So I found this fun little meme I thought would be great to add so people get to know me a little better (and discover my strange little quirks). Meet Me On Monday is hosted by Acting Balanced where 5 questions are posted each week for us to answer about ourselves and share with all of our readers.

So this week we are sharing some of our favorite recipes . . .
Well I am not much of a cook but I have a few recipes that I love, and I probably shouldn't share my favorite recipe with you but I am going to anyway. 
Biscuits and Gravy
1 lb. Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage (ground, not patties)
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
Skim Milk
1 Can of Pillsbury Biscuits (I use original but any of them works)
Preheat oven and follow directions for biscuits on can.  In the mean time brown sausage in pan.  Once browned and cooked through, drain and return to burner.  Sprinkle sausage with flour, only a tablespoon or so, just enough to coat sausage. Pour cream of mushroom soup over sausage.  Fill empty can with milk and add to sausage mixture (if you prefer gravy that's a little runnier just add another half can of milk).  Mix together and heat thoroughly.
When biscuits are done split in half and pour hot gravy over top and enjoy!
So busy busy busy around here! I am finally able to get on blogger again at work!  I really am sorry about the bazillion posts this weekend, I promise there won't be nearly as many this week :P   I will be bringing back the Bedtime Story this week, I am not sure if I am going to keep it on Friday nights or move it to another night, or even leave it flexible. I guess we will have to see what fits the schedule. 
So what do you have planned for this week?


  1. Gotta say I've never understood the biscuits and gravy thing. It seems so heavy for a breakfast. Maybe if I tried it for dinner instead...but I'm not a big fan of sausage. Sigh!

    1. I usually make them for dinner anyway (I never get up early enough to make them for breakfast). My hubby some times makes it with italian sausage or chorizo for a change, but I grew up eating it this way. You could always use less sausage too.

  2. I love biscuits... in general. :P I'm having to become more flexible with my scheduling for the blog. There are some weeks where I have 4 days in a row of new stuff and I feel overwhelmed with comments to respond to. I'm trying to space things out better and change it up week to week.

    1. I try to only post once a day, but after a week of not being able to get on, I was really backed up with posts LOL guess I read too many books :P
