WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!!!!

Even though this blog looks like my old one, Debbie-Dabble, "Debbie-Dabble Blog" is my new Blog that I created on June 23, 2016, after my old one was hacked through my Debbie-Dabble Face Book Page which I have now deleted!!

I am a Victorian Soul, live in a small townhouse, not a huge Mega Mansion, with my Hubby Joe. I recently went Part Time after working full time night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 32 years and have been in nursing for 38 years!

I DABBLE IN A BIT OF THIS AND THAT!!!!

Sausage Filling


HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Now  I make no bones about the fact that I HATE to cook.........

I know how to cook but I would rather do just about anything BUT cook.......

For Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, I make a very EASY Sausage Filling to serve with Turkey.........

And I mean easy because I just came home after working all night and threw it together and popped it in the oven so I will only have to heat it up tomorrow for Dinner as I am also working tonight ( Thanksgiving Eve, remember Hospitals never close!)

This post took longer to do than the Filling did!!

4 simple ingredients and seasonings.......
 1 Bag of Martin's Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing......
 Diced Celery........

I use about 3/4's of the container.....
 Yes, I get fresh already diced celery!!

3/4 - 1 lb. of Pork Sausage and 1 jar of  Heinz Pork Home Style Gravy......
 Mix stuffing, celery and gravy in a bowl.......
 Mine is a bowl from Tupperware called "That's a Bowl"............
 Fry the sausage up until brown........
 Drain and add to the stuffing mixture........
I season with onion salt ( you can add diced onions but the boys do not like them), garlic salt and pepper!

Pour mixture into a pan and YES, I even use a disposable tin foil pan!!
Cover with tin foil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes!!
  And here it is ready to serve........
 I cut it into squares and place it on a nice platter to serve. Pour gravy over or eat just like this!!
 The potatobred stuffing and the gravy make it nice and moist.

Another option would be to use turkey sausage and turkey gravy to moisten the stuffing......

 EASY PEASY but delicious!!

And may I add that Sam's Club makes a mean apple pie!!  We do not care for pumpkin.....




Sausage Filling

3/4 lb. of pork sausage
I package of Bread crumbs ( Martin's potato Bread Cubes)
3/4 tsp. of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1 can of Heinz Pork Gravy
1 cup of chopped celery
Sprinkle with onion and garlic salt

Fry sausage
Combine all ingredients in large bowl
Make sure bread crumbs are moistened by gravy
Pour into baking dish, cover with tin foil, use second rack

Bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degrees preheated oven

ENJOY!!!

Just the 5 of us will be enjoying Thanksgiving Dinner together around 4:00 pm so I can sleep a bit in the morning after working the night before and so Jim and Danielle can get a bit of sleep before they go in to work at Target for 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving Night.........

I have worked either the Eve or the Day of every Thanksgiving for the past 37 years so working on a Holiday is no big deal for my family....We just work around it!!

I am off on Thursday and Friday nights though.......

I hope you get to spend Thanksgiving with those you love!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

And I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

A Table Transformation

First, I want to Thank my friend, Sandi, over at Rose Chintz Cottage, for featuring my post, Want to See What Joe Bought, as the Most Viewed Post from last week's No Place Like Home Party!!
 Thanks, Sandi!

This is a Brand New Party so please stop by and link up to this lovely party!!
I was driving home one day from work and I saw this table on the side of one of the dumpsters in our development........
When I got home and thought about it, I thought it would be perfect in a little space that I had been planning.......

So I sent Joe back down the hill to scoop it up!!!

It was a little rough around the edges or should I say, the top of it!!
I scraped the peeling veneer off of it......
Joe sanded it down......
Yes, this all happened in the Summer......
I think it was part of a dresser at one time....

Joe applied wood filler to the top......
Sanding it down again.......
Then it was ready to paint......
Please excuse the dark photos but it was a rainy day when I painted it in the Den......

First I applied a coat of Kilz to the table.......
I plan on painting my Bedroom furniture in the Spring and I am still undecided as to how and what colors I will use , so I decided that , for now, I would throw a coat of Antique White paint that I already had on it......
And until I can decide what knobs to use on the drawers, I used these that I had in my stash......
It doesn't look that bad now does it????
In the Summer, when re-arranging rooms, I decided to get rid of a larger table that I had in the corner of our bedroom.....
 Since I am now part time, I want to be able to enjoy a hobby that I had many years ago...

READING!!

 I wanted to create a little Reading Corner for myself in the Master Bedroom and I needed a table to fit in next to this chair by the window........
 This table fit perfectly!!
I am going to share more about my little Reading Corner in a post next week so for now, I just want to show you the table.......
You can see part of the dresser in this photo and how my Dad painted my Mother's bedroom furniture that was bought for her when she was 16 years old, by her parent's which was 80 years ago.

As I mentioned before, I plan on painting it in the Spring......

Back to the table.....
I think I may leave it antique white and paint the rest of the bedroom furniture the same.......
I am really glad that I sent Joe back down the hill to grab this table that was standing next to one of the dumpsters in our development!!
As I mentioned before, I will share more on this Reading Corner here on my Regular Blog next week........
I hope to post once a week or once every 2 weeks here on my regular blog during the Holiday Season.

I am posting regularly now over on my Christmas Blog, A Debbie-Dabble Christmas!

And you may have noticed the Christmas Tree in the corner......
Soon I will be starting my Christmas Home Tour over on my Christmas Blog,  with this Tree ......
And another one in the Master Bedroom..........
So I hope you will stop by and visit  both my Blogs again!!

 I want to wish my sister, Barb, a very Happy Birthday! Barb was born on my Dad's birthday, who would have been 96 years old today! He always said that Barb was the best gift he ever received on his Birthday! Even though he passed away 28 years ago, not a day goes by that do not think of him. Happy Birthday, Barb and to Dad, up in heaven!!
                                                         

 Thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

Guest Room Update, Part 4

Today I am going to share the final part of my tour of my Guest Room Update, Part 4!

But first, I want to thank Dorene, over at Seasonal Chapters, for mentioning my Blog in her post, More Fabric Pumpkins , where she shares more of the fabric pumpkins that she has made this season including her take on the Toilet Paper Pumpkins that I shared!!
Thanks so much, Dorene!!

And I also want to Thank Jillian, over at Bella Rosa Antiques, for featuring my post from my Christmas Blog, I've Got a Secret: October Rudolph Day, from last week's Let's Talk Vintage Party!!
 Thanks so much, Jillian!!

I also want to Thank Susan, who featured the same post from my Christmas Blog, on her Christmas Blog, Susie's Christmas Cottage, in her post, Tea in the Craft Room #4!
 Thanks again, Susan!!

Please stop by and say Hello to Dorene and Susan and link up to Jillian's great party!


Now back to the Guest Room.........
   I started this Series on my Guest Room back in August.......

As I mentioned in Part 1, I recently re-arranged this room............AGAIN!!

Click HERE to see Part 1 if you missed it.......
   Click HERE to see Part 2 if you missed it.......
Click HERE if you missed Part 3........

  It seems like I am always re-doing this room.........
   I think this time, except for having to paint a few furniture pieces next Spring, I finally have this room the way I want it.....
  We last left off here.......
 In this corner........
 With Minerva!!
Let me first explain the bird cage on the floor.......

I intended to have Joe put  hook in the ceiling in front of the window but that has not happened yet........
So the Bird Cage has gone back into storage........

Minerva used to live downstairs in the Living Room but now she is right at home in the Guest Room.....
 She is wearing a lovely hat.....
 The  bodice on her beautiful lace dress.......
She is carrying 2 fans........

One white lace and one yellow with pretty flowers on it......
She is carrying white lace gloves with a flower cameo pin on them.....
And she had her purse , which was made by a very dear friend of mine who lost her 25 year battle against breast cancer a few years ago......
I think she is right at home here in the Guest Room......
And now over to my fake fireplace.......
If you are interested in the story of this strange piece of furniture, please click HERE......
My fake "Mantle".......
If you would like to read the post on how I decorated the "mantle", please click HERE......
Now to the fake "Hearth"...........
Another pretty item made by my friend who passed away......
I placed a "Mirror Window" and a lamp inside........
Florals with battery operated lights.......
A Bear Tea Party!!
Mr. Bear.......
A Mini Tea Set that actually is in the same pattern as a set of china that I have!
Mrs. Bear........
And all lit up in the Evening......
A vintage plate hung on the wall......
And the Christening Gown worn by my Husband and my 2 sons!!
It is 61 years old now........

And that concludes the Tour of my updated Guest Room.......
 Besides having to paint a few pieces of furniture, I think it is now the way I want it!!

Maybe!!

I will let you in on a Secret........

This Room is now already decorated for Christmas.....
   Soon I will be sharing how The Guest Room is decorated for Christmas over on my Christmas Blog!!

I have started to do my Christmas posts over at A Debbie-Dabble Christmas so I hope you will "Follow" me over there too!!

I will be posting links to those Christmas posts here on this blog too!!

So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

And thanks to those who took the time out of their busy day to spend a little bit of time with me!!

If you do not have a blog, PLEASE  give me some way to reply to your comment, maybe by including your email in your comment.  If I can not find a way to reach you, I will reply on the post where you commented so please check back......
