Home again, home again.

Our last day of vacation...why are vacations always too short? And why the heck do they make check out so dang early??? We had to be out at 10, so we did another night before breakfast.
Slow cooker skillet!
You need...
12 eggs
32 oz bag of frozen o'brien style hash browns, defrosted and rinsed
1 lb sausage, bacon or ham (or any combo you like)
1 md onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced (use whatever color you like best)
1 c milk, 2%
1 c sour cream
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste
2 c cheddar cheese, shredded

1 Cook meat, drain and crumble. Set aside. Save a bit of the oil and add onion and peppers. Cook until onions are soft.

2 Spray 6 qt. slow cooker with non-stick spray or use liner for slow cooker.

3 Put in half the potatoes, meat and vegetables in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Repeat.

4 Mix together eggs, milk, sour cream and seasonings. Pour this mixture over the top of ingredients in crock pot.

5 Cook on low for eight hours.
It was pretty good...I think next time we will keep the hashbrowns out and cook them up by themselves, I like mine a more crispy and they turned out pretty mushy in the crock pot.
After breakfast we loaded up and headed home, the big kids were pretty happy to watch a movie in the car LOL. We stopped for lunch at Calamity Jane's again...this time with dollar bill in hand to add to the rest decorating the place.

The girls had a pretty funny, and totally inappropriate if taken out of context, conversation at the table during lunch. They were talking about what My Little Pony episode they wanted to watch first when we got home. One of their faves is a 2 parter, about a pony wedding or something. So in a restaurant full of people eating, my girls were arguing back and forth...and not exactly quietly, about which you do first "Number one first" "No number 2 comes first" "No it doesn't number 1 is first" LMAO.

The cats obviously didn't miss us too much LOL.

Oh some picks of obsidian that found its way to our house. Yup they jumped right in our car.
We had a ton of dirty clothes to get washed...I can't believe the kids went through that many clothes in just 4 days. We all came home with battle wounds...AKA Mosquito bites, and are pretty beat...I swear I always feel I need a vacation to recover from vacation LOL. What a great trip though...we are for sure going back in a year or two.
