Sausage Gravy- Southern Style


I used Turkey sausage and whole wheat flour. I used evaporated milk because I didn't have whole milk and whole milk cooks differently than 2 %. The evaporated milk worked but it was a little sweeter than I normally have it. I added a little more pepper. I would suggest using whole milk for the full effect ;) Overall it was good though.
I can't eat this all the time but it makes a hearty breakfast or dinner with biscuits and is frugal and fast. I found this on the internet but I found out my mom makes it the same way :) I have found the joy of cooking especially things that are homemade.

1\2 package of mild Sausage
2 tbsp butter
2tbsp flour
5 cups whole milk
1 1\2 tsp salt
1 1\2 tsp pepper

cook sausage
Add butter and flour
simmer for a few minutes on medium heat, stir frequently
Add milk, salt and pepper
simmer over medium\high stirring constantly
until desired thickness

Twilight and New Moon


I did the opposite of what other people may try to do, I watched the movies before (gasp) reading the books and it is what I always do. Most of the time I end up enjoying the books a bit more, but the movie is usually worthwhile to compare and contrast and gives you a visual that is tangible to the eyes.

Yesterday I finished reading Twilight. I found it worthwhile and it helped me get a bit more into the movie which I had to watch again. I usually don't follow trends in reading and pick up books that look and sound interesting, or maybe someone has suggested was good.

Bella's character was entertaining and at times funny in a dark humor sort of way. What I didn't understand is why she was so careless at times but then again she is 17. I grew to like Edward's character more than I did in the movie, I felt the book went deeper into the core of his personality. I am still rooting for Jacob though and actually was a little excited to start reading New Moon.

Yes, I have already seen New Moon. I am sure I will still enjoy the book. Which is able to go into the story farther and illustrate details in my imagination a bit more than a movie can. I pick up things that I may not have noticed in the movie. The books also have things that happen that may not have been put into the movie. I won't go into detail of that, because I don't want to spoil it for those that have not read the books or seen the movies if there is any left that have not ;). I think it is worthwhile to watch the movies and read the books overall and recommend it for an easy read that has some enjoyment along with it. On a side note this is a 4 part series book; Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. I am going to read them all but I am only going to do this book chat for Twilight.
