Boil some potatoes with a slice of onion and a bay leaf or two.

While those are on, make a red sauce of onion, paprika, garlic, mushrooms, hot pepper, cinnamon, and a skosh of thyme. My latest red sauce trick is to do the onion/mushroom/etc part, then open a large can of whole tomatoes. Leave the top of the can on and just squeeze a bunch of the juice into your pan. Let that cook down. Once it's thickish, take the tomatoes and use your hands to squish them in, one by one. Then just let it simmer for awhile.

While the red sauce is simmering for awhile, set some spicy sausages into another pan to cook.

The potatoes should be done by now. To make your lactose-intolerant friends happy, mash them with fake sour cream and fake butter. (My god, the heaven of Earth Balance.) Add an egg to 2-3 cups of mashed potato and make some pancakes/croquettes. (The Joy of Cooking called them croquettes, but they were pretty pancakey at my house.) Fry them well.

To serve, do a nice artistic scatter of some washed spinach leaves on each plate. Set two hot potato cro-cakes onto the spinach. Set a sausage in the middle. (Omigod that sounds like it would look suggestive. It didn't, but next time I may have to make it more suggestive.) (And then serve it with vagina-hamentashen?) Cover the whole thing with a nice amount of red sauce.
