Cookie time

I finally got the baking bug! First cookies of the holiday season: Peanut Blossoms ~ I love these cookies! I was given the opportunity to whip up a batch after the complementary package of kisses from my influensterbox. I had to keep the hubby out of them until today. He will be pleasantly surprised when he gets home tonight from work!

Small print

I never really pay attention to the small print on and deals I find. But now after going to purchase an item for Christmas, the said item was all gone. When I asked to get a rain check, it was denied due to the small print stating “Limited availability“.

This really irritates me as I was going to use the Santa bucks this store had, as well as some of my reward coupons I had saved up. It was going to make this purchase a very “great buy”. Now back to the drawing board to see if I can find it else where for just as good a deal if not better!

So make sure you read all of the small (fine) print on any deals you see, as you might get the “sorry, can’t issue a rain check” senario!

9 eggs
3 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons ground mustard

Arrange sausages on an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, turning links once or until sausage is cooked through and lightly browned; drained. Allow to cool slightly. Slice sausage into 1/4 -inch coins.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk and seasonings. Add sausage, hash browns, cheese, bell pepper and onions. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees F for 65 to 70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with salsa or picante sauce.


I love looking at sites to get ideas for possible gifts I can make for much less; always the “cheapskate”!! LOL I know that I have made jewelry for the inlaws for Christmas gifts, but I am thinking about making jewelry again this year and have been checking out for some ideas. Hopefully I have enough jewelry making stuff on hand so I don’t have to go out and buy too much. Money is tight this year, so trying to come up with some lesser expensive gifts for everyone!

Fall! I love this time of year! The smells, the colors, breaking out the sweathers/sweatshirts. Just wish we had a fireplace so I could build a fire and cuddle with my sweetie!

In a few short weeks I get to make my most favorite meal of the year! Turkey with all the trimmings! I am drooling already! Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes/gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, rolls, pumpkin pie, oh my! The next best thing to this meal is the next day, all the left overs! Yum!
