Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes 

Tomorrow is my weekly Drs appointment out of town so I thought I would try something different to make and post…. again… with the potatoes to have with dinner.  A different take on the frozen shredded potatoes. 

These are my ingredients.  I don’t think I forgot anything this time lol!

To start, I added the milk, mustard, garlic powder and cheese to a microwave safe bowl. 

I stirred it up and then microwaved it on high heat for about 6 minutes, stirring it every 60 to 90 seconds, until the cheese melted and it was smooth.

I added the shredded hash brown potatoes and mixed it to combine. 

I poured the mixture into my prepared 9 x 13 baking pan. 

And then baked it at 375 degrees for about an hour, until the top was browned and it was heated through. 

I ended up serving it with some pork chops I cooked in Greek salad dressing topped with a bit of cheese and some vegetables.

“Loaded” Scalloped Potatoes

Last night I decided to try something different with some scalloped potatoes.  I don’t usually make them myself because Chris usually isn’t a fan of non “instant” scalloped potatoes but I still took a chance.  Thankfully, he really like them lol!

Cast Iron Skillet Pizza

As I said in my previous post, I have been planning on making homemade pizza for a  few weeks now and only just got to it Saturday night.  With a nice garlic pizza crust and some wings, we had quite the feast!

The crusts browned wonderfully, as did the bottom of the pizza.  It had a nice texture from cooking it in the cast iron skillet and I will definitely be cooking them this way from now on!
