I don’t know about you but I had the BEST MOTHER’s DAY ever! We had both of our families in town this past weekend to celebrate Livi’s baptism and for mother’s day. This was our first time to actually entertain a big group of people at our new house and I loved every second of it.
We started out Saturday with breakfast followed by a crawfish boil. All the little kids enjoyed seeing the crawfish squirm around in the cooler.
SHOOT! I enjoyed it just as much as the kids seeing live crawfish at our house. After lunch we were already preparing for supper. Not sure if it’s just our family, but don’t you feel that when you are with other people at gatherings all you do is eat!
Sunday morning we got up and prepared a large brunch before little O’s baptism. Now everyone in our family knows that I have a food blog; however I dislike trying out new recipes when visitors are around just in case something turns out bad or it tastes awful.
As a food blogger I am always keeping notes in my phone and around the house when a recipe comes to mind. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to make a cup of something using wonton wrappers. Shaun’s older sister had made some taco cups at her house a couple weekends back and I loved that idea. I’m a huge fan of migas and I decided why not try to bake them and use the wonton wrapper as the tortilla chips. I am now kicking myself for not making this for the family while they were here because they would have been all over these baked miga cups.
Not sure if you have seen the Breakfast After Dark campaign with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! I was so excited so be preparing a breakfast recipe for dinner because quite frankly Shaun and I do it ALL THE TIME. Also, being a huge fan of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills I was excited to see Lisa Vanderpump as the spokesperson. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! has 70% less saturated fat than butter, no hydrogenated oils and is made from a blend of vegetable oils. Our products are also gluten free.
You will need to try out this recipe for dinner or your next brunch!
