Christmas Morning Wifesaver
Superb! Make the day before and pop in the oven in the morning. Serves 8.
16 slices white bread, crusts removed
16 slices Canadian back bacon or ham
16 slices sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2-1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
Special K or crushed Corn Flakes
Set 8 pieces of bread into a 9″ x 13″ (23 x 33 cm) buttered, glass baking dish. Cover bread with slices of back bacon. Lay slices of cheddar cheese on top of bacon and then cover with remaining slices of bread to make it like a sandwich. In a bowl, beat eggs and pepper. To the egg mixture add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and Tabasco. Pour over the sandwiches, cover and let stand in fridge overnight. In morning, melt butter, pour over top. Cover with Special K or crushed Corn Flakes. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour at 350 deg.F (180 deg.C). Let sit 10 minutes before serving. Serve this with fresh fruit

I promised to post my Famous Fresh Bruschetta Recipe when my herbs were ready so here it is!!
This recipe can be adjusted according to how much bruschetta you want to make.
5 ripe vine tomatos – diced
1/2 of a large onion – diced
1/4 cup of fresh basil – chopped (I like using a tonne of basil)
1/2 cup of Feta Cheese – chopped or broken into small chunks
Salt to taste (the feta cheese has a lot of salt in it so you may not need any.)
1 clove of garlic – finely chopped
It’s best if it is served if it has been in the fridge for 1 hour or more (so the flavours can all come together)
Serve with 1/2 inch thick slices of french baguette (you can toast them in the oven if you like but I like everything to be served as is)
Let me know what you think!

Being pregnant in the summer sure has its ups and downs. The ups are all the fruit and veggies that are available and the downs are dying of heat when it isn’t really that hot. Anyhow, I was watching the children’s show Hi-Five with my daughter and they made this drink that had my mouth watering!
You need a blender that can crush ice.
1 cup of pure orange juice
1 cup of ice cubes
2 cups of fresh strawberries
Blend until smooth.
It’s so easy and it is something that I used to make all the time, but forgot how good and simple it is. I will be drinking these all summer long I can tell you that for sure! Elizabeth loves them too. I’ve made them with yogurt too and it ads a bit of tang – yummy 🙂 Enjoy!
Stay tuned for my Famous Bruschetta Recipe!!
