Good morning! It’s the weekend! Yaya! What are you making? I’m going to the store later and will definitely be getting ingredients to make this. What more can you even want from a breakfast / brunch situation? To be honest this is like ideal breakfast because it’s a pretty simple dish, but with all the ingredients together it’s really really good, and pretty filling. It’s also beautiful. :) Even though some people would frown at this suggestion, I will sometimes make this with scrambled eggs because then I can really load up on the egg portion of this meal. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
