A "tasty" vent

Food blogs--an interesting phenomenon!  32,850 pictures.  Descriptions that would make WAR AND PEACE seem like a light, short read.  By the time you get to the recipe, thoughts of retribution float through your head, along with the overwhelming belief, "This had dad-gum better be worth it!"  And some are.  Most aren't and in the time you have taken to get to the recipe, you could have solved world hunger, walked on the moon, visited (and returned from) Mars, or at least have had a cup of coffee and a piece of left-over pie!
Not this blog! 
Here's the recipe you REALLY want to try--good at first bite--good for breakfast warmed over (or up!).  Try it, knowing how much you are loved!

Mushroom Chicken Sausage Casserole
3/4 cup cubed chicken (I also have used left-over turkey!)
1 pound Jimmy Dean Hot pork sausage
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 head cauliflower, broken into flowerettes and steamed in the microwave until crisp tender
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the sausage with the celery, onion, and mushrooms.  Stir in the softened cream cheese and stir until well blended.  Add the chicken, cauliflower and 6 oz of the cheddar cheese.  Turn into a greased 9X13 pan.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Recipe says makes 8-12 servings.  Fat chance.  Your first serving might be normal.  After that, you will begin with a little more, and perhaps go back!!!!  ENJOY!
