We are so looking forward to a summer visit from The Divine Miss M and grandson Luke! School will be over in just a few days and it's time to get the suitcases out, swimsuits packed and head for Texas! Maine Grandma has a few treats up her sleeve to entertain in style! Breakfast in the garden is certainly on the list. The first cup of coffee with the birds chirping and the sun rising is a beautiful way to start the morning! This divine breakfast casserole can be prepared the day before and then just popped in the oven the next morning! Perhaps this may convince them to stay a little longer!
