This morning President Bush nominated Deputy Treasury Secretary Sam Bodman as his choice for energy secretary and later on President Bush helped fill care packages with volunteers at an Operation USA Care Package stuffing facility in Fort Belvoir, Virginia
ENJOY YOUR VISIT TO SANITY ISLAND!
I had not heard this until I read the dose this morning; I watch FOX last night but must have missed this when they did the news unless it was not released until after I had gone to bed.
Yes this is sad I hope it was not because of the media dragging up his past personal life; I would not have thought so because he himself mentioned it in his book. I guess it is just one of those things. Has anyone else been suggested yet?
Not by much!!
I heard the same thing. It's disappointing.
An illegal nanny....
Thank you Gretchen
Does this automatically disqualify him crumbs if this was the case I would have thought half the British cabinet would have things in their background that would disqualify them.
What is sausage gravy and biscuits? Turkey has now become the traditional English meal for Christmas but years ago it was goose. I love goose but it is so expensive and I also get a little nervous with all the hot fat that comes out of it and get scared of burning myself. I would love a goose but cannot really justify the price this year maybe next.
Who is the older nearly bald guy with the President?
That cicada picture gives me the creeps. I HATE flying bugs!
Nice pictures otherwise though.
That is Italia President Ciampim. Thank you America friend I like America President that person is good be strong America good country!Thank you
I love roast beef and yorkshire pudding but unfortunately I will not have enough room in the oven for yorkshire pudding with the turkey unless I precook the yorkshires and just warm them up; I might do that if I get time.
Since BSE dad will not eat beef so will have to do with turkey.
Here's a recipe and a picture for you...
Down-Home Sausage Gravy
Savory breakfast sausage adds a ton of flavor to this simple biscuits 'n gravy recipe. It's practically a meal in itself but don't be shy about adding eggs and hash browns for a hearty brunch.
* 1 (16 ounce) package fresh breakfast sausage
* 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
* 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 2 (12 fluid ounce) cans NESTLE® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
* 1 cup water
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* hot pepper sauce to taste (Tammy's note here -YUCK. I'd skip the hot sauce.)
* hot biscuits
Cook Time: 15 mins
Ready In: 20 mins
COMBINE sausage and onion in large skillet. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink. Stir in flour; mix well. Stir in evaporated milk, water, salt and hot pepper sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
SERVE immediately over biscuits.
You can serve it with eggs or anything else you want of course.
Definitely not your most health conscious meal, but it is sturdy and holds you for a long time.
Thanks. I should have known that!
I knew I had seen him before.
:}}}}} Thank you
Pre-1980, this was simply a formality. Now, however, with the democrats being run by the radicals, they will do anything to destroy a nominee. The hearings are ugly, because the democrats get television time to make all their wild accusations. A nominee must not have anything that will give them ammunition, because they will turn even a minor thing into a full-blown controversy, with the assistance of the major media.
I am sorry for losing Kerik, as I thought he would have been an excellent person to lead Homeland Security. Maybe Guiliani will take it, although he has just started a business and cannot be expected to suddenly abandon it.
Well actually, I was talking about the Italian President, but I didn't know who this one was either, so it works great both ways!
I guess I had passed over this picture too fast last night.
Love that first photo of Dick Cheney.
I have question regarding the sausages what shape are they and how big and are they spicy or herby?
We serve sausages normally with mashed potato and onion gravy in Britain or as a special breakfast with fried tomatoes, fried or scrambled egg, fried bread or toast and possibly baked beans (I do not allow Heinze beans in the house now!!! LOL)
Also I have already asked but what is American custard is it the same as British which is served hot over puddings or fruit?
Our family tradition is to have breakfast on Christmas Eve, the girls will then hang their stockings, we'll read Christmas stories and then they go to bed....in the morning we have orange rolls and milk and open our packages. For dinner we have a ham, spinach salad, scalloped potatoes, vegetables and yeast rolls. I know it is strange to have the breakfast at night, but with hot biscuits and hot cocoa it's comforting and the girls love it.
It's a shame he has to resign when he wasn't in the wrong. I feel sorry for his wife, she probably feels very guilty about it all and feels really low.
The sausage texasflower is referring to is not a shaped sausage, sold in casinings. It is seasoned ground pork and is sold in packages. American cooks either fry it in patties to accompany eggs at breakfast, or crumble it and pan fry it to make sausage gravy.
Hi and welcome from one Cowgirl to another. I'm not a cowgirl copy, I'm JustaCowgirl! LOL.
texasflower, that looks like a great recipe for Sausage Gravy. Having spent a fair amount of time in England back in the day, I can tell you that the British know gravy. And everything else starchy, pretty much. Snugs, I'll bet you can back me up on that.
I'm a fan of starchy foods. They are my downfall rather than sweets. But I can clearly remember after a month of nothing but starches, mostly white, and meat and fish and chips in English pubs and restaurants, I wanted something else in my diet. At that time, the English didn't use nearly as much spice as Southwesterners use in their cooking, so I also found it bland. Good, but bland.
I'll always love Orange Marmalade, though, and Lemon Curd. One of my favorite recipes is bread pudding, which I think is English, too. Maybe I'll post a recipe for that. Simple but oh so good. The secret, like all puddings, is in the sauce.
snugs, I know the feeling of relief at thinking your mom is being well taken care of. I went through that with my mom, and I was so relieved when we found a place where she was comfortable and well taken care of.
Ping to #131. I forgot to include you on that one.
Who knows-we may get some pics of Diddy at the inaugural? He can give a speech on how it would have been better to kick Bush's arse out of there and then give a great example of family values and talent and honor the President and First lady with one of his many fine songs. He can bump and grind and show why he got that White House personal tour being one of our fine national treasures.
I lived, biefly, in Great Falls many years ago. It was lovely, very windy from the Chinooks (sp?).
Always think of "The Girl of the Limberlost" when thinking of Indiana. Our teacher read to us every Friday before school let out. Wasn't the "Hoosier Poet" from Indiana?
Riley wrote a lot of poems, but the most famous is "Little Orphan Annie." Riley was originally from Greenfield, and I believe there is a home there set up as a museum to him.
I LOVE lemon curd and orange marmalde too!
We use ground sausage. It is so good.
I'm not sure about custards though.
Your special breakfast sounds good too.
Thanks for the food education. We also have custard how you describe it, we call that baked custard or egg custard.
The custard that we use for a sauce is bascially corn flower with vanilla flavouring which we add milk and sugar to, bring to the boil and cook for a few minutes.
Bread pudding or bread and butter pudding. I like both though bread pudding is the more spicy one. English cooking has changed over the years we now use more spices and herbs than we have for many years.
We eat a lot of Indian food it is our most popular take-away (take-out).
Thanks for your comments regarding mum yes it is a weight off our minds an expensive one but still a weight lifted.
What are orange rolls?
My favourite is ginger marmalade or ginger conserve as we have to call it as it is not technically marmalade
Sausage gravy & biscuits is a southern delicacy! You cook up breakfast sausage (Tennessee Pride is the brand we've found to be the best), not links or patties, just the bulk meat. From the drippings of the sausage you make a thick milk gravy, then dump the sauage back in to really cook in the sausage flavor. The sausage gravy is served over hot biscuits. If you've never had it before, don't even bother with trying to get it in a restaurant. I've never found a restaurant that makes it taste better than just edible. And if you know how to make a good milk gravy you'll be happy with the results of making it yourself.
I've never had goose, or duck, but I'm not really fond of dark meat on chicken or turkey, so I'm not sure I'd enjoy them.
Might I suggest using regular whole milk instead of the evaporated milk and water? My family makes a roux from the sausage drippings and then adds milk to thin out the roux. I love adding hot sauce to mine, but the rest of the family doesn't, so I just put a little bottle of Cholula at my place setting. If you use the Tennesse Pride brand you can get hot or mild (stay away from the sage). The hot will add a nice kick, but again with the family I have to use the mild.
Actually, I usually do use just regular whole milk for the gravy.
Sometimes we use use the evaporated milk though.
I can't stand hot sauce, but I do like the idea of using hot sausage instead of regular though. Yum. I'll have to make some for breakfast soon!
That sounds good. Doesn't that breakfast have a particular name?
I was talking to one of my daughter's friends from Scotland on instant message the other day and he called it something and told me to look it up, but I forgot what he called it.
The sausage I use is just ground sausage for the biscuits and gravy.
I usually use mild but I think I would like spicy sausage. Just not hot sauce!
That mashed potato and onion gravy sounds good. How do you do that?
So did I miss the recipe for Bread pudding that you said you might post? :)
I love bread pudding, but I have no idea of how to make it.
The breakfast is what we call in Southern England full English Breakfast what the Scots call it I do not know.
Regarding sausage and mash with onion gravy. We use normal English sausages just a regular herby sausage and the gravy is usually made from stock cubes or powder and cooked onion which if you have fried the sausages would have been fried first with them to give more flavour if you have grilled (broiled) the sausages then the onions would just have been fried gently in a frying pan with a little oil until soft and then added to the gravy.
Hope that made sense.
All this talk of biscuits and sausage gravy sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, I can feel my arteries clogging just from reading it! :-)
