Me in my night gown with my New BANGS!
(No makeup, Well it was Halloween)
My Favorite Hunchback
Doesn’t this sound yummy on a cold and rainy day??? I have had some highs and lows with recipes off of Pinterest, but this was definitely a HIGH! It was simple, yet delicious. It also makes a ton! We are planning on freezing what we had leftover, but will feed a crowd if you need something.
1 bag (32 oz) frozen southern-style diced hash brown potatoes, thawed
1/2 cup frozen chopped onion (from 12-oz bag), thawed
1 medium stalk celery, diced (1/2 cup)
1 carton (32-oz) Progresso® chicken broth
1 cup water
3 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 bag (8 oz) shredded American-Cheddar cheese blend (2 cups)
1/4 cup real bacon pieces (from 2.8-oz package)
4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
1. In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix potatoes, onion, celery, broth and water.
2. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.
3. In small bowl, mix flour into milk; stir into potato mixture. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 20 to 30 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in cheese until melted. Garnish individual servings with bacon and green onions. Sprinkle with pepper if desired.
This is a Betty Crocker recipe, so of course it is going to be good! Also sorry about not posting last Tuesday! I was on vacation!!! Read about it here!
I LOVE all of the over the top Fall décor that is floating around the internet and blog land. In my dream world, my house would also look the same way. However, working full time, being a mother, and wife, it is just not possible. That does not include Christmas! I go ALL out! Anyway, below is my simple Fall décor. I basically only decorated a table in the living room and dining room table.
Entry table in the Living Room: Pumpkin and green glass containers are from Hobby Lobby, leaf plate is from Wal-Mart last season, and rectangular glass vase I have had for years. Andrew and I had so much picking acorns for the vase!
This wreath is hanging on the cabinets beside the fridge. I have had it for years and do not remember where I bought it. The pumpkin on the island is also from Hobby Lobby several years ago.
This is the dining room: Candle holders were in the bedroom, but they were relocated and replaced with orange candles. The pumpkin is from Michaels and I pushed the flowers through the top a few years ago.
Simple, short, and EASY to pack away for Christmas décor!!
So, do you like to go all out or keep it simple for Fall?
