lucky for me, I have had the whole March Break off with the girls, which means lots of crafty goodness. which includes cooking. in between batches of chocolate chip cookies, I macgyver'ed the sausage pancake muffin recipe that S from work was tempting me with all week. the recipe S used is here and is much more complicated that I have time for, but she did make it and she said they were wonderful. I adjusted it for me and here it is for you to try. it's probably the quickest and easiest recipe EVER. seriously. breakfast bliss in a muffin cup.
you will need:
- pancake mix and whatever the box asks you to use - water, milk, eggs, etc. the mix I used only asked for water.
- precooked and cooled breakfast sausages (I used breakfast leftovers)
- shredded cheddar cheese
mix up enough pancake batter for the amount of muffins you want to make. cut up the breakfast sausage into bits and insert into the batter. sprinkle the cheese on top. bake at 350 degrees till the batter is set and the tops of the muffins are golden brown and the cheese melted.
S says to pour syrup on the tops before you eat them but I prefer mine without. I am sure bacon or peameal or leftover ham or maybe even smoked turkey would work just as well.
you're welcome. seriously.
(I think I've gained 5 pounds.)

oh, christina perri. how did I miss this one? being a former "twilight" fan (I don't know if it's because I'm now an old lady but the glitter has worn off) I will admit that I fell under the spell of ms. perri's 'a thousand years'. however, this song - made even better with the addition of the fabulous jason mraz - is the perfect blend of melancholy, heartbreak and yearning. yeah. sappy, I know. chalk it up to little sleep, overwork, and winter blues, perhaps? too bad.

so I am sure that the dude who requested photos of this ring oxidized isn't going to order it but it was neat to dig out the liver of sulfur compound and play chemist for an afternoon. I love how the dark patina roots itself deep into the details, which really makes for an amazing look. I think I like it.
