Breakfast at 10... p.m.


Sometimes it is good to do something
different.
As Natalie and I were sitting together yesterday
afternoon, watching The Waltons with the
family, we exchanged a look of
hunger at the yummy
breakfast Mrs. Walton was feeding her
brood.
"That sounds amazing, doesn't it?"


So we decided, then and there,
that tonight we would do something
different.
And it was easy to convince Jessica to
join us.


That evening, Nat and I ran to
Dollar General across the
street five minutes before
closing to get 
Orange Juice, then,
after all of the "littles" had
gone to bed,
we three older girls
set about the
kitchen.


We decided on the following
menu:
Scrambled Cheesy Eggs
Turkey Bacon
Biscuits with Butter and Jam
Orange Juice
Coffee


Jessie took charge of the eggs.
She made enough to feed an
army...
or at least three crazy girls.
(And their Mom who got
excited and decided to
join them!)


We cranked up the
music,
grateful that the kids sleep
upstairs,
and danced around the
hardwood floors,
laughing and
cooking.


I was in charge of the
biscuits.
My favorite recipe:
Bisquick and
Milk.
Very complicated,
I know, but
well worth it!


Just as a side note...
and totally unrelated to
cooking breakfast at
night:
Fuzzy socks are either very
fun or quite
hazardous on
slick floors.


While the
biscuits were baking,
I also heated water for our
coffee.
Coffee-bag singles are
wonderful when you
don't want to
dirty the
coffee pot.
:-)


Natalie and Jessica took
turns with the
bacon and watching
Bekah
(who loved being wide
awake last night).


We also took turns with the
camera...
demonstrating our skill with
photography and our
natural loveliness.
:-P


Goofing off with siblings is so much fun...
"Open your mouth and
close your eyes!
You'll get a great
surprise!"

No... I didn't
feed the batter to
her.
Bekah looks like she would
try it though.


The eggs... ready to
serve!


Biscuits... yummy!
The jam was
homemade too!


The finished product
spread on a quilt
covering the
bolsters in the
living room.

The rest of the
evening consisted of
eating yummy food,
drinking a lot of
OJ and
coffee, and
watching a
movie.


Amazingly fun time!
Great memories!
I highly recommend having
breakfast at
10pm!

May God bless your weekend!

I couldn't sleep last night...and got slap-happy. So we took your advice and Jessica, Cassia and I made breakfast of chocolate waffles and eggs at midnight. That was fabulous! :D
