Sausage Dumpling Casserole

  • 1 package Jimmy Dean Sausage
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large jar sauerkraut, drained
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 cup flour

In a large pan, add sausage and onion; cook until done; add sauerkraut and allow to simmer. In a bowl combine eggs, water and flour, mix steadily until mixture is a soft dough, just right for dropping from a spoon. Bring salted water to boil in a separate kettle; drop dough by small spoonfuls into boiling water; cook for 3 — 5 minutes until done. Remove dumplings from water and add to sausage mixture; salt and pepper to taste.

Mandarin Orange Bars


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 small cans mandarin oranges (keep juice from 1 can)


  • 2 1/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 oz pkg cream cheese
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, soda and eggs in a large mixing bowl and mix well; add mandarin oranges with juice and mix into batter, breaking up the oranges. Fold in second can of oranges leaving bigger pieces of oranges in batter. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 in pan and bake for 35 — 40 minutes. Allow to cool.

Combine frosting ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat well. Hint- the longer mixture is beaten the fluffier the frosting. Spread frosting over bars and serve.

1 Gig vs 5G

Consolidated’s internet is provided by a coaxial or fiber optic cable that provides consistent performance and is less vulnerable to signal interference than a wireless connection. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), also called 5G home internet is a wireless technology. 5G signals are radio frequencies transmitted over the air, so data transmissions are less consistent than a wired connection.
