Mega Breakfast!

Meet: Mega Breakfast. My neighbors and I had planned this mega breakfast for a week. We were so excited we even planned to eat it in our PJ's. Most people followed the rules. There were 7 of us eating this meal. So please don't think it was just 4 fatties, there were 3 more plates.

We had the basic bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs. (I know, we were missing grits, but I thought I was the only one who wanted them, turns out that was a BIG disappointment!) Allison made her amazing Chocolate Chip Pancakes and I also added hashbrown casserole and some mini quiches.

Recipes to follow.

Sausage n' Rice

I've been working.....a lot. I got a new job a year ago and they just switched me to a new position, Therefore, I am trying to figure out what in the deuce I'm doing and it's causing a little stress and fatigue in my life right now. I made this Sunday night (my only day off this week!) After going to the store and running errands all day I didn't feel much like cleaning a huge mess. Plus, Monday night football tomorrow and we've got peeps coming over. This was probably one of the easiest and cheapest meals I've made in a while. I'm about to feed it to the husband so we'll see how he likes it. I however, think it's great!

1 package smoked sausage
1 Package of yellow rice dinner (the kind w/ the seasoning stuff in it. I use Winn Dixie Brand)
2 1/2 cups water
Cayenne Pepper
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Parsley Flakes
Salt n' Peppa

Slice sausage and fry until just browned on both sides in a big ole pot.

Add water and seasoning and bring to a boil.

Add rice package and stir for a minute to make sure all that stuff is combined.

Turn down to low, throw a lid on it and come back in 20.

I served it w/ a fork! :)

Husband gave it a good review! Shazaam!
