I decided was to combine all of the veggies left in my fridge plus a pack of italian sausages.

So I started off by cutting up some onions and olive oil and caramelizing them in the pan.



Then I added some sliced potatoes and added them to the pan with the onions.  I also added garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt.



Once they were almost cooked, I took it out of the pan and added more olive oil.

I then added the broccoli and cauliflower with the same spices as above.



Time for the peppers! Add more spices and olive oil.



Then add the carrots and the potato and onion mixture and leave for about 5 minutes with a lid.




The last step before we plate is to add the cabbage. Let it cook with all the other ingredients with a lid on until your sausages are ready.




All that’s left to do is plate and top with sausage. Then we are ready to eat!



It was so so good and pretty easy to make.  This is what happens when I get in the kitchen and have no idea what I am making.  Never be scared about trying new things.  Grab your favorite ingredients and combine them. Most of the time, it turns into something delicious.
