Pigs-in-a-Blanket! Nom Nom Nom!

mini pork sausages wrapped in pillsbury crescent dough and seasoned with a dash of garlic salt

Feast your eyes on the cutest little pigs-in-a-blankets!! Laura and I concocted these little cuties from Pillsbury Crescents dough and mini pork sausages. We popped open the scary little can, unraveled the dough and cut them into small triangles just like you would for normal crescents but instead of rolling them up in themselves like ordinary uncreative folks, we wrapped them around a mini pork sausage!! We even got a little more creative in the end and rolled a few with cheese inside, too. Then, we finished them off with a dash of garlic salt (what would we do without garlic salt?!) and popped them into the oven for about ten minutes until the dough turned into a delicious golden brown crisp. These pigs-in-a-blanket were so tasty that Lards and I polished off the entire dish in a matter of minutes. They were crispy and golden on the outside and warm and fluffy in the inside- the definition of delicious perfection. Give these babies a try and experience delicious perfection for yourself!

Oh, how I adore pigs-in-a-blanket.... :)

Stuffed Pork Chops...Always Worth The Wait!

Bacon makes everything better.
Warning: very photo heavy!!!

Fresh parsley and smoked gouda
Ready for grilling!

On the grill...

Ready to eat!

YAY! First post with my DSLR photos. Now you can see all our delicious creations in HD. 

First of all, so sorry for the lack of posts. Winter break happened and therefore laziness happened, but now we're back and hopefully will have a plethora of posts for you to enjoy! :)

Shelley and I made this amazing meal a while back, but looking back at these photos has me drooling! Pork chops stuffed with bacon and smoked gouda. As I've said before, bacon makes everything better! We followed this recipe step by step and it turned out great! This was pretty heavy and extremely filling. Adding a side of spinach salad with a light vinaigrette rounded out our meal.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year! Look forward to more scrumptious treats from us in 2012! 

Hugs! - Lardy
