An Oldie But A Goodie

This is something I have literally been making f.o.r.e.v.e.r! I think the first time I did, Alex wasn't even eating solid food yet, because I remember him eyeing it while he was eating his pureed sweet potatoes and squash! Technically this is of course, perfect for breakfast or a weekend brunch, but like so many other dishes that fall into those categories, we have only ever eaten it for supper! It's a great weeknight meal that will have your family thinking you spent all day preparing it, when really, in about 15 minutes it can be baking in the oven while you are doing other things! I don't know about you, but this time of the year is seems to get busier and busier each year; and I don't even realize it until I'm smack dab in the middle of another hectic schedule trying to fit everything in, wondering where the time is going. And I know so many of you are in the same boat, just trying to get everything done, and still maintain somewhat of a normal schedule. In fact, I just told someone yesterday "Between everyday life, the holiday craze, and Adam's brother's wedding 4 days after Christmas, it's to the point when people ask to make plans with us I respond with 'Sure, we'll see you in 2013.'" So I love knowing that will just a little prep work, supper is working in the oven while I take those precious minutes and multitask. But, if you are planning on lots of visitors during the holidays, and they insist on eating other meals besides supper, (just kidding) definitely keep this one in mind for Christmas morning...or the day after...or the day after that....you never know how long they will stay!
