Cajun Sausage & Sun-dried Tomatoes Dish

I originally made this dish with pasta, but wanted to make it keto friendly! It turned out so yummy, you wouldn’t even know it was low carb.

More Planting on the Farm 🌺

We planted two azalea plants in the flower bed area in front of our back porch a few weeks ago and decided we needed to get more. Azaleas are native to our area and I love their blooms.
