I have been making this Amish Breakfast Casserole for years and had the ugliest photos of it on the blog. You really couldn’t tell what a fantastic meal for any time of day it is from my garbage photos. 

I made it twice this past weekend. Once to update the photos and then again when my kid that was at a sleepover came home and was upset that I made it while he was gone. We had no leftovers either time. 

And if you just love breakfast casseroles as much as I do, my Loaded Grits Casserole is another one we love.

We’ve reached the point of absolute end of the school year chaos.

Between end of year projects and exams and soccer and 7-on-7.

I’m done.

I’m ready to not have to worry about who needs a Benjamin Franklin costume and who needs a terrarium. I’m over stressing out about 2 soccer practices on the same night at the same time in 2 different cities.

I need a vacation.

I’m really relying heavily on no fuss 20 minute dinners like this Parmesan Pasta with Bacon and Peas.

I’m going to start this post by saying that my 6 and 8 year olds ate zucchini noodles for the first time because of this chicken.

Like, pulled it out of the fridge and asked if they could have it. For their after bath, pre-bedtime snack.

Yeah.

That sauce will change your life. Or at least change your opinion of zucchini noodles.

I mean, it’s got butter, heavy cream, and two kinds of cheeses so how can it not be delicious?!

How do you feel about dyeing egg?

I’m an only child so dyeing eggs was fun for me. I got to do all the eggs my mom was willing to sacrifice to the cause, I didn’t have to fight with anyone over colors, no one wanted to chitchat as I expertly drew “I <3 [insert random boy name] with the clear crayon on each and every egg.

I have 3 kids.

Which means I’m buying 3 of the exact same kit because lord knows I wouldn’t survive buying 3 different ones because someone will definitely feel like they lost out by not getting the glittery dinosaur kit. And I can’t just buy one kit and have them share. That would be even worse.

And the anxiety I feel by having 12 cups of colored water on my counter with 3 boys flailing around?

Nope.

We dye eggs every year though. I’m yelling “I’m doing this alone next year!” by the end, but at least I do it, right?

We’re not going to talk about this crust.

Okay, fine, we’ll talk about it.

So I didn’t use my regular crust recipe because it calls for, like, 5 cups of flour and this was Spring Break and I’m not about to take all my kids to the grocery store for flour. So I used a recipe that sounded delicious – I mean, honey wheat pizza crust? That only needs 2 3/4 cups of flour?

Sold.
