Mushroom and Asparagus Strata

  • Happy Easter a day early!  I bring you this mushroom and asparagus strata to make for breakfast tomorrow morning.  As if you don’t already have your menu planned out.

    I thought this would be a great spring time breakfast using asparagus since they are in season right now.  You can also add sausage or ham to this and it would be great!

    You guys– Wal-Mart and I are not friends right now!  Honestly, I am not sure why I shop there some days.  The Easter candy isle was like a war zone.

    Moms were pulling hair, crashing into each other, shouting obscene words and for what????  A poor defenseless chocolate rabbit on the shelf with no hole to hide in.

    There were so many people shopping in those tiny little isles!! But honestly it’s not Wal-Marts fault.  It’s mine for putting things off to the last minute (as I usually do).

    But learning from the past buying that candy early always means I have to buy it again.  And the funny part is I am not the one who ate it which leaves only one other person who knew where I hid the stash and he seems to know nothing about the disappearance.  Love you honey but I know it’s you!

    Well, I hope your family has a safe and blessed Easter!
