Prom Weekend

 Alexa and Austin ready for BCHS Prom 
It's a masquerade ball. 

After-Prom Breakfast provided by junior class parents: 

Linda's Breakfast Casserole Recipe
6 cups cubed bread, crusts removed (I used gluten free Trader Joe Bread)
1 pound sausage, cooked, crumbled and drained of fat (or 2 cups cubed ham)
1 1/2 cups Colby-jack cheese, shredded
8 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups milk
1 tsp.salt
1 tsp. dry mustard

The night before: Layer bread cubes sausage, and grated cheese in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Combine eggs, milk, salt and dry mustard and pout over the ingredients in the baking dish.
Refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, remove from refrigerator and let sit 30 minutes.
Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
Lets sit for 5 minutes, then serve.

I also made a casserole using frozen hash browns (thawed)  as the base instead of bread.

Kit-Tea for Kitty Rose

My friend, Lynn, and I enjoyed Monday brunch and an afternoon of shopping.
I found these Tea Zing™ Catnip Toys.
Lynn said I "had" to buy them for Kitty Rose. 
 Kitty kept inching a little closer, then pounced on her own Kit-Tea bag.
Too cute!

James Taylor Concert

Sunday night at Rupp Arena in Lexington (yes, the basketball place)
James Taylor was in concert to a full house. 
Above Austin and Alexa joined the old folks (Glenn and me)
for dinner and a fantastic show.  
We've seen J.T. in concert three times, and this was the best! 
If you have an opportunity, go see James Taylor and His All Star Band
in the "Before This World Tour 2016" touring North America and Canada.
