I think I will give it a try at our Halloween Breakfast DOG
1 deep dish pie crust
1 lb. sausage
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 cup half and half
onion powder - optional - season to taste
Brown sausage with onion powder and drain. Mix sausage and cheese together and pour into pie crust. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over sausage/cheese mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown on top.

The movie starts at 6 p.m. with seating for 120 people on a first come-first serve basis. You can come to the museum dressed as Teddy Roosevelt, a mummy, a dinosaur, security guard or other characters from the movie. Or you can come as yourself and enjoy the fun.

This looks like fun, I wish I could be there. Maybe some of you can go and have fun for me!

Flu hype, have you heard enough yet?
