Expert Tips

Since these are the ultimate party food they’re worth planning ahead for. Roll them up and freeze on baking sheets until firm. Then plop them into resealable plastic freezer bags and store for up to 1 month. Bake as needed, no defrosting required, at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

What is Sausage? Nothing more than finely chopped and well-seasoned meat; sausages depend on some degree or fat in the mixture, which gives it its succulence and delicious flavor.

Offer a variety of dips when serving these up to guests. Try barbecue sauce, chili sauce a mayo/yogurt dressing mixed up with a good sprinkle of garlic salt, lots of chopped fresh herbs and more Parmesan cheese, or blend of Ranch dressing with a spoonful of basil pesto.

Lightly wet your hands to roll the balls to prevent sticking.

How to Find North Without A Compass

There are several ways to find north, and if you know just a bit about astronomy and the sky is clear, you can use the stars or even the clouds to find north. However, the sky isn’t always clear … even if you do know what to look for. So just look to the trees and remember a few simple concepts. They all boil down to the fact that in northern hemisphere, the north side of trees is usually cooler and damper than any other side — and nature responds to this fact.

Using Trees to Find North

Look for moss on the north side of trees. However , if you use this method, use it with another one as well, because shade from other trees sitting off by itself with plenty of sunlight and moss on one side? If it’s in the northern hemisphere, the mossy side of north.

The sun rises sets in the east and sets in the west. Branches and other plant life will “follow” the sun, which also means that new growth responds to it. Because of this, the north side of a tree often has fewer branches than the south side.

Although you probably don’t have any urge to get close to them, both ant hills and spider webs can be found on the south sides of the trees.

If there aren’t any trees around and you’re lost, look to other features in the area. Water runs north to south and the clouds move west to east. keep in mind that if you know which way they all are. If you have trouble remembering, north, and remember ” Never Eat Sour Wheat.”
