Me & My Broom & Back To Work Today

 Hey Blogland! I had a wickedly awesome two days off from the job. Got some stuff done I wanted to get finished & started some others. It was a nice time off but productive also. What more could a Witch ask for? My Broom was waiting for my alarm to go off this AM & when I went to hit the snooze button, he knocked my hand away. Message from that? "Get your butt up & take me places in Blogland". Okay, but there was coffee first.

Christmas Breakfast In July & Other Months Too

 Hey Blogland! I have been seeing tons of posts on Christmas in July. I have a hard enough time getting the Hubs to get the Holiday ornaments out for me in December let alone in July. Plus since the move, I am not really sure just where all the decorations have been scattered to. (you can give a man a sharpie but you can't make him mark a box) So I have decided to share with you our favorite Holiday breakfast. I used to just serve this on the morning of the 25th but one year I decided, "what the heck, we love this dish so I am gonna make it more often". The best thing is you can freeze it in individual servings & pull one out of the freezer when ever you get the hankering for it! I will show you now.......The Breakfast Casserole.


 I usually end up doubling or tripling this recipe since I am making a bunch to freeze. Here is the single batch recipe. Just double the ingredients to make a bigger batch.

This single recipe will  require a 9x13 baking pan

 Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. roll of breakfast sausage (hot or mild it is up to you)
  • 1 box stove top type stuffing. (I prefer pork flavored but could only find chicken this time)
  • 8 med to large eggs
  • 1-8oz. bag of shredded cheese ( again, your preference)
  • 1/4 can evaporated milk



Start by cooking your sausage & braking it up into the smallest crumbles you can while cooking






 While that is cooking, mix your stuffing in a bowl with 1-1/2 cups warm water (no need to prep this on the stove, just let it moisten up)






 Spray your pan with a non-stick coating





Once your stuffing mix is moist & your pan is coated, evenly spread out the stuffing on the bottom of your baking pan





 ( I am making a triple batch this time so yes, the pan is freakin' huge. One thing about having had your own cake business at one time is that you end up owning lots of huge pans)

 Once your sausage is cooked. Drain it well & add to the top of the stuffing layer




Now you are ready to crack some eggs & mix them up with the evaporated milk




 Oh my...you will have this sometimes when you buy store brand....smh




Don't freak over the amount of eggs, I am making a triple batch here






Add the evaporated milk & start beating together with your eggs. Or if you are lucky & have found your mixer since your 1,100 mile away move, use that just to get everything nice & mixed.





Pour this over your sausage & stuffing making sure to get it as even a possible. It will settle but you want this evened out for the next step.





 It should look like this above


 Next grab your shredded cheese & sprinkle on the top of the egg mixture



 Now place this in the fridge for at least an hour to set


Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour. Check it after a half hour to make sure it is not burning. Test with a butter knife. It should come out clean although maybe a bit greasy. The edges should be pulling away from the sides of the pan a bit.





The Hubs could not wait for breakfast. We ended up having this for dinner last night. The rest is cut up & in the freezer except for the 2 servings my Hubs set aside in the fridge for him to eat today sometime. (oh yeah, & a plate of this that I am taking into work today cause they have been dying to try this & have been asking me if I have made it yet since I told them about it.)
    
This is great to have in the freezer. So much more tastier than most of the frozen breakfast entrees you can buy. Enjoy!

The Hubs Got Busy

 Hey Blogland. The Hubs got busy today trimming back the Holly tree in our back yard. Yeah, I know they are supposed to be bushes but this one was way out of hand. Here, check it out for yourself. I wouldn't lie to you.








Yeah, that is a Holly bush growing higher than the garage roof







 The Hubs borrowed my new step ladder to tackle this monster bush








 Implements of destruction







 Pile O' Stuff







 More





 & more






 Check out difference!






 He discovered a bird's nest in the bush. Nobody appeared to be living in it but we left it be anyway. Maybe the Robins will use it for the next nesting seeing as they can get to it now.





Here the Hubs is showing how big the top most section was that he took off. It's a freakin' tree in itself!





 Same section, same Hubs, different pose.


 Now he is all full of tiny little holes where the Holly leaves got him. I'm gonna see if he will let me connect the dots & see if it makes a picture of anything. He more than likely won't let me near him with the sharpie marker. Guess I'd better wait til he is asleep to try that.

Me & My Broom & Is Every Season The Rainy Season In PA.?

 Hey Blogland. Yes, it has been raining again here in PA. Lots & lots of rain. The Sun is out right this moment but the weather forecast for today? Thunder storms just like yesterday & the day before & before that. I do know now that not every season in PA. is the rainy season. At least one season is the snowy season! (ugh) My Broom wanted to head out over the mountains before it started storming again & I was more than ready to agree with his logic. So.....off we went!

Mrs. Lovett Finally Gets Her Spot

 Morning Blogland! I finally have my Mrs. Lovett paper doll collection on display. I thought this day would never arrive. I am so excited to share the "unveiling" with all of you!






 When I first "finished" her she looked good to me but over time she began to look a bit boring & drab.


So, I gave her a makeover.






I perked up her border with some purple.



Found some decorative stuff for her to hang with but first had to make them more her style.





 Before.






After.






Now, the total package!











 Here she is. Hanging on a wall in my living room along with the sconces & mirrors I redid in black. The Hubs likes it! Can you believe it?!?!? I am loving this spot in the living room. Maybe someday I will be able to love the rest of the living room!

 Thanks for sticking by me through this whole ordeal. I really appreciate the support from all of you. You my Blogland friends, are wickedly awesome!
