One for you and one for me! …….and how big is your pile? ....and……Fall into Flavor

In honor of my 100th post I am killing two or maybe three birds with one stone so bear with me.

First, I have a small give away for one of my wonderful readers.

I love a bargain and I love decorative wall crosses and I found these wonderful fall foliage crosses marked down 50% at the Hobby Lobby. (Yaaaaaa!!!!!!!) I bought the last two they had, so I have one for me and one for you!!!!!!

My two favorite things all in one.

If you will leave me a comment I will draw from all of them and pick a winner. I can’t wait to see who will win!!!!!!
I'll leave the contest open until next Monday!!!!!

Secondly I was reading a post over at 2nd Cup of Coffee about Linda’s Laundry Miracle. She shared with all of us about the rare occurrence of being able to fold all her white socks and actually having them all match up.

I though to myself that there have been a few rare occasions when this extraordinary laundry phenomena has occurred in my universe of dirty Landry, however more time than not I am left with the sad lonely orphaned sock. Theses mate less abandoned foot apparel make there way to a laundry basket orphanage on top of my dryer. Periodically I will go through this basket/orphanage to see if the strange unseen laundry forces have aligned and brought two long lost socks together once again.

So here’s a question for ya. Do you save the odd socks or do you toss them?

I can't seen to toss them away. I am not sure why except for the nagging thought that as soon as I toss one away I will miraculously come across the mate under the sofa or wedged in the toe of a pair of shoes in the back of my closet.

I know with the daily drama of the impending elections the climate seems a bit tense! There are weighty issues hanging in the balance. Casting our votes weather you have already done so or if you will be standing in line tomorrow is one of our most important privileges we have as Americans. Well, I thought I would lighten the mood a bit and give you all a glimpse into the amazingly unexciting and unimportant details of my life.

So here it is my sock pile!

Thirdly: Fall Into Flavor

Here is my contribution to this weeks fall into Flavor.
It is simple fare but what could be better then grits, sausage, butter and cheese???????
Cheese Grits Casserole
3 Cups Grits
12 Cups Water
1/2 Pound of Butter or Margarine
1 Pound Grated Cheese (any kind you like)
6 Eggs (Beaten)
1 or 2 Pounds Sausage (Browned and Grease Drained Off)
Salt And Pepper To Taste

Cook grits according to package directions. When grits are done add cheese and browned sausage and mix until incorporated. Remove about one cup of the grits mixture and add to your beaten eggs to temper, whisk together. Add this back to the grits and mix until will incorporated.
Pour into well greased casserole dish and bake off in 350 oven for 20 to 30 minutes until heated through and bubbly.
You can add some additional grated cheese to the top of this about 5 or so minutes before finished to add an extra cheese touch.
You can make it ahead ff time and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
Options: Crumbled Bacon or Diced Ham or Sautéed Onions or Peppers or Mushrooms and don’t forget Shrimp!!!!!!!!!!
Great for Brunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cross is beautiful! What a great find. I should look at my Hobby Lobby up the street to see if they have any!
Also, I love grits... especially with cheese and I do mix mine with my scrambled eggs - so it only makes sense to go ahead and do it on purpose for everyone! Great idea!

WAIT! I come here for a recipe and now I have to enter a contest, and comment on my sock-situation? oK.
Very Pretty Cross. Beats all the junkie Fall decorations I've seen ...and Jesus IS the Reason for ALL Seasons!
The most socks ever widowed: 14.
Yes. I know this because we keep track on a white board and this # got written with MrPermanentSharpie instead of MrDryEraseExpo. We save 'em for awhile and then give 'em to the dog.
The options (Crumbled Bacon or Diced Ham or Sautéed Onions or Peppers...will make this a hit in my house. THANK YOU!
It's fun meeting new people doing meme's

You can add my name to your drawing! Wow, I sure am honored to be kind of "featured" in your post. This recipe sounds like a great one for Christmas breakfast. and now you've reminded me of another sock feature. Thanks for contributing!

Terri Tiffany said...

I save my single socks for awhile--hoping maybe the other will come home! Then it is in the trash with them!
beautiful cross!!!
And thanks for giving me chapter and verse-I have NEVER been able to memorize my scripture and I wish so badly I could!

Kim said...

I love grits! And since I can't seem to find them here, they're going on my list of things I want people to bring when they visit :-)

I used to save socks for a year or so. Then if their mates didn't show up, they were put into the "rag" bag. Socks make great shop rags!

And we found out our absentee ballots were delivered Monday morning. Yippee!

100th post-how awesome is that! I happened onto your blog thru "2nd Cup of Coffee". It is wonderful, I have really enjoyed reading it. The cross is beautiful, Hobby Lobby is one of my favorites! I can't wait to try your recipe with the grits, it looks very good. And my story with the socks is the washer eats them, no use saving for match up, it just eats them...That's my story and I am sticking to it!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Ruthie said...

Congrats on your 100th post! Such an accomplishment!
And yes, please enter me in your contest. That is a wonderful cross.

Socks: I save them for awhile to be sure the other won't turn up. Then I toss them away.

The White Dog!!! Amazing! That makes me even more sure that it was an angel. Did you read the comment above yours? That also was a white dog that walked with that lady to work!! I'm sure the Lord can make angels appear as anything that would be of protection for us.

Hey Robin! Thanks for your comment on my blog today...here is a link to an older post about the mysteries of wellies!!....


By-the-way, what are grits? :)

a portland granny said...

I've never had grits in my life, but I'm thinking I would probably love them with all of the goodies in this recipe!!

Your sox basket reminds me of the week I stayed with my grandchildren and made it my goal to work on their sock basket--I enlisted the kids and it was amazing how many mates we found!

Trust your week has been a good one. Mine is looking better every day!
