I haven't done a Sunday post in ages, so today I was determined! The sun was out for awhile, but by the time I was ready, dark and dreary! Pictures are suffering!
I set the table for the two of us, 2 different shades of orange felt placemats from the $ Tree, a copperish brown charger, salad plates I got for .70 in TJM a few years ago.
Someone had gifted me the platter, so when I saw he salads, I grabbed them.
Pumpkin baker from CTS filled with grapes.
The napkins were a recent find at CTS.
8 for 1.24
Not huge, but perfect for brunch, or a casual Halloween Party. Of course, when I wash them they may shrink, so we will see.
Either they will be fine or I will be stylin' in orange hankies year round! :) I'll let you know!
I made egg and cheese hash brown potato haystacks in a recent purchase from QVC. Temptations brand, a muffin baker with rack, pie plate with rack and 4 individual bakers.
Six easy payments, so the pain is minimal! I am a QVC in the Kitchen with David junkie.
Most of the time I resist, but I gave in on this one. I will say, they didn't stick, cleaned up easily, and kept the haystacks hot.
They are red, with a brown trim, which I wasn't so crazy about! Guess I wasn't paying close attention.
I used a bag of Simply Potatoes hash browns that were on sale for .99.
Season liberally with salt and pepper, added freshly minced onions and some oil. ( I used some of the bacon fat from the bacon I had just cooked. Bad, but so good!)
Mix the potatoes, seasonings and oil together. Press into a sprayed cupcake tin, reserving some of the potato mixture for the top.
Mix eggs, I used 2 eggs and 4 egg whites, some milk , and some shredded cheddar cheese together.
Bake the potato in the muffin tins for about 10 min.
Take out, scoop egg mixture in to potato cups, and return to oven and bake till potatoes are brown and egg mixture is firm, maybe 20 mins.
I fried the set aside potatoes till very crisp and piled them on top.
Two haystacks, a piece of bacon, and toasted baguette. Pass the ketchup, a must for me, and dig in.
Add some fresh fruit,and call it done till dinner time!
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!
