Happy Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! I went grocery store shopping yesterday and I bought some onions for this recipe--I am going to use my deep fryer for these--> Click on recipe to enlarge-->
It is out of the Taste Of Home Magazine --August/September 2003 issue.
Last night I made the Golden Potato Casserole--Best potato side dish I have ever had--it was scrumptious! I forgot to take a picture of the casserole out of the oven, this is the casserole after dinner in a container ready to go in the fridge:)
Golden Potato Casserole:
6 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
4 cups of cheddar cheese (16 ounces)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup--undiluted
1 cup of sour cream 1/4 cup of melted butter
8 green onions chopped--(I used 4)
Dash of salt and pepper

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 12- 15 minutes until tender. Drain.
In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients; gently stir in potatoes. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish (dish will be full). Bake, uncovered at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Here is a picture of my happy fridge after I went shopping---I went to Walmart and the Grocery store. I still have to go to the Farmers Market--

I am one of those people that just loves to stay home and putter--I love to clean, organize, cook, bake and just play house.

I am not a big fan of the park--but I go, because my kids love it there----on days that I don't feel like the park--I let the baby run in the back yard--it is a pretty big back yard---but at the park, it has the sand and the fun toys. At my last house, we had this wonderful swing set--but because of the angle of my yard, it would not fit here---I would like to get some sort of play thing for the yard though--it is not always warm enough for the pool---okay, anyway---my daughter is supposed to go to gymnastics today or tomorrow--which ever day my sister decides she wants to take Emma--the girls are going to do it together--so whatever day, we are ready--Alexis is excited, and I think it will be fun for the girls to do it together.

Tonight's dinner:
South western Onion Rings
Pork Chops
Fresh Green Salad
(and leftover Potato Casserole)

I took all the trash out of the house, today is trash day--Kevin wheels the big cans to the curb, and I just fill them up..LOL. I have a load of laundry going, I watered the grass already and now I need to empty the dishwasher from last night. I also have this project I am going to do, I have these two built in shelves in my house upstairs and I loaded them with pictures, but it looks cluttered so I am going to straighten that out. .....and of course outside time--I am going to get the kids to the park and let them RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Happy Wednesday!

I love to stay home and putter too. On days that I have to go into town it seems like nothing gets done at home. I have always been a homebody though.

I love onion rings, but have never made them. The potato casserole looks good and I love the way your fridge is so organized.
