Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for:

  • Christmas, a day to celebrate our Savior's birth.  How very thankful that I am saved from the power, penalty, and the presence of sin in my life because Jesus came to take away the sin of the world.  That small baby in the manger is truly the greatest gift of all time.
  • The amazing Word of God that is our guide through life.  I can't image being without it, not for one day!  
  • Friends and family.  God has blessed us with an amazing family that is so dear to us.  We are truly blessed with so many close friends that have had such an impact on our lives.  
  • The terrible messes in life that lead us to hope-filled messages of God's love and concern for what we have been through.  Our hope is in God...Praise HIM!
  • Each new day that God gives, a fresh start, new mercies every morning!

Foodie Friday - Holiday Sausage Ring

Holiday Sausage Ring


This wonderful recipe has been used in our family for years.  Mom Cornish, or my sister-in-law, Patty, would always host Christmas dinner, and I would host Christmas Brunch.  This sausage ring was always a favorite.     We like it served with eggs and toast, and the second day, we like it served along with popovers laced with butter and jam.  Yumm!  

2 lb. bulk sausage (I like Jimmy Dean)
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. grated onion
1 1/2 c. fine breadcrumbs (I use Italian flavor)
1/4 c. chopped parsley

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly butter a 9" ring mold.  Mix ingredients well and pack into mold.  Bake 20 minutes, take from oven and pour off excess fat.  Bake 20 minutes more. Turn onto heated platter and fill with scrambled eggs (8-12 eggs).  For dinner sausage ring,  fill with buttered mashed potatoes.  This keeps well and is just as tasty warmed up the next day.  

How pleased I was to have it selected for publication in the Gooseberry Patch's Christmas Cookbook.



Merry Christmas,
