My husband and I love Sunday brunch after Mass. It's a meal we look forward to every week. We usually have over-easy eggs, bacon (of course, because what would breakfast or brunch be without bacon?), toast or English muffins, and then something a little bit sweet, like doughnuts or cinnamon coffee cake. I don't know how my husband enjoys all of that without a cup of coffee to go along with it, but he does; so he drinks his milk and I drink my coffee and everybody's happy.
Yesterday, we went a little bit off-script and had a scrumptious broccoli-egg-and-cheese Crock Pot casserole with our bacon, instead of our usual over-easy's. After spending a couple of weeks recently with my oldest son, his wife, and their twin girls out in Colorado, I have become inspired to use my Crock Pot more often. My daughter-in-law is always trying out new recipes with hers, and every time I visit I look forward to those fabulous dishes she concocts. When I got home, I made three Crock Pot meals in a row--copying three I'd had while I was out there that I couldn't wait to taste again. I would give you the recipe for this delectable egg dish, which tastes like quiche without the crust, but it's not mine to reveal. If my daughter-in-law wants to post it on her blog, "Knit 1 Pearl 2", she can do that; but I'm just going to post this picture:
"Oh, for Pigs' Sake" and "Mmmm...Bacon".) This brand of bacon is sliced extremely thick; in a one pound package there are--get ready for this--only SIX slices! So my husband had three of them...along with the two equally thick slices that were left over from the package of "Longhorn Lucy Buffalo-Style Bacon" he'd cooked up for himself last weekend while I was out in Colorado. (While the cat's away, the mouse will eat almost a whole pound of bacon by himself.) I've got to show you a picture of how this amazing bacon looks all cooked up:
So, that's the story of our decadent Sunday brunch yesterday. It was Sunday Brunch X (not ten; EXTREME--you know, like the X Games for extreme sports?). I'm still having a bit of a Sunday brunch hangover, if you must know the truth!
P.S. Are you impressed with all the links I put in this post? Can you tell that I just learned a new computer/blogging skill?
