Denver Potato Bake

How pretty are those flowers??  Yellow is one of my favorite colors, and I absolutely love the yellow and pink flowers together.  Makes me happy just looking at them.  My sweet husband bought those for me the other day, and I am once again reminded of what a lucky girl I am.  How many husbands regularly go about surprising their wives with flowers?? 

And if you look to the left there, you’ll see my rosemary making a comeback after the long winter.  My chives are coming back to life too, and I get so excited over every new green sprout I see 🙂

I’m excited about sharing this recipe today too because it’s delicious!  It’s like those Western breakfast scrambles you can find on restaurant menus except this one is baked in the oven.  Great for a breakfast for dinner night (love those!) or for a special weekend breakfast.

You can also get creative and add other vegetables and ingredients you like.  I love playing around with recipes!

I fried up some sliced apples and pears in a little butter and brown sugar to go along with.  It made for a great breakfast for dinner meal that I will definitely make again!

Until next time, happy cooking 🙂
