So our trip to the museum was amazing. It recently re-opened after what seemed like years of renovations. Lots to see and plenty of interactive stations for the kids. The boys loved it.
There were a few drawbacks to our experience though. Parking is an issue. It is downtown after all, so it's to be expected. But one thing I have learned as a mom is just to pay for the parking at the venue. It saves driving around and around with two anxious kids in the car. The unfortunate part about the museum parking is, its small. We arrived mid afternoon on a cloudy day, and it was busy. We turned into the parking lot and got stuck in line waiting for cars to exit before cars would be allowed in. What seemed like a huge mistake actually resulted in only a 7 minute wait. This gave the kids time to eat their snack before going in. Hoping to prevent the whining and complaining and begging for food once we were inside.
All in all it was a good day. We spent 4 hours in the museum and closed the place down. Then rushed home for homemade pizza. Oh and to prepare our breakfast for today. Confused? Well the recipe I am about to share has to be prepared the night before. So that's what we did. The boys are enjoying the fruits of their labour as I type this.
So I have to share this recipe because it's a great little "go to" number if you have over night guests. The recipe serves 6, but since these were for my two boys only, I cut the recipe in 1/4. (Not sure if that makes sense)
Anyway, let's call these little beauties:
Bacon and Egg Melties
12 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
2 cups of grated cheddar cheese
1 cup of mayo
12 slices of crispy bacon, crumbled
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
6 whole English Muffins, split
Combine eggs with all ingredients. Fold together gently. Cover and store in the fridge overnight. Spread on English Muffin halves. Then broil for 3 to 5 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Once again a big thank you to The Pioneer Woman for a fabulous recipe.
