Take It Or Leave It

Tonight finds me cooking up a wonderful heart clogging meal. I am pan frying German rope sausage. I have never had this before, but all of the locals have told me just how to prepare this delicious case-filled delight. I am also making fried potatoes, steamed cauliflower, and yummy green peas. The cauliflower and peas are my kid's pick.

Now, when I unwrapped the sausage from the butcher paper, the sausage reminded me of a coiled snake. Gross, kind of. Anyway, I am sure it's very fattening. This is the reason why we aren't having any dessert. I can only handle so much yummy goodness.

Today was a much milder day than yesterday. It was still a bit windy, but not as cold. No flurries decided to visit us in the night. Yeah. I am done with all of this snow.

My mom's birthday is coming up. I am buying her two tickets to Korea for next year. Not sure how I am going to do that, or if I can buy them for next year. I would like to buy her tickets to redeem at her leisure. I just don't know if they can let you do this. Anyone know about buying airline tickets? Can you buy tickets that far in advance? Even if it was for a set date, we could always reschedule them. I don't have the foggiest clue about that. I better look into it.

Well, I have probably rambled enough this evening. Life is pretty boring around here if all I can talk about is what's for dinner and the weather. lol... Oh well, take it or leave it.

hi, i followed your link from dave's blog. how did your meal turn out? i've never had the sausage, but i love any kind of potatoes and cauliflower.

as far as plane tickets, check and see if you can buy open tickets where you make the purchase now and do the dates later on. i know when you buy round-trip tickets, you can leave the return date open. don't know if there'd be an extra charge, but check the airlines. that's a beautiful gift to bless your mom with.
