Sleepin In Omelette

I thought it would be nice to have a nice big breakfast this morning to celebrate my in-laws arrival. I know some people don't get along so well with their in-laws but I happen to adore mine (lucky me, I nabbed a terrific husband who just happens to have equally terrific parents). Tati joined us and we had a great morning, just sitting around the kitchen table, eating and talking and enjoying each others company.

This is not a low fat recipe. It's one of those breakfast treats you have once or twice a year. I think it would be great for Christmas morning since it's made the night before and you can just pop it in the oven the next day.

Tonight Mom's making her famous baby back ribs with Kluski noodles (which we can't get here in RI!). My boys can hardly wait. Yeah for Grandma G!
