How To Make Italian Sausage

 

Hot & Sweet sausage.

Hot & Sweet sausage.

Yesterday afternoon I had a hankering for chicken & sausage cacciatorie.  My vitamin E deprived body was growing tired of sparring with Old Man winter and some good ol’ comfort food was gonna’ be the trick to fix those winter blahs.  The only trouble was……..I was out of homemade Italian sausage.

Making sausage is easy.  The financial investment is minimal, the cost is way cheaper than those store-bought links, but best of all……….THEY TASTE GREAT!  I need to give my good friend Mike a call and get busy making some homemade Italian sausage.

You should give it a try.  I promise you’ll never go back to those store-bought links once you & your family feast on this delicious treat!

With the Holiday Season now in the past and Winter boredom  beginning to grow, I think it’s time to get off the couch and make some salami.  If you love the taste of salami and are always looking to try your hand at a new food adventure, then I urge you to give this a try.  It’s really not that complicated.  I’ve taken a lot of the “guess-work” out in the link below.  If you want to give it a try CLICK HERE.

“I Love…. I Love…My Calendar Girls…”

In 1960, Neil Sedaka released Calendar Girl.  The song was about the love for his girlfriend and corresponding events each month which illustrated this love.  Though I am no Neil Sedaka, I must confess that there were a few Charlie’s Angels posters which hung in my room as a teen.  But,  I am here to tell you that this City Boy has cleaned up his act.

“Ladies and gentlemen……….It gives me great pleasure to inform you of a three-way tie for Miss January 2015…………  Drum roll please………….  All the way from Ontario, Canada, please give a big round of applause for this year’s winner of the prestigious title for Miss January 2015.  Ladies and Gentlemen, please give it up for…….. Honda, Swifer & Rosie”.

That’s right folks.  Your eyes and ears have not deceived you.  My three chickens were selected to be the January “girls” for Backyard Poultry Magazine’s 2015 calendar.   I am  proud to say that the calendar is proudly displayed in our kitchen, and my prestigious honor” has sure given my friends a hearty laugh! “Hey Ted, ……you pulled yourself together yet?”

Happy New Year to All.  I hope your 2015 will be filled with many new discoveries and lots and lots of laughs!!
