Welcome to the belated weekend blog featuring brunch, movies, give away results, and birthday shoe shenanigans!!
Whoops! I had so much happening this weekend that this has been my first chance to sit down and catch up on the old blog. I will start off by saying I did have a successful “on plan” weekend with my diet. Weekends are always a bit tricky in that we tend to relax a bit and sometimes relaxing leads to some “relaxed” decision making. I always tend to indulge more than I should so I made a conscious effort to keep my eye on the prize this weekend.
Friday night I started the prep work for Saturday’s “Sparkling Brunch”. I knew my morning would be tight so I wanted a main dish that required little to no work on the day it needed to be served. A breakfast casserole seemed like the perfection option. It could be 100% prepped the night before, feeds a ton of people, and is a total crowd pleaser. Also note you could modify this for a healthier option with turkey sausage, egg whites, and loading it up with veggies! I certainly plan to make it that way for the hubs and I next go around!! As for cooking for a crowd- I always keep in mind that others are not on the same restrictions I am. I am glad to fix a “crowd pleaser” and then only have small portion or avoid it all together.
Crowd Pleaser Breakfast Casserole
Step 1: Brown up 1 pound of breakfast sausage (you could sub turkey here and toss in tons of veggies)
And speaking of the next morning, I was up EARLY prepping the rest of the sparkling brunch. Coffee was made, mimosas mixed, fruit salad tossed, and appetizers set before the ladies started to arrive. (Bonus points if you have ever heard the term “jezebel sauce” before. My northern pals just looked at me like I grew a second head)!
And in a total 180 we scooted over to see Draft Day which we both really loved! After the hour long drive home, the hubs and I ended the weekend with Game of Thrones and I was out! Whew! And just like that…it was Monday!
