Grocery shopping went better this week. Aaron actually went with me (my car broke down on Thursday) and provided some accountability for impulse buying. We were really trying to stick to bare-bones shopping because money is so tight right now….and with the car breaking down….::sigh:: I am praying a lot for the Lord’s provision.

Thankfully, we only spent $80 on groceries this week–this is including $16 of savings with my Kroger card and a few coupons! I feel really good. Hopefully this savings trend will continue. 
Here is the recipe for the Breakfast Casserole. It is one of my favorites and is super-yummy!
Weekend (or Weeknight!) Breakfast Bake

• 12 oz. pork sausage
• 1/3 cup chopped onion
• 2-3 cups shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
• 8 eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

1. In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
2. Transfer to a greased (believe me, you don’t want to forget this step….) 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
3. Combine eggs and soup; pour over cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 8 servings

This recipe can be made in advance and then just popped in the oven right before dinner. It is also really good leftover.

  1. Your breakfast casserole sounds yummy and different from any other b-fast casserole I've had. We might have to try that this week. Thanks for sharing!
