At some point in time I became a sleep wimp.
I’m not exactly sure when it happened, I just know that it did and I CANNOT hang.
I’ve always been a morning person (I know. Annoying!), but more than that I’ve always been able to survive on little to no sleep.
5-6 hours on the regular and I’m good to go. When I was just a few years younger it was nothing for me to work all day and then all night on maybe 4 hours of sleep and then go again! None of it phased me. But NOW, I am eyeballing the clock at 9:30 when I send the kids to bed, totally jealous that they get a bedtime and I still have at least an hour and a half worth of things to do. And then I negotiate with myself in these ridiculous ways and think, “ohh I’ll just close my eyes for 15 minutes…,” and then 15 turns into 20 and then I halfway eyeball the clock and think, “I’ll just get up 20 minutes earlier…” and on and on and on.
What I’m saying is… I need sleep. I am sleep wimpy.
With holidays looming and endless hours in the kitchen on the schedule, I am happy to have a handful of recipes I can make ahead and then stick in the oven and not worry. This breakfast casserole is PERFECT. Make ahead, stick it in the fridge, and then pretend you have it all together when you overslept and haven’t had enough coffee in the morning. This dish is Sunday breakfast/brunch awesomeness. Or Saturday mornings. Or Christmas. You can smack me now for saying that.
