Family Weekend at the Lake - Breakfast Casserole...friendly animals

This weekend is family day at the cottage. Marc's brother and wife will bring their mom who will be 96 in November to the lake for 2 nights. That will be a 2-1/2 hour drive and they'll arrive this afternoon. The 6 "kids" will arrive during the evening after their work. They'll set up tents outside. I'll make lasagne for dinner.

Tomorrow afternoon will start an open house of friends stopping by. They'll come to visit mom and stay and eat and there will be bocci and other games to play. The weather is going to be hot and sunny. Perfect picnic day.



I forgot to bring the cord to transfer picture to my computer with me so this is a breakfast we made. The potatoes were leftovers from the previous dinner that had been wrapped in foil and on the grill. They were sliced smaller. We beat eggs, added diced ham, sauteed onions, salt and pepper and poured into individual oval ramekins. After baking for 35 minutes we added some shredded cheddar cheese to melt and then indulged. Yum!

and we had a bunny a couple of cottages over....


and a deer in the apple orchard behind us....



Hope you have a lovely day...as my American friends move towards July 4th Independence Day... Judi xoxo

Judi, I hope you have just the best time ever with your family and friends. The wildlife is wonderful. I love seeing our birds and squirrels. You have more animal visitors than we do here in town. Now, I don't know bocci but I know you'll have fun. It all sounds wonderful and I have my fingers crossed for great weather. We are about 15 degrees cooler than we usually are this time of year. LOVE that. Enjoy! Marilyn

Hi Judi and happy Canada Day! I so enjoyed seeing all of the animals around your cottage! I haven't seen a little rabbit like that in the wild in years! :)
Enjoy your family and take care,
