Potato Pancakes & Sausage

Tonight I will be making Potato Pancakes and Sausage Patties because the sausage has been in the fridge awhile and must be used ASAP. I would love to say that I make homemade potato pancakes, but I don't. I tried to make them once and I didn't like them.

Instead I use Hungry Jack boxed mix and they are very yummy, and cheap. There are two packets inside, but I use them both for one dinner, and it costs under $2. The breakfast sausage roll is from Aldi and costs $1.50. I like applesauce with my potato pancakes and we always have applesauce cups in the fridge for my daughter, 4 for $1 at Aldi. So as you can see, this is a very economical dinner, and I don't have to turn on the oven. haha!

The weather today has been cool and gray and has me in a lazy mood. I have not accomplished much except for dishes and two loads of laundry. I am close to finishing a book called Prayers For Sale by Sandra Dallas, which is about a small mining town high in the mountains of Colorado in 1936 and two women who form a close friendship. The next book I read will be Jane Austen In Scarsdale by Paula Marantz Cohen which is about a high school guidance counselor who runs into "the one who got away" because his nephew is one of her students. Anyone read anything good lately?

Happy eating!

  1. Dinner sounds great! I haven't had potato pancakes in years.

    As for reading, I'm still trying to finish "Duma Key" by Stephen King. It's a great book, but I've been busy and haven't picked it up in a few days.
