Post-Adventure Eats

Especially on the weekends when we can be outside with a family a lot more, I don’t spend a whole lot of time cooking.  I would much prefer to enjoy my husband and children and NOT the kitchen.  We have a family tradition of Mass and then pizza (usually homemade recipe on that another time) on most Saturday nights and then I seem to be always throwing something together for Sundays.  This is one of the easiest, mostly-healthy meals I have up my sleeve (coming from my own mom’s kitchen.  Thanks, Mom!)  The ingredients can be kept on hand easily in your pantry and freezer and enjoyed with post-adventure hot chocolate.

Yam-Pineapple-Kielbasa Casserole (I have no idea what it is really called)

*1 can pineapple chunks
*1 can yams (I try to get the ones in at least light syrup and do a lot of draining and rinsing)
*1 package Kielbasa (flavor up to you!)
*3 T. butter (or less per your preference) cut into small chunks
*3 T. brown sugar

Drain cans and pour into casserole dish.  Cut kielbasa into bite-size chunks and mix in with other ingredients.  Top with a light sprinkling of brown sugar and butter chucks.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until bubbly.

Not the most picturesque meal, but here is a snap shot anyway so you get the idea!

Amelia lives with her husband and two young boys (aged 2 and 4) in Yellowstone National Park. As a family, they believe that life is precious, short and should be lived to the fullest. That includes introducing a life of adventures for their boys in the form of skiing, hiking, biking, running, camping and lots of outdoor playing. Amelia writes at Tales of a Mountain Mama in an attempt to inspire others to get outside daily too with tips and tricks, stories and lots of gear reviews.
