Merry Christmas Brunch



Once in royal David's city,
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a mother laid her baby
In a manger for His bed:
Mary was that mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little child.


Merry Christmas!



Good morning, dear ladies. How are you? I pray that you are enjoying this fine Christmas morning.

This year, we opted to stay home for Christmas. We did enjoy FaceTime with the children and grandchildren this morning. We hope to visit them soon. ♥


We also enjoyed a new brunch recipe! Thank you, Falon!! It as delicious!


This dish is layered with hash brown potatoes, diced scallions, diced sweet peppers, diced green chilis, diced ham, and shredded cheese. Repeat, cover, and refrigerate. I prepared this last night. Then this morning, all I had to do was beat two eggs, salt, pepper, and 12 oz of evaporated milk. I poured this on top of the potatoes etc. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Uncover and bake 5 additional minutes. Enjoy!

No washing dishes today (at least not many dishes!). Instead:


Blessings to your day!

  1. We also had a quiet day at home with some face time to see what Santa brought the Grimmlins. We did go out to see Mary Poppins. It was so fun and the perfect ending to the day.

  2. I've made casseroles like that for our Christmas breakfasts in past years. They are easy to throw together and delicious too. This year we had french toast and fresh fruit. Love those festive paper plates.

    1. Beca, I love French toast! Were you able to make it ahead of time? I have a recipe somewhere that you assemble it the night before and bake it. It is good!

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
