Saturday Brunch

Heading out the door, so just pix today, story tomorrow.

Made a scrumptious brunch this morning, using a recipe from our flatlander neighbors to the east at the Greasy Skillet. One of life's biggest joys is making something tasty and watching your kid devour it.

Super simple and moderately messy... The Greasy Skillet Sausage and Potato Breakfast Casserole is going to be seen in our house on weekend mornings a lot this year, I'm thinking.

Z. learned a new trick to day. We got him this gimmicky bowl that sticks to his tray with a suction cup and has a spill lip that sticks out in his general direction, sort of like an inverted fly fishing cap with an over-sized bill. Supposed to catch spills.

Well, Z. figured out that if he spills some food on the lip, presses down on it, and then releases it, he can launch the mess out into the stratosphere, catapult-like. Lovely. Now I have to keep him from watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Please, no one get him this for his birthday.

Ah yes, even the greatest of gadgets can not keep a child from making a mess when they are determined to do so. When there's a will, there's a way.

I'm glad the recipe worked for you. Your casserole looks much better than mine because you added the potatoes at the end.

Even though my daughter can be a picky eater, I like cooking for her because she lets me know when she really enjoys a meal. It's nice cooking for those who appreciate good food.
