“Bangers a la Bang”

For whatever reason, I’ve had it in my head that I wanted to make Bangers & Mash sometime this week. Since I had leftover sausage from last night’s Stuffed Shells, I thought I’d give it a go.


I did not make onion gravy, obviously, but I bet Jay would’ve liked these with some fried onions or onion rings.


I know. It’s a very naughty, suggestive sausage.

Overall, it was good. I felt a little odd using some Italian sausages…If I make it over to the farmers market this weekend, maybe I’ll get some beef sausages, and try again.

For dessert, I had some fruit.


Strawberries, with Fruit Dip.


The Best Fruit Dip EVER, according to Iowa Girl Eats. I think either I nuked my Marshmallow Creme a little too long, or my cream cheese wasn’t quite room temperature, because mine’s a little grainy. But it still tastes really freakin’ good, and as long as we’ve got fruit, I’ll eat it!

And now, while I wait for The Voice to come on, I think I’ll finish cleaning up the kitchen. I need to make some room on the counter for the crock pot…Jay is especially excited for tomorrow night’s dinner!

  1. Thanks for the muffins last week! I have a small present for you from MN in appreciation of your baking awesomeness. Did you know Whole Foods Edina has a grind your own nut butter area? Sounds wrong yet oh so right. We should go on a girls weekend trip just to visit grocery stores.

    • Aww, you didn’t have to get me anything! :) Perhaps Thursday evening we should have some drinks, and some apps and maybe discuss book #3? I think Katie should be finished with it by now! And, allow me to pick my jaw up off the floor…Grind Your Own Nut Butters?! I NEED to test this out! And I’m all for road-tripping to visit grocery stores. I haven’t been to a Trader Joe’s since the day before my wedding, and I’ve yet to set foot in a Whole Foods. That needs to change.

  2. I would be ALL about a trip to trader joes/ whole foods with you ladies!

    • Y’know, since neither one of us can really plan vacations with our spouses, let’s plan a girls weekend to the Cities. Including stops at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. :) Food, drinks and FUN!!!
