Bunny, Bird and Baking

*~ BUNNY ~*

This is "Hoppy"
He has been visiting our yard since 
we moved in a year and a half ago.
Lulu, our granddaughter, named him.

You can almost set your watch, as to when him shows up.
Out our kitchen window every evening,
 around 5:00 PM, he dines on grass.
He stays for several hours, even taking a nap!
Then hops away.
 Sometimes, he comes for breakfast in our front yard.

~* BIRD *~

See the bird in the flower basket?
It's a baby bird, taking in the "sunshine".
He stayed for several hours.
He didn't even budge when I came close.

*~* BAKING *~*

 This is a smart idea I found here.
Make ahead eggs for breakfast sandwiches.
I made these for Todd & Stephanie for those busy mornings.

We eat a lot of broccoli.
This is a new way of serving it.
Tom loved it!
You can find the recipe here.

Did you know ...
* Eating broccoli reduces the risk of coronary heat disease and death in postmenopausal women.
* Broccoli is high in Vitamins C, A and folate and also soluble fiber.
* It has been shown to fight cancer cells in lab tests.
* Fun Fact - Thomas Jefferson was a fan pf broccoli, importing the seeds from Italy to plant at Monticello.
