Leisurely Weekend Mornings: Barbara's Open-House Waffles, Cranberry Hootycreek Pancakes, Texas Toads in the Hole, Bacon & Egg Potato Skins, Blueberry-Lemon Crepes, Sugar Plum Bacon, Eggs Benedict, Granny Ruth's Chocolate Gravy and Red Velvet Pancakes

We just had breakfast for supper tonight, neices were over and they asked... why are we eating breakfast for supper? I answered, 'cause that's what my family has been waiting for ever since we went blueberry picking last week! Blueberry Pancakes! Now we are thinking the Break-of-Day Berry Parfait will be a perfect snack this weekend! But truely, I am planning to pop some French Toast Casserole into my fridge tomorrow night, to surprise my husband with homemade (not get up early to fix it) breakfast after a long business trip of 2 weeks and lots of meals out!!! :) Can't wait!
