Good morning everyone and happy Sunday. Now that August is here, this is where the time really flies! I will be back to school soon so I am trying to make the most of my time. First I want to share something that made me VERY happy on Amazon.com. My wishes have been granted. My most favorite craft book is coming out with a sequel! Presenting...in December...
I can't wait! You know how I loved the first book. I hope this one is as great. It looks like it will be.
I wanted to share a project I made last week. I was blog wandering, as I do in my spare time, and came across The Mother Huddle. She made the cutest fabric flip flops. What a genius and easy idea! I had to make them. Being a little more picky than the average person, I couldn't have frayed edges on my fabric so I followed her suggestion to get the sewing machine out. I used a fat quarter, which for some reason I am buying a ton of lately. I split it into 4 strips lengthwise and made tubes, right sides together. I then turned them right side out and continued with her instructions. I made only one knot instead of two. They are so light and comfortable and the sky is the limit.
Now to share a knock-out recipe with you. I made a Bisquick breakfast casserole that was pretty incredible. We had it for dinner one night because I love serving breakfast any time of day. It definitely was hearty enough for dinner. Set the oven to 375 degrees and spray a 13x9 pan with non-stick spray. Put 1/4 cup butter in prepared pan and place it in the oven to melt. Meanwhile, in a bowl, put 2 cups baking mix, 1 cup milk, and 2 eggs. Whisk until there are only tiny lumps. Pour over melted butter in pan. Layer 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese, 3 cups cubed cooked ham, 6 pieces cooked chopped bacon(or more to your taste), and 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. In a large bowl, mix 1 cup milk, 6 eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard and a dash of ground nutmeg. Pour over the whole casserole. Bake 35-40 minutes and let stand about 10 minutes before serving. It is fantastic. The leftovers were even better the next day. This would be great to bring to a brunch. Enjoy!
I wanted to show you a picture of what I saw when I was watering my garden recently. We have been using the AC alot lately so our house has been closed up tight. When we get a chance, we like to open the windows and let fresh air in so it doesn't feel so stuffy. Mickey heard noises outside and had to take advantage of the windows being opened. I talked to her the whole time I watered the garden. She has never been outside so she acts very cautious but her curiosity gets the best of her!
I hope everyone has a great week ahead. Take advantage of what is left of summer. Take care. Nancy
