Have you ever had one of those long days where  you just can't wait to get home and get in the bed. I have those from time to time but with the little one here I can't quite do that. As a mommy I have to of course make sure she is taken care of and fed. When I have days like that I like to put together quick and easy meals. 

I learned that October 15 is International Cook with your kids day and I thought that was so sweet. Since my daughter is usually glued to my hip I thought it would be a great way to incorporate her into celebrating this day. I wanted this meal to be easy and healthy, I'm trying to teach my daughter (and myself) to eat a bit healthier and us cooking together has always been fun for us.

We put together a Rice, Sausage and Veggie Bowl. You'll need the following ingredients to put this together:

Beef Sausage
1LB Broccoli
1 Green Pepper
1 Red Pepper
1 pack Mushroom
2 TBS Olive Oil
1/2 TBS Minced Garlic
Seasonings (Black Pepper, Garlic Salt, Red Pepper Flakes, Italian Seasonings)

We first started by washing the veggies. My daughter loves doing this part. We dump all the veggies in a bowl and give them a good wash.

Next I prep my meat and veggies by cutting up the green peppers and beef sausage. We placed everything on our cutting board to have everything in one spot to get ready to cook.

In pan add the olive oil and minced garlic and heat over medium heat. Once the olive oil is hot add meat and veggies to pan. Add seasonings to taste. I generally sprinkle even layers of each seasoning on top and then stir well. Cover and let cook for about 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While that was cooking I helped my daughter with warming up the Uncle Ben's Ready Rice. Following the direction on the package we vented both side and popped the rice in the microwave for 90 seconds.

With the cool touch sides we were able to easily take it out of the microwave and pour it into a serving bowl. Once the mixture was done cooking we also added that to a serving bowl.

Lastly, I let my daughter fix our plates and we enjoyed! She was so proud of the meal that we cooked.
