A Fun and Tasty Day

Since school started, I have made James a breakfast of scrambled eggs and toaster waffles everyday. This morning I thought I would make the real thing.

I had trouble finding the waffle maker at first. Then Gary said, is that it? I was standing right in front of it.
Everyone got one of these:
They couldn't make up their mind to be round or square.

I turned mine into:


Later in the day, we all went to see the re-release of Avatar in 3D. My mother even came.

James sportin' the glasses & Cait passing time 'til the flick starts

It was just as good as the first time. My husband hadn't seen it before. I think the 3D business gave him a headache.

When we got home, I made dinner of smoked sausage, potatoes & onions and peas & carrots.
It was delicious and easy to make.

You just need polish or smoked sausage, red potatoes and a Vidalia onion.
I put the sausage in a large skillet first. While the sausages were defrosting, I sliced the potatoes thinly. I put a tablespoon or two of olive oil in the pan and added the potatoes.

Next, I thinly sliced the onion.
This is where I was wishing I had a mandolin slicer.

These were added to the pan and the potatoes were flipped on top of the onions. I placed a lid on it and let the whole thing steam and the onions caramelize.
It was a fine day.

BTW, I just realized that I didn't say anything about salt, pepper or seasoning on that sausage dinner. I add salt, pepper and garlic powder to the potatoes when I first put them in pan. You can season with whatever you want, but if you don't it will be VERY bland.
