Mexican Breakfast Casserole

There's nothing like an easy casserole to make yourself feel like a domestic diva. It was very simple, not many ingredients, & delicious (Ryder said so). We enjoyed the casserole with a couple cups of coffee, fresh strawberries, & turkey bacon cooked by Ryder. (Turkey bacon.. not veggie, fake bacon! I will save the 'we are eating meat' post for later.)

We LOVE breakfast. It's a pretty normal thing for us to have breakfast for lunch and dinner sometimes too.
8 large eggs
6 tablespoons skim milk
2 tablespoons light butter
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 4 ounce can of green chiles -- chopped
1/2 cup diced jalepeno peppers
2/3 cup low fat, extra-sharp cheddar -- shredded

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 1. Put butter in 8" square baking pan. Set in 350 degree F oven to melt.

2. Slightly beat eggs, milk, salt & pepper. Pour into pan.

3. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until eggs begin to set.

4. Sprinkle with cheese & chiles. Draw a wide metal spatula across bottom of pan several times to break up mixture.

5. Bake, breaking up mixture again several times, for 5 more minutes or until of desired doneness.

Clayton's take southeast Texas..

This past weekend our little family (Ryder, me, & Sheldon duh) drove to Nederland for our nephews third birthday. We had lots of fun seeing everyone and just enjoying the weekend. I am sure you can tell how crafty my sister in law is. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Anniversary recap

One week ago we celebrated our one year wedding anniversary! We had the best day. We were both off of work and just got to enjoy the whole day together. Lots of good food, Capitol touring, shopping, movie watching of Frankenweenie (so funny!), and eating the top layer of our wedding cake. We are looking forward to many many more years together! :)

God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I've lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it's true
God gave me you
There's more here than what we feel
A divine conspiracyThat you, an angel lovely, can somehow fall for me
You'll always be love's great martyr
I'll be the flattered fool
And I need you
On my own, I'm only half of what I could be
I can't do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I could never undo
link to lyrics by dave barnes

I cannot believe when have been married a year already! It really has flown by. I can't imagine life any other way.. I am so excited for wherever God & life leads us in the future.

I love you, Ryder!

Ladies: There are great men out there that will treat you like an angel. It is normal to always be lifted up emotionally by your partner. Real love always makes the other person better. Anxious feelings, fighting, & criticism is not love... & it never will be.

Lunch Adventure

Just a nice little stroll on my lunch break the other day.. It was torture going back to work after being out in the breeze & sunshine. However, it did make for a better last half of the work day.

Fall Fashion

Oh I am already loving all things fall. Skinny pumpkin spice lattes, candles, decorations, & of course clothes. I haven't done any shopping in a long time, but surprisingly I think I will be trying out Old Navy soon.

Are there any current fall trends you are loving?

We had a great weekend. We went and visited Ryder's parents in Oklahoma! It was a rainy, relaxing weekend. On the way back home we got to meet up with our friend Tony who we had not seen since we moved. Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week!
