That one time I posted to Instagram that this recipe would be up in action by the end of the weekend and.. it wasn’t. Input face to palm.
Please, please, PLEASE forgive me! I just wanted a better photo of it for you. I know, who cares about the photo as long as it tastes delicious? Well, apparently everyone according to the 3 hours of YouTube videos I watched recently. Heh.
How was your weekend, kitten!?
Our weekend was out of this world. We spent it celebrating my brother’s birthday which means, I got all of the snuggles from my perfect nephew, Jaxon. Pure bliss. It is so incredible how quickly babes grow. Jaxon is four months old and he has the personality quadruple his age. I mean, he melts my heart. He is also 16 pounds of love and his smiles do things to my soul that I never in a million years, forever, thought was possible. I didn’t even know this love could exist. For the first time in my entire life, I totally saw it. Which is gigantic. That is more of the strange part for me. I am the baby of my family and the 4th youngest cousin between the two sides. My youngest cousin is 5 years younger than me. I did not grow up around babies or children. I was the child. I never cared for younger siblings or beings. I was cared for. This factor has lead to the most awkward experiences of my life. Especially now that we are in the realm of children.
I just have never exactly known what to do.
I am the worst.
When it’s a baby, parents are super proud and they just expect you to visit them, sit on their couch, and stare at their child for hours. If we’re being honest, babes aren’t all that attractive. I don’t want to stare at your child.
I want a margarita.
When they become toddlers, conversation is popping. Except, the only ones that can understand them are their parents because they haven’t learned to use their tongues yet.
Children, I got.
7-8 years plus, we’re best friends. I ask how they are, they reply, we fist bump and have ice cream. Better yet, we go to Main Event, play laser tag, collect tickets in the arcade, laugh with our mouths full, and depart with a great nights rest ahead.
However, Jaxon is special. Which I understand is mostly because he is my brother’s child and I’m naturally most comfortable with my family. I suppose I am biased too. He’s just so handsome. He has this full head of hair that is pushed to the side and this incredible smile with two little baby dimples. He’s like this little man!
Goodness, I could go on for days! The entire point of that overly mushy mush is to share that Jaxon is my heart and I realized this weekend that if I can have the love I feel for him, I can not wait to experience the emotion I will feel for future Hoot babes.
Quick emphasis on “future”.
Don’t get too excited, parents!
I spend too many mornings fasting only because I was too lazy to plan ahead. This casserole is exactly what works for me. I cook it in a large casserole dish and once it’s cooled, I wrap each serving in plastic wrap and freeze them. Each morning I grab one on my way out and by the time I am ready to eat (about 3 hours), it’s essentially thawed and from there I microwave it for 30-45 seconds. The protein and fat keep me satisfied for hours.
This casserole will be perfect for your weekend brunch parties or even the holiday mornings! Yes, I am dreaming of Christmas morning already!
I hope you have the happiest day ever!
