I use to do a really yum sausage paella (well I thought it was nice ) but like London I have forgotten exactly what was in it, the recipe was from a recipes plus magazine, I know it had turmeric, cumin and paprika, rice obviously and a tin of tomatoes, onion, capsicum and some stock.
I just found the magazine (from 2009)! I'll put the recipe here just in case
It actually says to use 550g of chicken thigh and two thick beef sausages but I won't mix meats so only ever made it using whatever sausages I had (usually about 5-6), plus the notes say you can omit chicken and use extra sausages. So on top of your meat you need;
1 red capsicum
2 gloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
400g can tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
3/4 frozen peas
1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves (I never added that lol)
Cut sausages into slices.
Fry onion, capsicum and garlic for 2-3 mins or until soft.
Add cumin, turmeric, rice, tomatoes and stock to frying pan, stir well until combined. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until rice is tender.
Remove lid/covering. Stir in peas and sausage. Cook a further 1-2 minutes or until heated. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

I make a yummy quick casserole from leftover bbq sausages (and all the other random meats that were cooked too). Brown one sliced onion in a large pot, dice all the meat and add to pot. Cook until warm, while stirring so it doesn't stick. Add continental "shepherds pie" flavour sachet with about 1 cup water. Cover and simmer for about 20 mins. Serve topped with mashed potato and a squirt of tomato sauce. One of my hubby's faves

My kids love pasta with Kraft cheese spread mixed in not very nutritional but quick easy and no fighting at dinner time with ds to eat his veg.
Special pizza. Son loves them
Pineapple (gives a sweet taste)
And any other veggies around in the fridge/freezer u really can use anything.
Blend it all up to make a paste
I usually then put it on some English muffins and add ham and cheese. Done and best thing is once paste is made then kids can help make own dinner.
I have frozen the paste for up to 2 months and still good. I have also put it over pasta.
