Big Saturday

Last year in May I invited a couple of Philip's friends over for what I called a "Big Breakfast". Saturday morning the boys were all home for Easter and as I am want to do I had them all back for a repeat "Big Breakfast".

The boys showed up around 9 AM and it was on! 2 college age boys, 1 high school senior, my mother in law and 2 daughters made the guest list and this group piled through 14 eggs scrambled, 1.5 pounds of bacon, 1 pound of hash browns with onions and biscuits with sausage gravy.

They ate almost every bit of it!

It only happens once a year, and it is worth every bit of work that it takes.

If you have not figured it out yet, I love to cook! I had a friend tell me not to long age that if I would ever open a restaurant, he would pay to eat my cooking. It's an idea but ... I got the greatest job in the world and a really fun hobby!

My day did not end there ... we enjoyed a great spring day! I found time to clean my garage, set out my turkey decoys and air out my hunting blind. Amy, Philip and I even squeezed in some time for fishing.

Overall, a great day!

The water in Clear Lake is still very cold and the fishing is very slow but we did catch a few yellow bass and a couple of sub-legal walleyes!

This doesn't sound too different from breakfast at the Clark household..that is, if Mrs. Clark would bless her family with a hot breakfast instead of cold cereal!

It sounds like your house is the place to be!
