For school-age kids, summer is slowly ticking away. It’s no surprise that they would cringe at the thought of sitting in class instead of playing with friends all day, fishing or taking family trips. Summertime is a valuable thing to kids and making the transition back to school can be hard for parents and children alike.
One of the hardest things to get kids re-accustomed to is getting up early. They might not have any problem getting up at the crack of dawn to catch fish or play in a baseball tournament, but the same can’t be said for catching the bus. This recipe came from one of my daughters and is one of my favorites for this time of the year since most of the work is done the night before.
When you get up in the morning to start your coffee and get ready for work or to see the kids off, just pop it in the oven. By the time the kids hit the snooze bar a few times, the delicious smell of this casserole will coax them out of bed and have them ready to start the day. It’s also great for Sunday School classes or brunches.
