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!

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