Breakfast !!!

We usually only make big breakfast on the weekends and most of the time we do it together - I love cooking as a family.

I had some apples that needed to get used up so I goggled a recipe for apple pancakes and found one for a puffed oven apple pancake. It was delish and more like a egg custard. I tried to turn it onto a plate and had no luck. But it still lasted really yummy. I served it with some homemade apple sauce and bacon and sausage. Shawn Uncle D stopped by on his way home from a date to join us and said he loved it. I love cooking for other people. That how you can tell if I like ya is if I will cook for you. The recipe I found on . I have found a bunch of recipes on that site. I go there often. I also got the recipe for the homemade apple sauce there.

On Sunday we made a breakfast casserole that we make often - We had some ham that needed to be used up so we put that in it. We have made it with bacon and sausage before and I really think I like it with the bacon best. I have made this when we first for to FL for Shawn's family - there was I think 12 of us. Everyone loved it. it also reheats well. We also had fresh pineapple that was really good. I think I should freeze some of it. Like I said this is one I use often and got the recipe off of a board I get on called cooking for your family.

Hope ya enjoy !!!
