Patti was at the market the other day to buy hamburger which was $4.35 a pound, next to it was prime rib roast at $4.77 a pound. A definite “no brainer”. Plus, our gas grill has a rotisserie. Perfect! We used our Date Night…

Smoked Sausage Stuffing

Smoked Sausage Stuffing Smoked Sausage Stuffing, it is recommended that you don’t stuff your turkey as Mom did when we were growing up. Because the stuffing does not get hot enough to kill any food-borne bacteria and slows down the cooking of the turkey. Plus, it’s harder to get out of the bird when you raid the refrigerator for leftovers. We did our stuffing in…
