Poopy purses and other things much more pleasant to think about...

Last night Larry and Savanna and I went with Eddie and Candy to Sarasota for the evening.  While there we were in a store that had lovely things ~ clothes, purses, housewares, all in a very elegant environment.  However, I think some child or perhaps a very immature adult had gone in amongst a lovely display of monogrammed purses and did a little "creative rearranging."  All of a sudden amidst our shopping, Savanna loudly declares, "Oh my gosh, does that say POOP??!!"  We looked over and burst out laughing to the point of tears and couldn't stop for a while.  Candy and I had been looking around the displays and had not even noticed the word the purses had spelled out but Savanna noticed it the first second she laid eyes on it.   She's not only prophetic, she's observant!  :)  Candy and I were laughing too hard to do anything about it but Savanna pulled out her phone to take a picture.

In other news, today is life coaching!  Yay!  I know God is going to do something awesome today, I just know it in my knower, and maybe I'll share some of my teaching or what results later on this week here on the blog.  We always start with brunch. This morning I've made a breakfast casserole that I'm trying for the first time from the "Taste of Home Best Church Supper Recipes" book.  It looks absolutely delicious as you can see below from this photo I took right off of the Taste of Home site.  Thought I'd share the recipe here.  Bonnie is also making quiche and we're having fruit and juices and coffee and tea.  It's worth coming to life coaching for the food alone.  :)

Sausage Hash Brown Bake

2 pounds bulk pork sausage
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese - divided
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
1 cup of french onion dip (usually comes in the smaller cartons)
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 package (30 oz) frozen shredded hash browns, thawed

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain; In a large bowl mix 1 and 3/4 cups cheese and the next seven ingredients; fold in potatoes; Spread half of potato mixture into a greased 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Top with all of the sausage, and then top that with remaining potato mixture.  Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until all the way heated through.  Enjoy!

Can you believe I've talked about poop and shared a recipe in the same blog post?  I know, that's why you come here.  You never know what you're going to get...life is like a box of chocolates...
