It might have been rainy and cool outside this weekend, but inside our farmhouse we were enjoying time with extended family and four generations under one roof. Sunday morning I tried a few new recipes that I found on Pinterest: Cinnamon French Toast Bake, Baked Ham & Cheese Rollups, along with some cut fresh fruit, and Mimosas.
I needed to prepare enough food for eleven of us, but I also wanted plenty of time to hold our grandson, so these dishes were simple enough to make before everyone arrived.
The Baked Ham & Cheese Rollups consisted of Pillsbury crescent dough, thinly sliced ham, Swiss cheese, and a sauce made of butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, and dried onion. The full recipe can be found at http://www.highheelsandgrills.com/. I doubled the recipe and made a total of twenty of these delicious rollups.
I forgot to take a closeup of the Baked French Toast, but you can see it in the first photo. You simply use two cans of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and soak them in an egg/milk/cinnamon mixture. This recipe is at http://www.mightymrs.com/. This was the favorite with my kiddos, and I definitely should have filled two baking dishes with a double batch.
This was the first time we've all been together in the past few months, so we officially toasted the birth of our grandson with the parents and great-grandparents.
The guest of honor slept through my brunch.
But he was awake the night before for a Four Generations Photo Shoot.
And he even smiled for his delighted aunties and uncles.
This was the only weekend since school started that we had absolutely nothing on our calendar, and it was truly amazing that everyone else was free as well. It was a rare treat for sure.
