Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head
There is a wintry mix outside my window this morning dear ones! Time to ease out of a comfy warm bed, donn the flannel robes, pull on the cashmere socks and paddle downstairs to make the coffee. Did I say "paddle?" Oh dear, I am afraid so.....do we all paddle as we grow older? Well, somedays we do..it's darn cold up here in the village today! Old bones require warmer weather I am afraid! Perhaps we won't "paddle" in Texas!
It does appear quiet and peaceful in the early morning hours, though, doesn't it?
Weekday mornings are often so busy, with hubby going off to work and children preparing for the school day! Estelle's always has great ideas to make your life somewhat easier and get your days off to a great start! Put together this make-ahead breakfast casserole. Simply pop it in the oven for a hot and hearty breakfast with no fuss at all! Your family is gonna love you for it!
