Morning Everyone
Well up early today to get stuff done around here. Have to wrap Grumpy's present and put it back in its hiding place..He is off on client calls today but will be home just after noon...Had a great day yesterday with the girls , went to the new restaurant in Canwest Mall or whatever you call it now, to me it is still Canwest Mall...right next to the Noodle Box and Cobbs Bread. It is a very popular place but we went at 11:30 we were the second table there and by 10 to 12 it was packed...Food was good , great prices and lots to choose from...Noisy but for a quick lunch or dinner it was wonderful..
This recipe you need to make on Christmas Eve and put in the fridge overnight and then pop in the oven Christmas morning, open you stockings and in an hour you have a good breakfast to serve to your family....

Wifesavers Breakfast

16 slices white bread, with crusts removed
slices of back bacon or ham, sliced thinly
slices of sharp cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 to 1 tsp dry mustard powder
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped (optional)
1 to 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
3 cups WHOLE milk
dash red pepper sauce (tabasco)
1/4 lb. butter
Special K or crushed corn flakes
Use a 9" X 13" buttered glass baking dish, put 8 pieces of bread. Add pieces to cover dish entirely.
Cover bread with slices of back bacon, sliced thin or ham , make sure you meat is already cooked. It's best if your meat is about the size of the bread slice, for ease of cutting after it's cooked.
Lay slices of cheddar cheese on top of bacon and then cover with slices of bread to make it like a sandwich.
In a bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper.
To the egg mixture add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and tabasco.
Pour over the sandwiches.
Cover and let stand in fridge overnight.
In the morning, melt 1/4 lb. butter, pour over the top. Cover with Special K or crushed corn flakes (I use the Special K) and bake, UNCOVERED for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving. It's very nice served with fresh, cutup fruit.
Today I have a couple of small work orders to get done before the holidays really start. It is a slow time of the year for me but it is nice it allows me to do some stuff around the house and not have to venture out just be nice and cosy in my home....Looking for a good book to start to read just have not figured out what I am into reading these days ... Any ideas???

Thrifty Tip
Homemade Foaming Soap...

I love foaming hand soap. I swear I can go through an entire bottle in just over two just washing my hands! So, I knew that my love for these hand soaps would have to go unsatisfied if I could not find an economical solution. The wonders of the web pointed me to many different sites discussing methods and recipes for refilling these jars at home! So here goes for those of you out there who feel the same way.

Materials :
Empty foaming soap dispenser
Body wash or dish soap in your favorite scent (I only use the clear body washes not the creamy types)
HOT water (not boiling but really hot)
If your soap dispenser is a little gummy around the spout (like mine), give it a rinse to clean it off.
Pour your body wash/dish soap into the empty jar. I use approximately 1 inch of body wash . For dish soap I use a little less because it foams far more. There is no exact science for this...if you use more soap, the suds are thicker.
Run you tap until the water is extremely hot.
Decrease the flow of the water and slowly fill the container , if you put it on an angle it will not create suds in your container and then leave approximately 1 inch on the top to allow room for the pump.
Carefully stir the soap and water until it is mixed. Do not shake.I use a chop stick or knitting needle.
Pump a few times until you feel warm suds and then you are done!
