Goodies in the mail!

I am so happy blogger is back up and sure caused some big trouble the last two days! I think some of my comments got deleted so don't forget to check out my DT card for the No! No! Challenge going on at Stamping Vacation (the post before this one). There is also a competition amongst the DT and I need your help!! Pretty please with cherry on top! :)

Now for the goodies I have gotten in the mail lately.

Rosalee won the giveaway I had for sending a card for Aunt Jeanne. She sent me this goodie package as a thank you. That was sooooooooo sweet and I love it all! THANKS AGAIN!!

This is a package I won from Dawn! Aren't those flowers GORGEOUS? I just love the metal stamps too! I even bought something over Mother's Day weekend I can use them on...will show you that in the future! THANKS DEAR!

The next two photos are from my pal Merry! She made that BEAUTIFUL Bukuro bag (even in my fav color!) and filled it with the bling, ribbon, BIG flowers, a magnet from her travels and those fun magnetic clips! Also a wonderful Easter card with fun eggs on it!

This is a runner she picked up while in Greece! I can't tell you how much I LOVE it! Matches my decor PERFECTLY!! Certainly an item to cherish in my new home! :)

Okay, I'm off to do some house shopping....actually more like browsing cause I doubt we buy anything today! Getting ideas for the new bath and kitchen!

I'm Back and Tasty Tuesday!

I'm back from spending Mother's Day weekend in Brown County, Indiana with my mom and sister! We all had a really wonderful time...lots of good food, fun shopping and laughter! I hope to post a few pics later on so stay tuned!

Now for this weeks Tasty Tuesday!
One of my husbands favorites and a great Southern breakfast dish!

Biscuits with Sausage Gravy!!

We like to add shredded cheese to ours .... actually we put cheese in just about everything! LOL!

I made some "drop biscuits" from a box. Then all you do is fry up some sausage in a skillet til it is all the way cooked. (Drain if you want less fat) Then sprinkle flour on the top to coat the sausage and add some milk (I don't measure anymore because I have made it so often!) It will get bubbly and start to thicken. I just adjust the thickness and amount with more flour or milk depending on what you like. So super easy! In my travels I have not seen this dish in most places except the Southern USA so if this is a common recipe in your area I would love to know!

For those of you that need quantities of ingredients to get started you can click HERE for a recipe!
