Super-Storm Sandy Sausage

Get your mind out of the gutter and onto the grill.

Want to hear what a good neighbor my husband is? He graciously grilled up our across the street neighbor’s 500 pounds of sausage to save it all from being wasted. Personally, I think that – as someone who doesn’t eat these tubes of meat – I am actually the good neighbor.

If anyone has some lentil soup or veggie chili that needs eating, I’m happy to heat it up on my gas stove.

  1. Sounds just like my life: vegetarian married to a carnivore. My husband would so love to grill up 500 pounds of sausage! I do cook meat for him, but who knows if it’s good since I don’t taste it for seasoning, etc. Glad y’all are okay!

  2. “Mmmmmm….sausage…..” said in my best Homer Simpson voice.

    Your hubby sounds like quite a fella, and you ARE a great neighbor too. How did you stomach the smell? Must have really grossed you out.

    Happy to hear you are safe and returning to normal.

    It took me several months after Hurricane Ike to look a piece of BBQ in the eye. Blocks and blocks of neighbors grilling because it was the only way to cook anything (even with a gas stove, your kitchen power was out) and all the restaurants were closed. Even half-starving, however, I managed to avoid anything sausage-y.

  4. How nice! I guess you still don’t have power. Neither do we #lovemygenerator but getting tired of being housebound due to gasoline situation!

    • WE have power. The other side of my block does not. We have a family of five + one dog sleeping upstairs. And we’re expecting another family of four to come tomorrow and use our first floor if power’s not back by tomorrow. That will mean we’re basically back to apartment living…the way life should be!

  5. How long does it take to grill 500 pounds of sausage? And why does your neighbor have that much sausage? I mean, who DOES that? Eh…that’s a lotta meat-tubes. What does one DO with so much meat?

    Although I do eat some meat, I am not a sausage fan, because I can never really understand what exactly is in it.
    I really hope your power comes back on soon! Not just for the sake of the sausage, either πŸ™‚

    500 pounds?! Holy cow, that is a lot of meat. They actually look pretty good, and I’m not a big sausage fan (I so want to make an inappropriate joke there…).

    • I was quite restrained in my innuendo, which is unusual for me. πŸ™‚ IT wasn’t 500 pounds, but it may as well have been to me. And HA! to the “holy cow.” Although I think it’s more like holy pig.

  8. I really want to know who ate all that sausage! Because sure, cooking it keeps it from going bad raw, but you still have to eat it.

    Holy cow, I didn’t realize how hungry I was until I saw this photo. And good for you on being a good neighbour!

    Wow! That’s a lotta sausage… You are lovely neighbors. I made lentil soup yesterday, but I’m guessing you don’t want to come to Iowa to eat it.
