OK, this is officially creepy

I think I have now become Naturally Good At Cooking(tm). Tonight I didn't have much in the house, so I asked J. to pick up some carrots and a white onion on the way home and I could try to replicate, on the fly, a recipe my mom made often in my childhood with sliced sausage and sauteed veggies (which I think usually included potatoes, but skipped those due to the diet etc.).

Once I started frying things up I realized I couldn't recall what spices Mom used. So I started winging it, figuring on textures and flavor combos. Mainly went with a general Italian blend (rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, chopped garlic) with some added paprika and a dash of white and red pepper, and sauteed the whole thing in reduced butter and red wine instead of vegetable oil. Sprinkled the top with fresh black pepper and shredded parmesan.

No offense to my Mom's original dish, but NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM. Think we're keeping this one as a staple recipe.
