One sausage or two

A while ago we established by general agreement that it is acceptable to eat cold leftover pizza for breakfast. Maybe you don't agree or didn't back then.

Here in Australia at what I refer to as the big green hardware shed, at weekends there are normally charity fundraisers for different organisations each day. Funds are raised by selling a single barbequed sausage in a roll, with or without fried onions and your choices of a few sauces, at times used to give it some taste as quality of the sausages varies, as does the skill of the chef. They also sell cans of soft drink (pop). Sorry vegos, there isn't alternative to a beef sausage.

R participates in one of these for his volunteer organisation about one or twice a year. The food is usually donated by local businesses and I think the gas is donated by the hardware store and they make two to three thousand dollars, a lot at $2.50 per sausage.

We hadn't eaten much and I think we did something ever so naughty. We bought a sausage on our way into the store and another as we left about 15 minutes later. We felt very guilty.

Has anyone else ever done this? Acceptable or gluttony?

  1. Guilt over a snosage sandwich? Never. Though I am a vego and it is decades since I have indulged. I hope you and R enjoyed them.

    1. EC, we certainly did enjoy them and they were really good snosages.

  3. There's a really excellent veg sausage here, I think it's all in the spices. I'd be there with the in and out sausages. Too good not to overindulge.

    1. WWW, I am sure we have good veg sausages here too, but they are not something I know about.

  4. Normal. Especially if one is hungry. My other half would not buy the second. He is Scottish and too cheap. It's why he only goes out to fixed price (cheap) Chinese Buffets!

    1. Mariebeth, and I bet like many he is cheap in some ways but not in others.

  5. One of my favourite left-over breakfasts is Chicken Curry. I always make too much, and leave a good portion for my brekky. Lovely.

    1. Sausages full of fat and salt laden sauce, along with whatever is in the roll might mean a shorter life Kirk.

    2. But what's the point of living longer if you can't enjoy it?

  8. Wow, didn't realize the sausage sizzle would make that much money. I only remember eating it once or twice, but mainly because we don't visit the hardware store at lunchtime, but it was delicious. Not gluttony at all Andrew, if you were hungry and it was delicious, why not? :)

    1. Sami, I too was surprised. I double checked with R and it is true about what they raise.

    1. Strayer, the woman who served me remembered me, and I said to her, I hoped you hadn't remembered me. For a friend would have been a good thing to say.

  10. I can't imagine why anyone would criticize you doubling your support of the charity!

  11. There is nothing to feel guilty about, in my opinion. Definitely not gluttony...if it is, I the equivalent of a pen full of pigs!

    Not that I go to Bunnings' sausage sizzles, or others, but at home when I cook sausages for myself, I definitely have more than one! I'm not going to tell you how many...just take my word for it! :)

    Neville, our butcher at our local IGA. makes the best beef sausages...and pork sausages! They are delicious!

    1. Yep! I've had left-over pizza for breakfast at times, too Nothing wrong with that, in my book!

    2. Lee, R often only eats one sausage when we have them for dinner, but later will fill up with biscuits, crisps or whatever. He would be better having two or three sausages. Local butcher made sausages! How good is that.

  16. Perfectly acceptable with no need to feel guilty. After all, you're supporting a charity.

    1. River, yes charity. I seem to recall that you were not averse to pizza for breakfast.

  17. Back in 2017 people kicked up a stink after a Bunnings BBQ served up meat free sausages.
