Christmas Present

My baby sister (by 17 1/2 yrs.) made this for me. So cute. On a saucer size plastic plate. Really cute and so light weight to hang anywhere.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potatoes

This recipe I got from my friend Julie. Her blog is in my side bar "The Harwards'". She has so many GREAT recipes and pictures of her area and her beautiful family. I am so glad I found her blog.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potatoes

Thinly slice 8-10 potatoes into a slow cooker. Sprinkles over potatoes 1/2 of a sliced onion, salt and pepper.
In a bowl mix:
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 ounce package of cream cheese softened
1 can cream of chicken soup ( I have used cream of mushroom)
1 envelope dry Italian Salad Dressing (or Ranch~~different taste with each. I like the Italian)
1 cup milk
Mix this up and pour over potatoes. Sprinkle the top with paprika if desired. Put lid on, cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4 hours. My crockpot takes about 3 hours on high.

I have taken it to a few potlucks and like Julie said, it always goes over well and people ask for the recipe.

Some gifts I made

This is the vanilla I did (started last year 1-17-10), seasoning salt (Paula Deen's) and then the cream that I posted the recipe for.

Boomer Always Sleeping

Amazing how and where cats can curl up and sleep.

Boomer Sleeping

This is my daughters kitten sleeping inside a wreath. The hole is just her size!
