Jimmy Dean--"Thirty Years of Sausage, Fifty Years of Ham"

Posted: Aug 10, 2010

Jimmy Dean, who died on June 13 of this year, would have been 82 years old today, August 10.  In honor of his birthday, I prepared his fabulous low fat turkey sausage for breakfast. To tell the truth, I have Jimmy Dean turkey sausage whenever I can get it. JImmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage has only 60 calories per patty and has 60% less fat than regular pork sausage. Is that a deal or what? In my book, there is nothing better than a hearty breakfast sandwich of whole grain bread, turkey sausage, egg, tomato, and avocado. Jimmy Dean turkey sausage makes me smile.

Jimmy Dean did not start out as a sausage magnate. He was born in poverty in Plainview, Texas, and dropped out of school at the age of 16 to help support his mother. It was his mother Ruth who taught him to sing and play music. While serving in the Air Force in Washington, DC, he began his musical career. His ballad "Big Bad John" recorded in Nashville, TN, in 1961 sold one million copies and won Dean a Grammy Award in 1962. Dean went on to record some forty country and crossover songs, including the popular "The First Thing Every Morning," "PT 109," and "A Thing Called Love." He also appeared on numerous television shows during the sixties and in several movies in the seventies.

In 1969 Jimmy Dean and his brother Don founded the Jimmy Dean Meat Company. This lucrative enterprise was purchased in 1984 by Consolidated Foods (Sara Lee Company). Dean's success as an entrepreneur made it possible for him to donate one million dollars to Wayland Baptist University in his hometown of Plainview in 2008.

In 2004 Dean published his frank and forthright autobiography entitled Thirty Years of Sausage, Fifty Years of Ham, and 2010 he was inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN.

Dean was interred in a piano-shaped mausoleum on his estate in Varina, VA. The inscription reads "Here Lies One Hell of a Man."  RIP Jimmy Dean.

Tom was introduced to ugg boots clearance the Judge; but his tongue was tied, his breath would hardly come, his heart quaked -- partly because of the awful greatness of the man, but mainly because he was her parent. He would haveugg boots clearance liked to fall down and worship him, if it were in the dark. The Judge put his hand on Tom's head and called him a fine little man,kids ugg boots clearance and asked him what his name was. The boy stammered, gasped, and got it out:

THE GHOST HAS ATTAINED the southernmost point of the arc she is describing across the Pacific, and is already beginning to edge away to the west and north toward some lone island, it is rumored, where she will fill her water-casks before proceeding to the season's hunt along the coastugg boots clearance of Japan. The hunters have experimented and practiced with their rifles and shotguns till they are satisfied, and the boat-pullers and steerers have made their sprit-sails, bound the oars and rowlocks in leather and sennit so that they will make no noise when creeping on the seals, and put their boats in ugg boots clearanceapple-pie order, to use Leach's homely phrase.His arm, by the way, has healed nicely, though the scar will remain all his life. Thomas Mugridge lives in mortal fear of him, and is afraid to venture on deck after dark. There are two or three standing quarrels in the forecastle. Louis tells me that the gossip of the sailors finds its way aft, and that two of the telltales have been badly beaten by their mates. He shakes his head dubiously over the outlook for the man Johnson, who is boat-puller in the same boat with him. Johnson has been guilty of speaking his mind too freely, and has collided two orugg boots clearance three times with Wolf Larsen over the pronunciation of his name. Johansen he thrashed on the amidships deck the other night, since which time the mate has called him by his proper name. But of course it is out of the ugg boots clearancequestion that Johnson should thrash Wolf Larsen.

There being nothing else for it, ugg boots clearancethey filed out, and Merry led them to the path that he had discovered. Everywhere the reeds and grasses were lush and tall, in places far above theirugg boots clearance heads; but once found, the path was easy to follow, as it turned and twisted, picking out the sounder ground among the bogs and pools. Here and there it passed over other rills, running down gullies into the Withywindle out of the higher forest-lands,ugg boots clearance and at these points there were tree-trunks or bundles of brushwood laid carefully across. The hobbits began to feel very hot. There were armies of flies of all kinds buzzing round their ears, and the afternoon sun was burning on their backs. At last they came suddenly into ugg boots outleta thin shade; great grey branches reached across the path. Each step forward became more reluctant than the last. Sleepiness seemed to be creeping out of the ground and up their legs, and falling softly out of the air upon their heads and eyes. Frodo felt his chin go down and his head nod. Just in front of him Pippin fell forward louis vuitton outleton to his knees. Frodo halted. 'It's no good,' he heard Merry saying. 'Can't go another step without rest. Must have nap. It's cool under the willows. Less flies!' Frodo did not like the sound of this. 'Come on!' he cried. 'We can't have a nap yet. We must get clear of the Forest first.' But the others were too far gone to care. Beside them Sam stood yawning and blinking stupidly.

Smaug lay, lv bagswith wings folded like an immeasurable bat, turned partly on one side, so that the hobbit could see his underparts and his long pale belly crusted with gems and fragments of gold from his long lying on his costly bed. Behind him where the walls were nearest could dimly be seen coats of mail, helms and axes, louis vuitton outletswords and spears hanging; and there in rows stood great jars and vessels filled with a wealth that could not be guessed. To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. ugg boots clearanceThere are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. Bilbo had heard tell and sing of dragon-hoards before, but the splendour,ugg boots clearance the lust, the glory of such treasure had never yet come home to him. ugg boots clearance His heart was filled and pierced with enchantment and with the desire of dwarves; ugg boots clearance and he gazed motionless, almost forgetting the frightful guardian,ugg boots clearance at the gold beyond price and count.
