Asparagus Egg Casserole

So far, I am sticking to my new goal of four healthy and vegetable loaded dinners a week. So, I made this last week- Asparagus Egg Casserole. Really it’s the Asparagus, Egg, Feta and Tomato Casserole but that is a little wordy. I just kind of made this recipe up. I wanted some vegetables and I wanted eggs as the main protein one night because healthy food gets expensive y’all – eggs make for a cheap night :) 

Ingredients:
8 eggs
milk
celery
yellow onion
asparagus
feta cheese
tomato
salt and pepper

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 450. Saute yellow onion and celery in a little olive oil. I added some salt and pepper. Let them cool.

Wash, trim your asparagus into 1/2″ sections. I used the whole bunch. Then, blanch the asparagus.

Beat 8 eggs and add a little milk, salt and pepper. 

Make sure the onion/celery mixture and the asparagus are not too hot and add them to the eggs. Add half of your feta cheese.

Mix and add the mixture to the casserole dish. Slice your tomato and place on top of the egg mixture. Top with more feta.

I baked mine at 450 for about an hour. But I think my oven isn’t as powerful as most…? Just keep an eye on it.

Serve with a side salad and Enjoy!

Do you have any healthy casseroles that I should try? They don’t have to be super low fat but they have to have a bunch of veggies… I just made that rule up, I think its appropriate.

Baby Onesie Refashion

Take plain onesies and turn them into a baby fashion statement.
Babies need a little refashion sometimes too. These onesies were originally embroidered with a little “baby saying”… cute but I thought the colors were a little too girly for my Clyde. He never wore them, I refashioned and re-gifted! I just used some fabric scraps and some imagination.
Before:
I made two; here is how I made the first one:
I started by embroidering the letter “f” on my fabric, I just penciled it freehand right on the fabric.

Next step is to iron interfacing to the back of the fabric. I went for the raw edge look and this way the fabric won’t fray as much. 
Next, line the fabric up to the onesie and  mark with a pencil where you will cut. 
Sew around the new fabric that you are attaching. 
Onesie refashion number 2…
Add interfacing to the back of the fabric again and cut out some pieces of the pattern.

Pin the pieces on the onesie so you cover the old design.
And sew. I again went for a messy sewn look. If you like a neater look you could do a tight zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of the fabric. 
I added my fabric label…

and wrapped them up in a cute little package. Add some clips and you have a perfect baby gift.

Brobee Shirt

Last Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday post, I promise. I had a hard time finding anything for Finn’s party so, maybe this will help a fellow searcher.


All of the Brobee shirts I found were far too expensive for a boy. If you have a boy you know what I mean, after about 3 times, there will be a stain for sure. I also like any excuse to try new craft supplies and I have never used Iron-On Vinyl.. so, lets do this.

Inspiration: This $4 shirt from Target; Perfect Brobee


I used my favorite Silhouette feature and “traced” a Brobee Face that I found online. This file is specific to the Silhouette Software and I am super cool so I you can download it for free HERE :)


Just cut the different “facial features” in the three different colors.


Now… per the instructions on the Vinyl Packet, iron down the cut pieces with the shiny side up and press while gradually increasing the pressure of the iron. Only iron down the “first layer” of pieces.


Then pull up the plastic coating and add the “second layer pieces”.


Ok… sick of Brobee yet or will you miss him while he is gone? I’m sure he will be back, and Finn won’t miss him cause check out his new shoes… hehe.

White Wine Sangria

As promised, White Wine Sangria. I figured if you had to come to a two year old party, the least I could do is serve Sangria, right? And its just too hot for red wine so, White Wine Sangria it is!

This batch I made was simple, refreshing and low cal because it is made with Fresca. 
This recipe makes a ton so you can always cut it in half. Add more or less wine to make it as strong/weak as you like.

White Wine Sangria:
- 1.5 L. Bottle White Wine (I actually used Chardonnay)
- 1/2 L. Fresca 
- 1 can peach nectar
-1/2 c. limeade
-fresh fruit (I used lemons, oranges, strawberries and peaches)
