Sausage Sizzle & Thankful Thursday

So, last night I decided to keep it simple and go with an easy, favorite for dinner. SAUSAGES. Pork sausages, to be more specific. Since coming to Australia, "Sausage Sizzle" has been a phrase I've become very accustomed to hearing. On the weekend you are bound to run into 5 to 10 "Sausage Sizzles", whether you are at the local grocery store or even a hardware shop...

I love a heap of caramelized onion on top of my sausages and for tonights dinner I even decided to add some sauteed bell pepper. 

I cooked my sausages on our George Forman, so I could get those nice grill marks but more importantly its a healthier way of cooking them. All of the fat just rolls off and leaves you with a perfectly cooked meal. 

Luckily, we had some leftovers! So I sliced open some buns, tucked in the sausages and wrapped them in foil for his lunch. I also put some bell pepper and onion in a plastic container, and some sauces in a zip lock bag. 


This week has been an emotional one. We scrambled the weekend before gathering the piles of information we needed in order for me to get my residency here in Australia. There was soooo much that needed to be done in a very short time! I only had a few days before I would have to leave the country. Even on the Monday of my immigration appointment we were scrambling to get documents certified and all that...

Luckily, we got everything done! And I got granted my bridging visa! So I'm on the road to residency here in Australia and most importantly I get to stay with my love. Ever since we got my bridging we have been sleeping very well, haha. 

The stress had kept us tossing and turning all night. Since it was granted we have been getting coma-like sleep, which I am also thankful for. We had a few drinks the night after the grant to celebrate and are planning a romantic getaway when I get my residency! So, I'm thankful for a lot this week.

What are you thankful for this week? What sides do you think compliment sausages? Share your recipes! 

Oh, and I'm also thankful for BatDad..
