Recipe Review…Breakfast Casserole from Celebrate Magazine

Breakfast Casserole
4 slices wheat bread, (I used white bread)
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 sausage links, cooked and chopped (I used link sausage the first time 
the second time I used bulk sausage instead and it was far better)
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
6 large eggs, beaten
2 cups whole milk
1 tsp dry mustard
Garnish:  freshly cracked black pepper, fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.  Place bread pieces in dish.  Sprinkle bacon and sausage over bread pieces.  Sprinkle cheese over bacon and sausage.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and mustard; pour over cheese.  Bake until set in center, about 35 to 40 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Garnish if desired.
I gathered my ingredients…..
 Don't forget the milk….
 Put everything together….

I made this for a "Throw Away Women's" Brunch.  It was yummy and easy.  I would make its again.  So what do I give it on my cooking scale?  9/10 when I used the bulk sausage cooked and crumbled into the mix.  
Try a new recipe!

Monday Morning Motivation, Hope! (sharing an old post from Dec 2013)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and 
not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

While watching TV this week I heard several quotes that stood out to me which I could use in my life situation.  
This one I liked from Sleepy Hollow
"You see what you have now and you embrace what is in front of you"
Good advice Sleepy Hollow.  If you don't embrace what is in front of you, good or bad, your only other choice would be to give up. Although that can be an option, it is not the best option.

I really liked this one from Survivor
"Morality and ethical issues are going to bite you in the ass in the end."
Well said Survivor.  True?  I don't know.  Maybe not in this world. I do believe there are consequences to our actions.  That is kinda how I see the verse in the bible in relation to the sins of the father.  Our choices effect everyone.

My favorite TV quote this week, because it calls us to hope, is one from Once Upon a Time
"We had such plans.  This curse has destroyed every dream our family ever had……Life is full of twists and turns you never see coming.  This is just a turn.  The future we imagined is gone but that does not mean we couldn't find another one….an unexpected one.  I choose hope. 
Our lives will get better if we just hold unto hope"
My Scripture for the week is Jeremiah 29:19.  I will do my best to hang unto hope.
Happy Monday Everyone!
Enjoy Your World.

Caleb and Nana's Adventures…The Zoo

Off to the zoo with Caleb….

Quick stop to search for acorns before entering the zoo

Peek-A-Boo Where Are You?
There you are!

This snake looked way to real to me.  Ugg.

He called himself Helicopter Boy:-)

We rode the Merry-Go-Round twice.  First time on the giraffe, second time on the gator that "looked angry".

Passed out with his zoo toys in his hand.
What a wonderful adventure!
We had a great time at the zoo.
I can't wait till our next adventure.
Get out and explore!
Enjoy Your World.
