This past Easter I decided that I didn't want to wrestle with getting the kids up early enough to head over to sunrise service and the breakfast that goes with it. I planned a nice leisurely breakfast at home and then we strolled into church right about the time that it was going to start. No mass chaos with kids running everywhere, no crabby kids that I had to wake up and drag out of bed... It was a nice start to our day!! So, if I was going to let them sleep in, then I wanted to get a little extra shut eye myself - so that meant no getting up extra early to make something extravagant... But, I wanted it to definitely be something yummy though!! This fit the bill... Not too difficult to throw together and it only took about 20 minutes in the oven to cook. I could easily shower and get a couple of kids ready in that time!! Not to mention that it tasted delicious!! we had some fruit on the side and it was a great start to our Easter morning.
