McMuffin Casserole and New Windows

Today is a super exciting day for us.  It is a day of dreams coming true.  We are getting new windows.  We currently have the original steel windows from 1956 (yes, I’ll be keeping them and hopefully making a greenhouse).  You can imagine the complete lack of energy efficiency with the old windows.  You could sit on the couch and feel a breeze in the winter and burn up in the summer.  We went with Window World and so far are quite pleased.  We are especially pleased with our Cajun installer.  He’s a hoot.  (I’m slightly agog that I just typed hoot…I’m not 80 years old for God’s sake).

Our exciting day began with a trip to the vet.  We dropped all four dogs off for day care.  The ½ mile drive to the vet was exhausting.  This is what Cujo looked like by the time we got there.

Next, I put together a McMuffin Casserole and began mixing screwdrivers. Our plan was basically to create our own window-install brunch.  The amazing thing about the screwdrivers is we got the orange juice free yesterday.  Winn Dixie was running a special for reward cardholders.  If you bought three boxes of cereal you got a gallon of milk, half a gallon of O.J., blueberry muffin mix and fruit snacks for free!!  I’m a big fan of their reward card system (any place that you shop...ALWAYS ask if they have a reward card and sign up).  I bought two weeks worth of groceries for $150 and saved $80…plus, I had a five dollar off coupon.  Nothing makes vodka taste better than free juice!

So good!!!

FREE juice screwdrivers!!!
I'm sure they appreciate us watching them.  Tiffany and I threw the pillows out the open window frame.  It was fun.

First window done!!

McMuffin Casserole

4 English Muffins
6 oz. Canadian bacon
1 cup cheddar cheese
4 eggs
1 ¼ cup milk

Grease an 8-inch baking dish.  Cube English muffins and chop Canadian bacon.  Add half of the cubed English muffins in a single layer.  Top with half of the Canadian bacon and ½ cup of the cheese.  Layer the remaining English muffins and Canadian bacon and ½ cup more cheese.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until combined.  Pour the egg mixture evenly over the casserole.  Wrap the baking dish with plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day.

Bake at 325 degrees 45 to 50 minutes.
