Confetti rice with cheddar smoked sausage, brussels sprouts with lemon pepper sauce in cup, stuffed egg, and apple slices.

The confetti rice was a new one--improvisation was necessary since what I'd planned to make involved ingredients that, it turned out, had been sitting in the fridge too long and had to be thrown out. It worked out fine, but was a little bland on its own--the sausage perked it right up. Since it's really easy, I'll give you the recipe even though it isn't the most impressive dish in the world.

1 cup rice
2 cups water (or whatever your rice cooker says)
Handful of baby carrots, sliced
1 rib of celery, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1-2 teaspoons concentrated chicken stock paste
1 cheddar smoked sausage link

Mix all but the sausage in a rice cooker; turn on. Cook sausage according to package directions (I did mine on the stove). When rice is done, slice sausage and mix. Viola! Serves 2-3 as a side. (If I'd had more than one sausage link, I would have used two or three, and it could have elevated to main dish status.)
