Veteran’s Day, Holiday Recipes and Frugal Thanksgiving – HBHW Newsletter
November 11th 2009
Happy Veteran’s Day!
I’m about to head to my daughter’s school for their annual Veteran’s Day Salute, but wanted to get the newsletter out to you first. You’ll notice a bit of a patriotic theme in today’s inspirational quote and story.
A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone that submitted a holiday recipe. The Holiday Recipe Section is growing nicely and I’m in the process of moving all the recipes that were submitted by readers two years ago to this section as well. I’m hoping to be done with that sometime tomorrow.
Of course there’s still time to submit your own favorite recipes. Just click on the link below and fill out the form to share your family’s favorite Holiday recipes with all of us here at HillbillyHousewife.com.
That’s it for this week. As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

News From The HBHW Club
This is a new section of the newsletter. Each week I’m going to share some tidbits of what’s going on at the HBHW Club with you. I hope you enjoy these extra tips, recipes and ideas and of course would love to have you join the club.
As a HBHW newsletter subscriber, you can join for only $10 per month here: http://www.hillbillyhousewifeclub.com/special.html
And to make it even easier, I’ll let you try it out for just a dollar for the first 7 days.
Here’s one of the recipes that were submitted this past week.
Sausage & Egg Crescent Casserole
* 1 (8 oz) pkg refrigerated crescent rolls
* 1 (8 oz) pkg breakfast sausage links, thawed and cut into little pieces
* 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
* 4 eggs
* 3/4 cup milk
* 2 Tbsp chopped green bell pepper
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/8 tsp black pepper
* 1/4 tsp oregano
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Pop open the crescent rolls and roll out. Place in 9×13 inch baking pan, laying evenly over the bottom and inching the dough up onto the sides, about 1/2 inch, in order to form a crust. Pinch the perforations closed and press the dough firmly down in the pan.
Place the sausage pieces over the crust and sprinkle the cheese on top. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the cheese.
Bake in 425 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until top becomes golden brown.
This is good for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. You might want to serve it alongside a green salad for dinner.
And here are some of the other recipes that have been added in the past few days.

- Magic Cheesecake Pie
- School Days Chow Mein

RAGGED OLD FLAG
By Johnny Cash
I walked through a county courthouse square,
On a park bench an old man was sitting there.
I said, “Your old courthouse is kinda run down.”
He said, “Naw, it’ll do for our little town.”
I said, “Your flagpole has leaned a little bit,
And that’s a Ragged Old Flag you got hanging on it.
He said, “Have a seat”, and I sat down.
“Is this the first time you’ve been to our little town?”
I said, “I think it is.” He said, “I don’t like to brag,
But we’re kinda proud of that Ragged Old Flag.”
“You see, we got a little hole in that flag there
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
And it got powder-burned the night Francis Scott Key
Sat watching it writing _Oh Say Can You See_.
And it got a bad rip in New Orleans
With Packingham and Jackson tuggin’ at its seams.”
“And it almost fell at the Alamo
Beside the Texas flag, but she waved on through.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee, Beauregard, and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on that Ragged Old Flag.”
“On Flanders Field in World War I
She got a big hole from a Bertha gun.
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp and low by the time it was through.
She was in Korea and Vietnam.
She went where she was sent by her Uncle Sam.”
“She waved from our ships upon the briny foam,
And now they’ve about quit waving her back here at home.
In her own good land she’s been abused —
She’s been burned, dishonored, denied and refused.”
“And the government for which she stands
Is scandalized throughout the land.
And she’s getting threadbare and wearing thin,
But she’s in good shape for the shape she’s in.
‘Cause she’s been through the fire before
And I believe she can take a whole lot more.”
“So we raise her up every morning,
Take her down every night.
We don’t let her touch the ground
And we fold her up right.
On second thought I DO like to brag,
‘Cause I’m mighty proud of that Ragged Old Flag.”
That’s it for this edition of the Hillbilly Housewife Newsletter. I hope you’ve had as much fun reading it as I had creating it for you. I also hope that you have found the information helpful and useful. And by all means feel free to forward the newsletter to family and friends or even better, encourage them to subscribe to it.
Do you have a question, a tip, a recipe or a story you’d like to share with us? Email it to me and I’ll include it in a future issue. Can’t wait to see what you have to say.
