Hot-diggity-dawgs fresh off the grill just scream summer! And when those “hot dogs” come in the form of aidells Italian Style all-natural chicken sausage, that’s all the better!
Tonight’s dinner included grilled chicken sausage served on a fresh bun with sauerkraut, parnsip fries, ketchup and sweet pickles.
I made the parsnip fries by peeling and slicing several parnips before spraying them with cooking spray, sprinkling the fries with salt and pepper and roasting them in the oven at 420 degrees for 25 minutes, flipping them half way through.
These fries actually reminded me quite a bit of rutabaga fries!
After dinner, Ryan and I sat out back with Sadie to entertain her with several rounds of fetch.
We shared a couple of post-dinner treats like a bag of popcorn and an apple with peanut butter while enjoying the pre-rain breezes.
Eventually the rain arrived and we were forced inside.
We’re thinking of making tonight a movie night after we head out for a lil’ dessert. One strawberry milkshake with two straws, please! 😉
I’m really happy to be enjoying a relaxing night at home. I feel like our weekends have been jam-packed lately and I’m thrilled to have a weekend in Orlando to get some wedding related things done!
See ya in the mornin’!

Barbecuing is one of the best things about summer! I know I don’t feel it is truly summer until our first barbecue 🙂
Julie @ Pickley Pear says
The sausage looks fab, perfect summer meal! I have never bought a parsnip! Enjoy your evening 🙂
Amy @ Edible Amy says
Dinner looks yummmmy 🙂 I really want to try rutabaga or parsnip fries. They seem like a wonderful alternative to regular potato fries. Enjoy your relaxing night!

It´s raining here, too :/
Gotta love the apple+PB combo 🙂
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is says
It is raining here too! Hot, humid summer rain…love it.
You should try turnip fries! they taste slightly sweet and they get super crispy if you bake them in a high heat and then let them sit in the hot oven (turned OFF) for about 30 min.
mmm have you had al fresco chicken sausages? they are $1.50 off at publix right now!! 🙂
ha! i think we had the same Friday night meal!
These are absolutely amazing!
