It was “just right”…

Can you see my grateful forming…

Relatives and friends there… honoring our little graduate and her parents…

To make the effort to come… to bring a gift…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As a Grandma… I am so grateful!…

I see our family staying close… loving each other… and making that “effort” that it takes to come to events like this…

Hopefully the younger ones will take heed and reciprocate later in their lives…

Thanks to everyone who was able to come!

Directions

Wrap each sausage in 1/3 slice of bacon… and roll in brown sugar… can secure with wooden toothpick or just lay seam down… (this is what i did) on a cookie sheet…

Sprinkle remaining brown sugar on top…

Bake 375 degrees until bacon starts to brown… and crisp… approximately 20-25 minutes…

I drained grease off and sprinkled a little more sugar on them… then put under broiler till browner and crisper…

After cooling I just put in a baking dish to serve… some bacon might fall off…

That’s OK!… we are not perfect!…

YUMMY!…. and they were all gone!
