Sharing the Love: Easy Eggbake

My strata recipe requires an overnight to soak into the bread, and I needed something I didn't have to wait for.  Voila!  Here it is:

2 cups ham, sausage, bacon or any kind of breakfast meat (add any veggies you like as well)
1/3 bag of frozen hashbrowns
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (sub swiss, Gruyere, or any kind of cheese you like)
8 eggs
3 cups of milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Grease 9x13 baking pan.  Mix hashbrowns, meat, veggies, and one cup of the cheese and place in pan.  Mix eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour over hashbrown mixture.  Top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 for an hour, or until eggs are firm.

Presenting my Children

Today in Mass, Father Terry's homily was poignant. He said, in short, that parents worry about their children.  They worry when they're young, and they worry when they're grown.  And it's never been more true.  I'm going through a challenging time.  My strength and my patience and my grace is being tried.  I'm like everyone, and I forget to give my challenges to God.  I get caught up in my sorrow and my anger and sometimes it consumes me.  But then, once in awhile, God speaks to me.  Today, Father said that when we come to church, we present our children to God.  It hit me in the heart.  So I did. I presented my children, and my family to God.  I asked him to bless us and to heal us and restore us.  I feel comforted.  Ye who are weary, come home.
