This past Friday we tried Hash Brown Casserole. It was good. Arnold and I are thinking something more along the lines of a breakfast meal but yet sill very very good. Something to possibly add to the Christmas Morning Lineup! The best part about it was that I'm starting to clue in to 'tricks' to cooking. Like this past week I made Ham, Scalloped Potatoes and Carrots for one meal. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my slow cooker. Partly because it is the coolest thing EVER created but partly because it's so big! When I put in my ham for that night I also put in an extra ham to cook. Once we were done supper we cubed up the ham from the extra one I cooked as well as the rest of the ham from that nights supper. This meant it was ready to go for this meal. Alot less work if you ask me.
Anyway here's the meal you have been waiting for:
