Doin' the Park Thing

We went to the park yesterday. The temp was around 45 degrees. The wind was chilly though. 

 BayLea decided that it was too warm for a coat...I didn't agree but hey...I can't win that one!

We played Toilet Tag. If you were tagged, you had to squat with your arm out as the flusher. If someone flushed you, you could get up and continue to play.

Kathleen and I went out to take pictures for winter. This one was one of my favorites. BayLea was getting a little silly by now! But I love the look on her face!

And some of my other favs! I love that girl. Even if she isn't really wanting her picture taken (like today) she still does an awesome job!

Again, thank you to Kathleen and all her props!

Overnight Egg & Sausage Casserole

This is seriously the yummiest morning sausage casserole I've ever had. Flavors blend perfectly!

6 slices of bread, 1 inch cubes
10 eggs, beaten
2 cup milk
3 cups cheese (I use a mix of sharp cheddar and pepper jack
1 lb browned sausage (sometimes I mix regular and hot sausage
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp. dried mustard
1/2 can - 1 can of green chilies

Place cubed bread on bottom of a greased 9x13 inch pan. Spread sausage and cheese over bread. Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and chilies in a bowl and pour over sausage and cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Italian Roast Beef recipe for the crockpot

This isn't my recipe, but one I got from a twopeasinabucket gal, who calls herself Burning Feather. It really is a yummy recipe and so I don't want to have to hunt it down every time I want to make it!

Mix in Crockpot:
1 (1.25 oz) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 t. oregano
1 t. red pepper flakes
1 t. basil
1 t. dried parsley
1 large clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup water

Place on top of mixture:
3 lb chuck roast

Cook on high all day, or until meat is tender.  Turn it over every now and then if you can!

Yum, yum!
