Recipe: Sausage, Egg, Potato, and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

As I was looking through old blog posts for recipes, I realized how much my life has changed in the past couple of years.  Of course, the littles are not nearly as little anymore.  Once they all started school, it was not necessary for me to be a stay-at-home mom anymore.  However, the fact that they are the center of all of our decisions did not change.  When I reflected on what my life was like before I had children, when I was home with children, and when, over the course of four years, they all started school, I realized that a few things had remained the same.  I love my children and my family with all of my heart, and I am passionate about education.  Becoming a teacher seemed like a very natural and logical step. As I do with everything, I have poured my heart into it.  I love teaching, and I know that it is a huge blessing that I work at the same school as two of my children, while one is still in the same district, just a quick car ride away.

I do, however, miss writing and cooking something more than what I can manage to throw together at the end of an exhausting day.  On Christmas Eve, I decided that I wanted to change that.  I want to write again, take more pictures, and continue my little online scrapbook.  It brings me so much joy, and I know that my children will love reading it one day, too.

Without even intending to do it, I developed a little breakfast casserole on Christmas Eve.  I wanted something that I could just throw into the oven with the cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning.  This breakfast casserole definitely delivered.  It will definitely become a Christmas morning tradition.

I use this space as our online scrapbook, so I really wanted to try to fill in the gaps from the past 18 months. Wow! I cannot believe that I took that long of a blogging break. I hope that you have a spectacular 2016!
