Hashbrown Casserole

Well hello there. It's been a little while, hasn't it? Did anybody miss me? No? Okay, I'll just sit in the corner and chew on wet cigarette butts.
This week has kicked my butt, not much time or energy for cooking, or taking pictures of whatever was cooked.
First my poor old doggie was feeling bad. He couldn't even walk on Sunday.
But his girl has been taking good care of him, and we've been pumping him full of steroids, muscle relaxers, and quasi-narcotics so he's pepped up quite a bit. Now he's a bit spoiled and thinks he needs to be hand fed baked chicken 3 times a day.

Then we had this little singing shin dig to attend at the girl child's school on Thursday night. It was cute and all, but it sure sucked down a huge chunk of time, especially when that was my only day off last week.

I personally was feeling like the guy in this pic for four days straight. I'm not sure what my problem was but I'm much better now.

Which leads me to....Hashbrown Casserole. I found a new bloggy friend who posted this recipe that is supposed to be like hashbrown casserole served at the Cracker Barrel.

I love that you bake it in an iron skillet. I was a little perplexed when I read the recipe, because any hashbrown casserole I've ever had contained sour cream and cream of chicken soup. But this just had some milk, and beef broth, along with the cheese. I thought there would be no way it would be as creamy and delicious as the other kind, but I was wrong! It's yummy! I was thinking one could even substitute low fat milk and cheese, and call it a low fat dish. Lower fat than the other kind anyway.

UPDATE:  Well apparently the link for that recipe seem to be broken.  I don't want you to go away empty handed if you came here for a yummy recipe, so here's another one.

Oh, I'm so excited that someone tried and posted one of my blog recipes...Yay!

I'm not doing so good the past couple of days...bad toothache...therefore a lack of posting. I'm so glad I'm still able to just read them from time to time though.

God bless!

So glad that you are out of the woods, after feeling like the big green glob for four days. Absolutely does not look like fun!
