The other day I walked into the library at school and they were having a breakfast birthday party for the librarian.
It was a very cute idea -- there was coffee, a breakfast casserole and a donut birthday cake!
I resisted everything at the moment . . .
A friend of mine told me, after the party, that the breakfast casserole was absolutely yummy and I needed to take a bite.
So I did.
I don't like hurting people's feelings!
She was right -- it was so yummy!
So I asked the girl who made it for the recipe.
And you know what?
She doesn't like hurting people's feelings either!
She gave me the recipe!
She said it's from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook. Those are usually good cookbooks, if you haven't heard of them before. I know the name of the casserole has got be be something different -- but I don't remember, so I renamed it!
Speaking of Gooseberry Patch, here is the website where they post a recipe each week! http://www.gooseberrypatch.com/gooseberry/recipe.nsf/f.recipeweek
