This is one of those casseroles that you can serve at any time of the day. I gave some to mom for breakfast and then packed some up so she could take it to work with her and have it for lunch too. It was way better than her usual tuna fish sandwich and slice of string cheese. She told me that I better stop being so nice to her or she would never want to go home! I don’t often get to take care of my mom, so I took advantage of the opportunity. I was almost disappointed when I heard they had the power restored.
