Feeding people makes me happy.

Apparently, when I'm worried about people I love, I barricade myself in the kitchen for hours on end, chopping, whipping, stirring, whisking, mixing, baking.  It feels like I'm accomplishing something, and sometimes that's incredibly important. 
Banana bread, topped with dark chocolate chips for hungry hoodlums...
  Make that happy hoodlums...
Sandwiches for a big hike tomorrow...Bacon for Adrain, and veggie for me...
And then dinner... We love eggs and I'm going to show you a fun little trick we do around our house.  We make this every time we go camping and it makes a fun and easy dinner that pleases everyone-especially my man. 

Break a bunch of eggs, then whisk them in a bowl with some salt and pepper.  Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray and pour the egg mixture into the dish. 
Bake at 350 for about a half hour or until eggs are set.

Then use a biscuit cutter to create some egg rounds.  These freeze amazingly well, and they pack easily in between layers of parchment paper in ziplock bags. 

I use whole wheat english muffins.  I toast them and keep them warm.  Then I cook sausage patties in a frying pan, add a slice of cheese, top with one egg round, and put that in between one of the english muffins.  Yummy!!
Makes for a happy family... and somehow... we made it through this day.  Your prayers and encouragements went far... farther than you know... the verses you sent my way were perfect, and my man struggled much today, so please know that they didn't go to waste.  They lifted us up. 

Thank you Lord, for these amazing blog readers, family and friends who love us so... And thank you Lord, for full tummies and Your many daily blessings, needs always met.   


  1. When my husband and I are in a situation that we aren't comfortable, sure, etc. this is our prayer: God, we want to be in the center of your will. If this (whatever it is) isn't what you want for us, then show us what we should do. Make it clear to our un-seeing eyes. Beat us over the head with it, if you must. And if this is your will for us, let us rejoice in YOU in the midst of this.

  2. I am catching up on your posts as I have been busy. It's early Saturday morning and that sandwich muffin is looking quite yummy. As did that veggie sandwich and bacon sandwich. I haven't had breakfast yet. Thanks for the idea. Off to eat.
    And Amen to what Annie said from Morning Joy Farm. I will have to remember that prayer.

  3. um...if you like feeding people, then come feed ME! those sandwiches? HELLO!! you're such a diva in the kitchen...

  4. You totally have the answer to what I was wondering yesterday. We are having friends over after church one day and I was totally wondering how to make egg mcmuffins! Ha. You are so smart.

    (And since I don't cook eggs, my hubby can make these the day before.) Beautiful.


    PS LOVE the veggie sandwich.

  5. Praying for you and your family! Love the fact that you are cooking away - if we were closer I would treat you to some girl talk and Starbucks :) Be blessed.

  6. Just wondering - I made some similar egg mcmuffins for my hubby to take in the mornings (I used a muffin tin and put 1 egg in each tin). But heating them in the microwave has NOT gone well. How do you reheat the frozen eggs?

  7. Oh my goodness, I can't wait to try these out! Thanks for sharing this great tip.
