Necessary Ingredient

When the clock says 11:29 and you are still cooking!
not actually cooking,
but putting a few things together to cook tomorrow.

 Do you remember I told you at the beginning of the year, I committed to have a group of ladies regularly for some food, fun and fellowship? Well, I did the unthinkable, the thing I said I would not do, absolutely no way, even marked it on my calendar to remind me, and I did it anyway! I said I would not agree to sub the day of , or the day before our ladies fellowship, and I did! plus I have subbed Monday and Tuesday both! Tonight and tomorrow is crunch time. I love preparing for these get togethers, I have just left myself no margin this time.

However I do want to share this absolutely wonderful recipe that I am making. We are having breakfast. Not just any breakfast. There is a BREAKFAST CASSEROLE in the fridge, and a FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE in the fridge. Ready to pop in the oven tomorrow evening. We are also bringing muffins to swap.

Hi! I am happy I found you! I'm new at this! Recipe sounds great. We were "empty nesters" until our youngest moved back after graduating from college. It is different (the empty nesting part), but not like it was before having children.They may not be living under your roof anymore, but they are always dwelling in your heart and mind!I'm sure you know that all too well! Look forward to reading more.

Why do we do that to ourselves, overcommitting and causing ourselves to rush rush rush at the last minute!? I'm known for this!

I hope everything comes together and that you even have some down time before the friends arrive.

Have a great time and thanks for the recipe. My family loves breakfast for dinner!
