Did you think we had forgotten about you? I cannot believe how long it has been since we have posted. Julie and I took a nice long break from the Supper Club and it was great to refresh and recharge. With the entire family home over the holidays, it was nice to just spend time together. We did a lot of nothing at all.
My girls and I have been obsessed lately with watching the Gilmore Girls series. When the revival of the show was released last November, I had several friends who went crazy. I had heard of the show, but since I didn’t watch it when it was on earlier I didn’t know what the hype was all about. My oldest daughter, home from college, had been watching and got my younger two daughters on board and they got me on board. We had several marathon days over the holiday break where we just snuggled in and binged. We are almost at the end of season 6 (there are 7 seasons) and then we get to watch the revival. I love the quirky characters and the quaint little town of Stars Hollow. There are so many references to movies, shows, music, etc. from “back in my day” that make it hilarious. In addition, it is worth watching just to make fun of the fashion choices from the early 2000’s. It’s a great feel good show.
Needless to say, most of the cooking I did once I got through Christmas day was simple. This breakfast casserole is one of those old classics that is so simple to throw together. I love that it is best made the night before baking. When we have a house full of teenagers who don’t get up very early, I can throw it in the oven when they appear or we decide they need to get up. Hope you’ve been well and I promise we will do a better job of sharing more delicious food with you.
