Breakfast this morning was a mini-bagel smothered in Philadelphia salmon cream cheese. Since I eat breakfast at 6 a.m., I always need a back up breakfast for when I arrive at work. Today I packed Mikayla's Crayola container full of Almond Milk, and a bag of cereal (Cinnamon chex mix, special K, and raisins).... since I've been pregnant I've had this thing for cereal; although its not really very filling.
Anyway, back to my point. I saw Bratwursts were on sale, so I purchased two packs of them. I knew while grocery shopping that this would be dinner because they are super quick and easy. I also picked up a box of Mrs. T's mini-pierogies, which are usually live in my freezer because they are so yummy. Dinner would be simple, yet delicious!
|Mmmm I love mustard!|
Once they were done, I took kitchen scissors, cut off the casing, and pan fried them to perfection. (After, I heated up Rocket & Pockets food in the leftover grease... they were in doggie heaven)
|Dinner on a paper towel... now that's what I call class!|
While scarfing down my Bratwursts last night I asked Pete what the difference was between a Brat and a Sausage... we came to the conclusion one is beef (Brat) and the sausage is pork. well, after a lil googling I discovered a Brat is just a type of sausage, and Sausage is just a blanket statement for any meat wrapped in a casing. Brats are German, and in Germany they include veal in theirs, but not here in our lovely I'm-afraid-to-eat-veal-ever country. Whatever the actual difference is, the Brat was much meatier, tastier, and less greasy than sausage that I normally buy. (and a lil FYI- a Knackwursts, or Knockwurst, is more "hot dog" looking, and are flavored, mostly with garlic). Am I wrong? I found this interesting anyway, but I am an avid sausage lover :)
I am off to eat lunch (leftovers), finish my day, and possibly go dress shopping for my friend Katies wedding tomorrow night. Lets just hope I can keep my eyes open!!
