I had never made these before, but when I had my mastectomy, my friend, Sharon, came from Chicago to stay with me for a week. She was a nurse to me, and loved all over my girls. While she was here she made this "Toad In A Hole" breakfast a few times. It has become a favorite of ours. It is so fast and easy, and quite filling for each person, if I add fruit to the plate. It makes me miss my friend every time I make it. Everyone should have a friend like her-- I love you, Sharon!!
It is my middle child's birthday weekend. I did not have the energy to throw a party, so we took the money we usually would spend for a party and had a "double-date dinner, manicures, and spending- spree- at- the- mall" birthday night out. We were with my daughter's friend and her mom, Carma, who is a great friend of mine. It was a super fun night out, ending with Caramelicious Frappucinos (decaf of course)-- my girl thought she was old enough to drink coffee--she isn't! Hers sat untouched, despite the fact that she tasted mine and was convinced she liked it and was old enough to have one of her own!
We had my daughter's friend spend the night. We have a breakfast tradition of pancakes and eggs anytime we have a sleepover. Again, my energy was not great, so instead of pancakes I decided to make "Toads In A Hole" The kids loved them, and it only took minutes!
