Summer Bucket List // Week One Recap

Activity number 12 on my summer bucket list is to make breakfast for my grandparents each Sunday morning. This was the first Sunday I headed on over to their house to whip up something delicious before they were home from Church. I've been craving the two egg special I always order from Blue Hen when I'm visiting in St. Augustine. Low and behold, I attempted to recreate my own to hold me over until my next trip up there. I did scrambled eggs, sweet potato home fries, biscuits, fresh fruit and a side of avocado. The sweet potato home fries were incredibly simple. After peeling and dicing the potatoes, I drizzled them with a little olive oil and sprinkled on salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder for a little extra spice. I scattered them on a cookie sheet and popped them into the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. If you have the time and like crispier potatoes, I would bake them for a bit longer. The eggs were just scrambled and the biscuits were pillsbury honey butter biscuits that you obviously can't go wrong with. I couldn't even attempt to make my own biscuits comparable to those from Blue Hen. It's just impossible, I am convinced.

My grandparents loved every bit of it and I did too. I'm sure lots of people say this about their grandparents, but I truly have two of the best in the business. They are some of the most kind-hearted and generous people I have ever met, and I'm lucky that they have passed along those important values. They were both thankful to have someone cook for them and I was thankful to spend a few extra hours with them: chatting about life and it's craziness all over a cup of coffee. See you next Sunday! To the stars and back, Grandma and Grandpa!
