Happy National Pigs-In-a-Blanket Day!

Today is National Pigs-In-a-Blanket Day, so of course I made some pigs in blankets. I was intending to make them as an accompaniment to Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche, but while at work I realized that I'd forgotten to get the half-and-half for it. So, I figured I'd get some on the way home, but then there was a bit of an April shower moving through. We left work many hours early when the power started flickering and reports of hail and possible tornadoes in our future. One the way home the streets were mad flooded, as was our parking lot. My mom (I work with my mom, by the way) pulled up as parallel as she could to a parking spot bumper, which I hopped to from the car, then hopping to the sidewalk to avoid the above-ankle deep water. Luckily the second round of storms that moved through weren't near as harsh on us, although it's been an evening full of weather interruptions on tv. Oh well, welcome to spring in Texas. :) So, seeing as I didn't acquire the missing ingredient I didn't make the quiche. But I was determined to make PIBs on PIB day! So, I just fried up some eggs and had a bit of breaky for dinner. These obviously aren't some amazing culinary concoction. I used Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls, beef smoked sausage links, and I put a bit of shredded cheddar cheese on the crescent dough before wrapping the sausages up. I bake them as directed on the packaging on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. They are super yummy, and always a big hit with the hubby.
