Sunday brunch

I love Sunday mornings...
Just the Mr. and I at home with absolutely no plans.
After sleeping in a bit we enjoy a big breakfast.
Is it just me or does everyone think food tastes better
cooked in a cast iron pan?
Maybe it's because we both grew up
 with mom cooking at the stove in her cast iron pans.
Barb's Sausage Gravy
Brown a pound of quality pork sausage* in your cast iron frying pan.
*Trust me here...use only the best!
That no name generic stuff grocery stores sell
will have your daughter-in-law picking out strange things from it.
It's gross!
I like to keep my gravy as simple as possible...
Add some dried onion flakes while frying meat.
Once fried and browned add 1/3 cup flour and stir to cover meat.
Begin adding milk, I like to cook with whole milk.
Stir while gravy thickens.
Add 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon.
Let gravy bubble on low heat while biscuits bake in oven for 12 minutes.
If he tells you it's better than his Mom used to make
it will be a good day, right?
I'm still working on projects in progress...
I finally finished the second baby sock here.
Look who likes to hide out in our chiminea in the rain?
One of the stray neighborhood cats.
Mr. b feels sorry for them and feeds them.
Then they chase away the birds that he also feeds.
But no one is going hungry in our neighborhood...


  1. Oh my . . .Love those little socks . . . adorable!

  2. This looks like a nice, relaxing Sunday. Good food, adorable socks and cute cat!
