Okay- today is Mother's Day and though we aren't doing anything big for the day.... In fact the Pipsqueak is going to a friend's house to play later, I thought I'd post anyway.
I received a letter from my 12 year old today that I never expected. In essence she thanked me for all I do and knows that her bio parents are glad that I adopted her and are as proud of her as I am. It gave me some insight into her at this point and I am forever thankful that she shared it with me.
Talk about the best Mom's Day gift ever.... A heartfelt letter from my kid.
BTW- made the best breakfast casserole in the crock pot. Put it in last night and cooked it on low over night. It was wonderful and I can't wait to try other variations of it. Talk about easy and even the Pipsqueak ate some of it before putting frozen waffles in the toaster.
Yesterday was a great day too- as I discovered a wonderful Greek restaurant and a new favorite Italian place. I can't wait to go back and get more than pita from the Greek place and know I will be craving the homemade garlic, parmesan bread sticks from the Italian place.
So I leave you with my recipe:
I cut this recipe in half so we could make it in a 3 quart crock pot.
1/2 cup mozzarella
2 cups cheddar cheese (though I used Mexican blend)
1/2 cup milk
1 lb Italian sausage- cooked and drained
red & yellow pepper
salt, pepper, any other seasonings to taste
frozen hash browns (32oz bag)
1. Spray crock pot with non stick cooking spray
2. Layer 1/2 potatoes on bottom
3. Put layer of meat & then cheese
4. Repeat layers
5. Mix eggs/milk/salt & pepper together and pour over the top.
6. Cook on low 8 hours or 4 hours on high until eggs are set.
Next time- I think I'll make this more Mexican and add green chiles to the dish.
