Batten Down The Hatches!!

Here we go for another round of winter weather. This one looks like it could be bad because of all the sleet they are calling for. All of the critters are settled in their digs, fed and watered. Now I am getting ready to make a pot of beef veggie soup, do some light cleaning and wait for the storm. Hubby is headed out to work but has his doubts he will be gone for long.

We went to the grocery last night, the first time I had been able to get out since last weekends storm. I should have taken the camera so I could take pictures of the shelves. I’m lucky that no one out here in the country likes to buy organic..that way I could get milk and bread, otherwise, we would have had to do without. The poor shelves had been stripped. Thought while I was out I would get fixins for the Super Bowl..need to do that Sunday morning if we’re dug out by then.

Took a look at the Almanac yesterday. According to it, we will have a major winter event every weekend in February in our part of the country. Oh goodie!

Well I’ve taken up enough time yammering about the weather. Have a great day and stay warm and safe.



Super Bowl Food

Just found this recipe on one of the Blogs that I follow and wanted to share it with you. It sounds absolutely delicious and am planning to make it myself Sunday:



  • 1 lb. bacon
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cups herb stuffing mix
  • 1/2 lb. bulk, ground, hot Italian sausage, raw
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Melt butter and add water, heat to boiling, remove from heat. Stir in the stuffing mix; add the raw sausage; add eggs; mix thoroughly. Chill for 1 hour for easier handling.

Cut bacon slices in half. Shape sausage mixture into small balls. Wrap each ball in half slices of bacon, securing with toothpicks.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon-wrapped sausage balls on a wire rack on a cookie sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes, turning halfway. Serve with Mustard Dipping Sauce.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 2-6 drops Tabasco sauce, depending on how hot you want it
  • 1 med. clove garlic, peeled and crushed

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Chill and serve with Sausage Rolls.
