Potato and Sausage Bake

Ready or not, winter weather is upon us.  I am not ready.  I admit I am a pansy when it comes to cold weather.  I don't like snow.  I don't like cold.  Funny coming from a girl who grew up in Idaho where the winters are bitter and harsh and never-ending.  This year mother earth skipped fall and went directly to  cold weather.  Here it is October and we had our first snow last week.  It didn't stick, but that doesn't matter to me.

On days like today where I feel like blasting the heat to a nice toasty 70 degrees and forgetting for a while that it will be winter soon, I like to make something comforting for lunch.  My kids have already eaten and now are down for a nap and while they are sleeping, I am making a Potato and Sausage bake.  Hold on a sec.......

So remember how I said I would post the good,the bad and the burned?  Funny, here I am, typing away and all of a sudden I smell something burning.  Darn it, the potatoes that I had started to cook.  I got lost in thought and they burned.  Hate it when I do that.  Oh well.  Starting over now.
