I originally had a delicious sweet potato salad for you today. Then life happened, I ran out of the house without my hard drive that had the photos on it, and I was left to whatever recipe I had photos already uploaded.  It’s been a frazzled kind of day. You may or may not know that I am currently pursuing a new venture.  That venture left me sitting with a banker this morning.  I swear (and no offense if anyone who reads this is a banker), they scare the crap out of me.  I think sitting down with a banker is worse than sitting down for a job interview.  Of course, this was my first time and now that I have that experience under my belt, the next one shouldn’t be as bad (hopefully!) So, I’m kind of off kilter a little but I was able to have lunch with my dad, shop a little, and now I am waiting to go take photos for a local cafe’s website.  All and all, not a bad Friday and once the banker sit-down was done, I felt a lot better. Phew, onto the recipe. Are you looking for a no-hassle weekend breakfast?  This is it.  The spinach was from the farm (of course) and I love how easy it is to throw all the ingredients together the night before.  You can really throw whatever you want into the mix but to be honest, I love how simple yet delicious this recipe is. I have to warn you though- this makes two very large portions. M and I were full after eating only half!
