Cooking Breakfast for the Sacred Heart Kids

Dec 2015 157Trying to do something nice for kids is funny. I told my first period art students I’d cook breakfast for them on Saturday night a couple of weeks ago. Well, I went out-of-town and they had something, then the day wasn’t right. I thought they would want to run around and eat late. No, they wanted to do it on a Friday and eat early. So, I went to the store and bought big thing of biscuits, 2 packages of hash browns, 2 sausage, 2 bacon, 2 orange juice, gallon of milk, and chocolate milk, ketchup, big Dr. Pepper, flour, 2 dozen eggs, the works. I came home at 2:00 Friday afternoon put everything up, set down and fell asleep. I woke up at 4:30 and hadn’t done one thing! I learned a whole bunch whileDec 2015 159 doing this, but the main thing was I needed 2 more skillets to do this amount of breakfast cooking. I had to put bacon in the oven on cookie sheets and start heating it up while I was frying some in the only frying pan I had.  It was in and out of the oven while the biscuits were trying to cook. Then in the middle of it all I poured the bowl of grease I was saving for the gravy all over the counter and floor. The kids came in and set the tables and got the extra chairs and helped. I had planned for 10 and ended up with 13, I think. We had a blast and the food was great. They seemed to have a good time and ate almost all of everything. By 8:00 it was all cleaned up and I got to sit down and eat in peace and quiet. A fun Christmas memory.c1c2
