Week 23 Saturday (6/21/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:              Drop Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 374 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

The gravy is rich and creamy and full of flavor

I now understand the term drop biscuits - because you literally
drop the batter on the sheet and it makes a little mountain of a biscuit

Look at that pepper mixed in with that hot sausage. Mmmmmmmm1

         This is a first for me. I usually don’t like mixing certain foods like adding gravy to potatoes. I lived in the south, part time, for 10 years, so you would think that I had tried this breakfast – but I never tried this dish. I am a convert!  This was amazing. I did use the hot sausage to create this yumminess. Ree says to use either so I chose the hot as opposed to the mild sausage. Boy, was that a good choice. I love the kick it gives. I also loved the pepper, which made a huge difference.  This one is a definite keeper. 
Random Reflections

         Watch what you wish for because you may get more than you bargained for.  I had heard that statement a million times, not that I have any idea where it came from, but it is definitely true this week. I longed for rain because I had to water the flowers, but I got a lot more rain than we probably needed. I do have to say that with all of this rain the plants are hearty and green and beautiful.  Maybe there is a pot at the end of the rainbow.

Helpful Home Hints

         Here’s a tip that my Mom gave me about the laundry. I do not do a lot of large loads of laundry. My Mom told me to cut the dryer sheets in half because that it all that is really needed for a load of laundry. Just think, this is a fiscal tip because you really get twice the number of sheets for the price of one box. She was absolutely right. The half sheet has been sufficient to keep the static out of my loads. 
         My Mom’s advice is wonderful!  Way to go, Mom.
