Christmas is Coming!

Hello, folks, Matt and Violet Emerson here.  Elaine told our story in her book A New Dream.  We've taken over Elaine's blog for the month of December so she can have a break. 

Matt: I don't know if you guys know or not, but Violet operates a catering company.  I thought since Christmas was coming soon, it would be nice if she'd share one of her favorite recipes with you.

Violet: I'd love to!  I got this recipe from Elaine's friend Bobbi Groover.  Have you read Bobbi's book?

Matt: What's it called?

Violet: The Inn at Little Bend.

Matt: Sounds good.  Share the recipe, and then we'll read an excerpt.

Violet:  Okay, here's Bobbi's recipe.

SCOTCH EGGS
Heat oven to 350

1 lb. pork sausage

12 hard boiled eggs, peeled

2 eggs, beaten

1 12oz. can beer

1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs

one bunch parsley


Using wet hands work about 1 1/2 Tbsps. of sausage around each egg to encase completely.

Dip in beaten eggs, then in beer. Roll in breadcrumbs. Place eggs on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Bake 45-60 minutes or until sausage is browned. Cut in halves or quarters and serve on a bed of parsley.

And now for that excerpt!
 
The music swirled again in her mind, teasing and caressing her soul as masterfully as a lover.
Her lagging spirit, that vital force which usually sustained her, felt renewed when the notes
purled around her like a wraith sent to guide her through the maze of turmoil.

He came from the shadows and took her hand. "Come with me," he whispered.

She went with him willingly, knowing in her core that he understood the complexities of her soul.
His eyes were blue...like Drake's...
 
Matt: I like the sound of this.  Folks, the book is available at   http://goo.gl/HeQWt.  Don't forget to check it out, and don't forget to join Elaine at http://www.trsparties.com .  She's sharing excerpts from her work.

Violet: There's one more thing.  April, you're Elaine's winner at the Naught or Nice blog hop.  She'll be sending you a book sometimes today.
