Are you done entertaining yet?
Not me! After all, there’s still a little bit of holiday left, isn’t there? One more glorious day at home and I’m headed back to work, so I’ve decided to celebrate the end of the holiday season with a light and healthy brunch.
Brunch can’t get any easier than throwing together a few eggs, fresh veggies, and little creamy cheese into a casserole dish and then tossing the whole shebang into the oven, can it?
Doesn’t this look like a great way to start off the New Year? I’m happy now. We’ll see what I say tomorrow when the alarm rings at 5 am.
