So I'm going to share bits of this and that.
First, for pure entertainment...
Another of my epic fails. My son went to buy this sausage that he said was amazing. Conecuh Sausage. I left it alone for a bit and, unused to the amount of fat (I usually do turkey sausage), it got just a BIT overdone. I mean, there's nothing quite as shocking as walking outside to check the grill and find flames shooting out!
If you try this wonderful sausage, don't leave it unattended! And don't cook longer than the time recommended. I don't think it's supposed to turn into ASHES.
Another of my odds and ends I thought I'd share is a trick for quick chicken and dumplings.
These frozen dumplings are so tasty. And simple to make. But they do take some time, so plan for about 45 minutes of cook time. I made them in chicken broth and tossed in the leftovers from a rotisserie chicken.
And here's the salad from the ACFW conference, the shot Mindy didn't get. I loved it! Oh, and just ignore the fact I had already started eating when I thought to take the photo. :)
So, I didn't have anything much to share today. I apologize. But at least we did have success with the homecoming dress!
