    I was thinking earlier this evening of making these. Now I’ll have to check to see if I have everything or put it on the list for next week.

    I love Breakfast for supper and so does my family! I haven’t tried potatoes with my eggs. I’ll have to try that. Breakfast tacos are one of those things that my daughter likes to make us all for breakfast, so maybe she would enjoy doing that for her supper night soon. BTW, I am hosting a giveaway this week to celebrate my 1st blog birthday. Come by and enter!

    I’ve been known to serve breakfast for dinner before and to make a potato omelette, but I had never thought to serve it with fruit, what a wonderful fresh idea. I’m excited to try it, thank you!
