On NYE, I was doing some shopping with the fam and I had not eaten a thing all day. The food gods smiled brightly upon me that day and presented me with a sausage sample. Yes please! I was starving. It tasted marvelous…..at the time. My starving tastebuds mucked up my normal tastebuds rendering my palate useless. Last night when I cooked up said sausage it tasted nothing like I remembered. Now I’m sure it tasted exactly the same, but sanity had resumed it’s proper place in my body, so it was VILE!! Let this be a lesson to you all to never buy the samples you taste in a store when you taste them starving because it’s always going to taste good.
I tell my husband not to save this crappy sausage, but what do I find when I open my fridge this morning? The sausage. Now, I don’t like to pat myself on the back (BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!), but I like to think I have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to being able to resurrect food from the dead. Example, one time I made the almighty asslicious frozen fish stick edible by turning it into a chowder of sorts. It was a hail mary for sure. But back to my deaf eared husband and his apparent want for me to turn this crappy snausage into a culinary delight. What does one do with a vile sausage to bring it back to life? You throw a hail mary of cheese and salsa over it and sit down while the food angels serenade you with “ahs”. This is like food 101, but my husband will think it’s a sausage miracle! I wonder what this queso will get me? A foot rub, a back rub……maybe he will fold the laundry!! Maybe he will fold the laundry AND put it away!! Now that truly would be a sausage miracle. I’ll let you know. Feel free to come over with some chips because I made a ton of queso. It is a day for football. Bring some red Solo cups too while you are at it, we’ll have a party! I slay me. LOL ; )
P.S. Because someone will ask……Take a pound and a half of your most vile sausage (or do it right and use ground beef or ground chorizo), dump a jar of your fav salsa (I love Garden Fresh Salsa), a bunch of cheese (I used a bunch of different cheese, but make sure one of the cheeses you use is cheddar….I’m going to say I used 4 cups of cheese. I told you I made a TON), a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of milk and a few splashes extra, some flour to thicken, cumin, chili powder, granulated garlic, hot sauce, cayenne pepper (or don’t even bother with that crap and dump a taco seasoning packet on it because I’m one of those who cook by taste so good luck trying to get exact measurements from me) and dive right in.
