» Saturday, June 06, 2009Sausage-O-Rama
We picked up the apples for today's lunch centerpiece after dinner last night and James spent most of the evening cooking up the chicken apple sausages with mushrooms, onions, and apples, and a little bit of maple syrup. He had to do a little extra cooking as two of the people coming to lunch are our friends who are Jewish. I checked the sausages when I bought them and, although they were chicken sausages, they had a pork casing. So I also bought some boneless skinless chicken thighs, which we needed anyway, and James cooked up one package of them in the same manner as the sausage.
This morning it was hard to get up at 8:30, but we shook ourselves awake and went to the Farmer's Market for fresh corn on the cob and cucumbers, as well as French bread. We sampled some chicken pot pie and walked by the greyhound rescue folks and let the big-eyed dogs sniff our hands.
From there we went directly to the Butlers. We had a very small crowd today as some folks were not feeling well, and even Colin was still in the hospital. Poor kid is going stir-crazy. However, we still had a great time, and the sausage was well-received.
Afterwards we took the other container of sausage home, then went to the hobby shop and out to Trader Joe's. We didn't have anything else planned, so we came home and I dubbed off Jay Leno's last Tonight Show as long as various things from the last two weeks of his shows: the last animals appearance, the last "Headlines," the best of "Jaywalking" and "Pumpcast," all of Arnold Schwartzenegger's appearance and all of Billy Crystal's.
