  • I have never been a salesperson, and I probably never will try to sell anything I come in contact with. However, there is one exception to that rule of mine. Ask me about my wonderful state, New Mexico, and I can always get on a “promote New Mexico” bandwagon.

    I grew up in North Carolina, where sausage meant spicy sage breakfast meat and was mostly sold as bulk meat, then made into patties. Delicious, but more of a side meat than a meal.

    When I moved to Chicago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of German, Polish and Italian sausages. I quickly fell in love with sausages of all kinds, and though they are popular all year long, they are my favorite way to celebrate fall.
