Sunday mornings have always been special to Sarah and I.  We would turn on CBS Sunday Mornings while drinking coffee in bed. Half way through the show we would get up and make breakfast together while watching TV in the kitchen, in our PJ’s! I would cook the bacon while Sarah made one of her favorite go-to recipes-this one, which we would carry back to our room and enjoy breakfast in bed!
