Happy Birthday Max!
My fur baby Max turns 7 years old today! It’s so hard to believe he’s that old! I took Max in when he was 5 weeks old! He suffers from the perpetual puppy-ness of his basenji/beagle breeding. For his “cake” I offered him a spoon of peanut butter, which he quickly gobbled up! The rest of the day was spent playing ball and taking the usual 2-3 naps while Parrish and I went to get our Christmas tree!!
We searched and searched for the perfect tree. Parrish was very patient, and helped me look each one over.
And then we found it!! An eight foot beauty!
And then I took a nap in a bed of Christmas delight!
Have you guys bought your Christmas tree yet? I’ve been wanting to decorate since Halloween, so I was MORE than ready. While decorating the house, I snacked on the ever-so-delicious:
Gluten Free Sausage Ball!!
So, if you’ve never eaten a sausage ball, I guess I would describe it as a cheesy, meaty biscuit. Some folks use hot sausage, and in those batches the heat is definitely there, but I got my Mom to use mild.
And they are super simple to make! In a food processor, mix one pound of sausage (we used local), one pound of sharp cheddar, and two cups Beth’s gluten free all-purpose flour. Roll the mixture into balls, the size of your choice. The smaller the ball, the less time it will take to bake. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. The original recipe my Mom used calls for Bisquick. So I think the next time I make this recipe, I’ll use GF pancake mix and see how it turns out.
*****Ok, back to Extreme Home Makeover Edition and bawling my eyes out!! I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving!! :) I am SO incredibly THANKFUL for each and every one of you. Writing this blog means so much to me, and reading your comments and emails mean even more. Thank you!
