Thursday’s Dinner: Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage with Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash

Sweet Italian Chicken Suasage 1

We decided to save the Smoked Apple Sausage for another day.

Happy Thursday everyone! We had numerous activities tonight, an extra houseguest, and a sick kiddo so I decided to change dinner plans at the last minute. Luckily I had just made a Trader Joe’s stop TODAY and had some things that needed barely any prep. This is real life and even when I am fully planned out for the week, life happens! I am excited to resume tomorrow with a wonderful vegetable lasagna recipe. Thanks for following all week long!
