Every fall we take 8 potted geranium plants down to a cool storage room in our basement and put them to bed for the winter! Then on March 1st or thereabouts Pa Lloyd brings them upstairs where he lines them up in front of a window, I trim them way back, believe it or not without water or sun all winter they do start sprouting some weak colored sprouts and leaves, then I mix up some vitamins ( Miracle grow) and start caring for them. Most of them are starting to sprout tiny green leaves and by May they will be ready to flower and put out on our front steps! I used to take them out of the flower pots and put them in paper bags and put them away for the winter, sometimes they survived, sometimes not. Now we just put the plant, pot and all to bed, works much better and so much easier! Best of all it saves money. The way it felt today spring has to be just around the corner!
Easter too will soon be here. Today I am sharing a easy breakfast dish to try.
Impossible Ham and Swiss Pie:
2 cups diced ham
1 cup Swiss chees, grated
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
4 large eggs beaten
2 cups whole milk
1 cup dry biscuit mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees, lightly grease a 10 inch pie plate with butter or non-stick spray.
Spread ham out on the bottom of the pie dish, top with onions and Swiss cheese.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and biscuit mix, then add seasonings. Pour egg mixture over ham, onions and cheese, then place pie dish in oven.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown and bubbly and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve hot. Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
