For all of you who have left a comment for the Eat Like a Dinosaur telling me why you want to win a copy of the cookbook…you have amazed me! I seriously wish I could give a copy to everyone. You all left me speechless on how you not only want to make steps to better your own health but the little ones in your life. It speaks mountains and I want to really thank you all for your words. You amazed me and made me realize just how wonderful you all are and how much you care about your health. You are the reason why I love to blog and to create new recipes. Thanks for inspiring and for pretty much rocking! Love you guys! Now if you haven’t entered for a chance to win a copy of Eat Like a Dinosaur you have until Sunday 12 midnight EST to enter. So go now….but come back of course so I can share this recipe with you.
Breakfast….it pretty much rules in my opinion. I love it! Not sure what I would do without a breakfast of some sort. I look forward to it….call me crazy but seriously if I could pick one meal of the day that is my very favorite…breakfast would win hands down. Now breakfast on the weekends….get out! LOVE! I usually wait a little longer on the weekends so officially my breakfast is really brunch…but honestly does it matter because you can technically have breakfast for dinner and what would that be brinner? ha! Ok, rambling. Breakfast/brunch (whatever you prefer) was what was needed this past weekend. After picking up some fabulous produce at my local green market I had a well stocked refrigerator to make this spur of the moment breakfast casserole. Everything you want in one little dish. Pretty outstanding! even better….great leftovers for those weekday mornings! That is if its not all eaten the moment it comes out of the oven. Another pretty amazing thing about this casserole is you can play around with what you put in it. I love sweet potatoes and spinach and I’m a little obsessed with both of them these days so those were magic for me in this casserole. Am I rambling again? I tend to do that when I’m over tired and stressed….yes I’m both. Life is pretty much crazy. I promise I will share soon…at least I’m hoping I can share soon. The good thing is next week is V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!!! Over the moon about taking some much needed time off from work (yes, I have a 8-5). Kids are on spring break so we are headed off for some fun filled days. Yippee! With that being said posting might be a little limited next week. I’m hoping to come back well rested and have some more recipes to share.
Oh…added the print button below so you can print the recipes. I will start adding that now to all recipes. I stopped for awhile (I was being lazy…sorry).
Ok, I’m off…have a great rest of your week and weekend and remember to enter for the Eat Like a Dinosaur Giveaway if you haven’t already.
