What's New and What's Cookin'

Hello and good morning!!! I hope that you are all well and having a wonderful Monday (even if you are having gloomy, rainy weather like we are here ;-) I wanted to take a moment out of my day to post a little recipe and to tell you about our week-end. We had a special house-guest here with us, our grandson Hunter! His momma called us Friday afternoon and wanted to know if he could spend the weekend with us. Well, you know me when it comes to the grandkids, I might fuss for a few minutes, but I almost always give in. I LOVE those kids!!! (I grouse a bit, just to keep their parents from thinking that old mom is a push-over~lol~now keep my secret~ssshhh ;-) We had a GREAT time on Saturday at our favorite local park, Wine Cellar in Dunbar. This is the park that Caleb and I have always called our "Hundred Acre Wood". There are wonderful paths and little bridges over the creek there, just right for playing a quick game of "Pooh sticks" when Caleb was small. The city had a "Day at the Park" event there this weekend to celebrate National Park Day and there was a fishing contest, the fire department provided a little fire pit and the fixin's for making SMORES and our police had a bicycle safety class for the kids and gave away free helmets to the kids. It was a very pleasant day! The BEST part was when Hunter caught the first fish of the day and won a Rapala fishing lure~he was THRILLED!!! We were so proud of him! Here are a couple of photos from our day:

Saturday morning I fixed a little casserole for our breakfast, just something quick and easy but it was DELICIOUS and so I thought I would share it today for my What's Cookin' recipe. Hope you enjoy it:

Quick and Easy Potato and Egg Casserole

6 slices of bread
6 eggs
1cup milk
1 15oz can sliced potatoes (or fresh potatoes sliced thin)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese
McCormick Grill Mates Garlic Onion seasoning

Spray or coat with a thin layer of oil a 9" X 11" pan (you could use a 9' x 9" pan)
Place the bread in the bottom of the pan.
Add the potaoes and spread in an even layer and then the onions.
Beat the eggs and the milk together until well blended and pour over the potatoes, onions and bread.
Top with the cheese and sprinkle with the Grill Mates seasoning to taste.
Bake for 45 minutes in an oven pre-heated to 350 degrees until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted and golden.

I am still working on those fabric yo-yos, but haven't taken any photos, yet. Will post some as soon as I take a minute to snap a couple.

Until next time, Stay Cozy!
