Lazy Breakfast!

Lazy breakfast!

Crock-pot eggs
Make ahead hot tea

Food for thought: Do not worry. Matthew 6:25 LB

Decorate with summer items, like umbrellas, flip-flops, beach balls, etc.
Play beach music to brighten the morning.


Place the following in a crock-pot and cook all night.

4 Sliced potatoes
1 cup diced cooked ham
¼ cup chopped onion
½ c. chopped red and green peppers
¾ c. shredded cheese
6 eggs
½ cup evaporated milk
1 t. salt

Spray pot with none-stick oil. Layer potatoes, ham, onions, green peppers and cheese. Beat eggs. Add milk and salt. Mix well.
Pour over layers. Cook on low for 10-12 hours.

Cantaloupe Fruit Salad

Remove rind from cantaloupe. Cut into slices and serve cold.

Make Ahead Tea

4 family size tea bags
4 springs of mint
1/3 can of frozen orange juice
1 cup lemon juice
1-cup sugar

Bring a gallon water to a boil. Add tea bags. Steep 15 minutes. Pour orange juice, lemon juice and sugar into container. Add warm tea and stir well. Serve with mint, hot or cold.

From nutritionist: Summer time means a slower pace of living. Have a brunch with foods that can be made ahead of time. Place eggs casserole in the crock-pot and cook while sleeping. Make the tea the day before and serve hot or cold. Decorate the day before and even slice cantaloupe and place in an airtight container for service later.
Diabetics or people who are on low-glycemic diets will note that the menu has protein with the eggs, vitamins and minerals in the fruit. No bread is needed since carbohdrates are in the potatoes. The potatoes also supply vitamins. Since more liquids are desired in the summer time, keep plenty of tea on hand to resupply thristy family members and guests.

Enjoy while the living is easy!
