Devilled Sausages and Marbled Choc Cookies...

The mercury has dropped in our part of South Australia, it was 12C when I left work at 4pm yesterday so I thought something nice and warming for dinner was in order. Devilled sausages, peas and mashed potatoes.

I use a few flavour bases in my cooking - I know they have added salt and sometimes artificial favourings but they really do make nice, quick meals... I browned some sausages and one onion, cut the snags into 4-5 pieces each, sliced up 2 carrots and one green apple and added these to the casserole dish with the packet of mix, 2T tomato sauce and 1.5 cups of water. Gave it a stir and popped it into the oven. I gave it about an hour at 180C then backed it down to 150C for another half hour until we were ready to eat.

The sauce thickens up nicely and then you are ready to go. A hot, crusty bread roll completed the meal.

I found this recipe for Marbled Chocolate Cookies at What's for dinner Mum? by Lisha. As you know, I am a sucker for a good cookie recipe, especially if it involves chocolate.
~
It made a big batch and yes, they are really goooood! I did us a slightly different method to make the cookie dough as I believe you get a crunchier cookie by creaming the butter, sour cream and sugars first then adding the dry ingredients. Give them a go, they are worth it!

It's 8.30am and it's 11.2C outside at the moment. A windy, rainy day for sure. I must locate my brolly (umbrella) and get out my winter coat for when I have to do the banking etc this afternoon. Winter has really kicked in and we had lots of heavy rain overnight so I think we will have a good winter season which will keep the farmers happy.

Enjoy your day, stay warm (or cool) depending on where you are in this world.
(Oh, and my thoughts and prayers are with those people who suffered that horrendous tornado in Joplin, US yesterday. So tragic.)
