Fathers' Day At My House....

What a great day! I fixed a meatloaf (herb based!) with a portobello mushroom sauce, hash-brown potato casserole, homemade bread and store-bought-but-excellent raisin oatmeal cookies! My son (in town one!) came over and ate the heck out of it! I then had a long, and good conversation with my son in K.C. about his excellent photography on his blog( bouncybouncy.blogspot.com) . He is a top flight writer who has to get back to his strong writing/communicating skills! Please check out his photos, and encourage him to start writing along with those photos! You will not regret it!

Pink and DogB- This has to be a Midwestern phenom, similar to the infamous "green bean casserole"!
1 bag of frozen hash browns
1 8oz of sour cream
1 can of cream o' celery/chix/mushroom soup(pick only one!)
12oz pkg of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 8oz in mix, 4oz as topping.
6oz soft butter
1 cup finely chopped onions
salt,pepper,minced garlic to taste
Mix all ingredients, put into buttered baking dish- bake uncovered 1 hr. at 350F(adding 4oz cheese topping 10 min before done!)The moisture level is up to you-more liquid if you like a "mashed"
texture, less if you want crisp.

MikeM and Queenie- Thanks! He can be an aquired taste, but I want him to regain his sense of humour and writing skills to convey it!

I checked out your son's blog, the photos are great and so is his writing. However I have passed on your message and told him to WRITE MORE!!

I think I might actually be able to make that! And it has potatoes, so I think my daughter might actually eat it! Whoo hoo!
Which soup do you like best?

Your son's blog cracks me up every time I read it. I love his commentary!!

(Mike, get in line.) :D

I'm finding some well funky "avatars" or "monikas" as I personally call them - you know those little portraits that go against your name when you comment ... i'm longing to get one but don't even know how to ... perhaps you can explain?...
... anyway hi! i'm here via a friend of a friend of yourses blog ... how odd it is the further out from normality that I hop some familiar names start creeping back in the comments pages again ...

That recipe sounds brilliant. From what I can remember form school theres barely a calorie in the whole thing. Thats me sorted for tea.
Right then off to this other blog you mention....

pinknest said...

that's so funny...that's pretty much the recipe for these potatoes:

it must be a midwestern/southern thing!

buffalodickdy said...

Ooooh! I forgot to tell you guys about my neat gifts! I now have a kitchen torch! My dessert presentations just got better-and you can use it to "skin" tomatoes and peppers! Also, a Vidalia Onion Chopper-really the first one of these gizmos that actually do a good job chopping uniformly...

Jen said...

That's so great you had such a great day with your family. I'll check out your son's blog for sure.

S* said...

Oooh, yum. Thanks for the recipe. The only thing better than a potato recipe is one with sour cream AND cheese.

Will check out your son's blog now...

snowelf said...

OMG--I SO want one of those Vidalia Chopper thingies! Every time that chick starts scooping out the fruit salad I want to call toll free! :)

It's on my kitchen thingies wish list.

Don't know why, but can't leave a comment on your sons blog, so will you tell him, I think his wit is great and I want to read more.
Hope you don't mind!!
