Cheddar Spirals and Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole

These recipes are so extremely easy and my kids loved them and gobbled up the leftovers. The following are the recipes, but add lots of different veggies to the dish to make it extra healthy!
Cheddar Spirals
1 (16 ounce) package spiral pasta
2 cups half-and-half cream
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. In slow cooker, combine the cream, soup and butter until smooth; stir in the cheese and pasta. Cover and cook on low for 2 1/2 hours or until cheese is melted.
Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole
1 (32 ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes
8 ounces cooked, diced ham --- Personally, I would much rather put veggies in my meal than meat!
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of potato soup
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
2 cups shredded Cheddar--- or any cheese you want
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, mix hash browns, ham, cream of potato soup, sour cream, and Cheddar cheese. Spread evenly into prepared dish. Sprinkle w/Parmesan cheese.
Bake 1 hour or until bubbly and lightly browned.

Jean and Ben came over to our house this afternoon. We had fun showing them around our new home!

Kaleb's pet rooster

I think Allyson must work daily w/the chickens to make them tame and unafraid. She told me the other day that one of her hens sits on her shoulder while she does the today, we all got to see it.

Allyson, you are getting so grownup. Grandmother would be afraid of the chicken sitting on her shoulder. It might take a notion to peck my eye out. Aren't you afraid?

Anne said...

Kaleb, are you teaching your rooster to say cockadoodle do?

Wow, this is great. Silas LOVES chickens and roosters. Every time he sees a picture of one he will make a noise like, "Caacaacaaoooooooo". He learned that from Fran. He would go crazy with all those chickens. Any eggs yet?
