Quick one pan baked breakfast casserole is loaded with potatoes, broccoli, eggs and lots of cheese for a flavor-packed breakfast the whole family will love! I remember a few years back I used to sleep like 4-5 hours a night and that was it for me. I would stay up all night then catch few hours between 2 and 6 am and then wake up feeling energized and refreshed.
Now with my little one around by 9 p.m I’m out of it and can barely lift a finger. I sleep a good 7-8 hours a night and it’s still not enough. Seriously, kids do drain the energy out of you big time!
I’ve opted into finding simpler ways to make my favorite family meals without sacrificing a ton of time or energy.
