|It's another long post referencing the recent events I keep discussing.|
Skip to the recipe if necessary :)
My mistake was that my boyfriend was my entire social life. His friends were my friends. I didn't have to worry about what I was going to do or who I was going to see, it was all done for me. If nothing else, it was me and him hanging out in his room watching tv just hanging out. When we broke up, I was suddenly way more alone than I'd initially expected. No boyfriend, no circle of friends, nothing to do and quite lonely.
|Best thing you'll ever eat for breakfast.|
Would this have happened otherwise? Maybe, but this was definitely the push I needed to get myself together and not rely on a guy for all my fun. When I'm upset I need to surround myself with positive thinking and positive people I can have fun with. I was terrified of not finding that, but I did. I am so grateful to everyone whose helped me through it all and just been there for me. And the people I've met or re-met or whatnot have been worth it, tenfold.
To all of you, friends old and new, thank you. Thank you for your support, for pulling me out of my slump, and for being there to laugh with and listen. I want to make you all cookies and cakes and four course dinners to express how much I appreciate your friendship. For all you've done for me.
How about some breakfast? After all, it IS the most important meal of the day!
I recently went to a Pampered Chef party and was way too sidetracked by all the amazing products I wanted to buy to write down how to make this crazy breakfast casserole thing they made. So I tried to use my taste-memory to recreate it, since it did not come in the recipe book I bought that day. It's a perfect blend of all the best breakfast foods and can probably be edited to be healthier and less greasy--but why on Earth would you want to do that?
(Based on a Pampered Chef recipe I cannot find anywhere)
- package of frozen hash browns (defrosted)
- 4 slices ham
- 1-2 cups shredded cheddar
- 6 eggs
- 1 package cream cheese
- 2 stalks green onion, diced
- 1 tomato, diced
-Grease a 9x9 baking dish and set oven to 350 degrees F. Crumble hash browns into bottom of dish. Top with half of the ham and cheese, then mix together.
-Whisk together eggs and cream cheese until well blended. Pour over hash browns and top with remaining ham and cheese (I added two additional eggs since I didn't think I had enough for the dish I used). Bake for 30 minutes.
-Top with onion and tomato. More cheese if you wanna.
