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.

Hi guys, I don’t usually post on the weekends but I’ve been holding onto the photos for this Loaded Baked Potato and Cauliflower Soup for weeks now and wanted to get it post while the weather is terrible and we’re all freezing.

I had plans today, got all the kids in the car, and then immediately drove home after putting gas in the car because I literally couldn’t.

Too cold for me.

Everyone keeps saying, “Amanda, it’s February, of course it’s cold” but y’all, last February I was wearing sleeveless dresses in New Orleans during Mardi Gras and not complaining about it being too cold to have a Jeep.

Summer needs to hurry.

Heeeey guys, happy short week! Who’s excited?!

You know what I’m excited about right now? We’ve got a high of 80-something most days this week which means I can finally get back to hiking.

I haven’t gone for a hike since May. That’s a long time for me to stay out of the woods. It’s just been so hot even if I get up super early. The one time I tried to take the boys for a hike this summer, we ended up just sitting in a creek.

Like, actually sitting in it. Fully clothed.

ANYWAY.

The second week of school officially starts today for us. So let’s talk easy breakfast ideas.

Bacon Cheddar Mashed Potatoes – the perfect side dish for every meal! These potatoes are loaded with sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions!

 

So if you follow me anywhere, you know I was in Austin at BlogHer Food all weekend. It’s a conference for food bloggers where we all talk about what annoys us about our job and then we eat everything in the city.

And, in case you’ve ever wondered, I am horrible at conferences. (Very good at the eating part though.)

I showed up for 3 things the entire conference. And only stayed the full time for 1 of those.

Sitting still is hard for me, y’all.

Also, I sat down with a group of girls I didn’t know for the closing keynote and they asked if I had a business card.

And I didn’t.

I mean, do I seem like the kind of girl that carries business cards?

Anyway, one of the girls said, “Aww, you must be a new blogger!”

So that was kind of how the conference went for me.

I did get to hang out with friends that I’ve only ever known over the internet which was honestly the only reason I went to begin with so that totally made up for the conference being… ahem… lame.

And also there was lots of food!
