Mexican Potato Casserole

Sometimes I look for a different side dish that will complement the meal. We have this awesome side dish that will be a great addition to any meal. The Mexican Potato Casserole is easy to put together and can be served for a family dinner or a covered dish event. This casserole has a great Mexican flavor and the next day it is even better, that is if you ever have any left overs.

Mothers Day Salad Luncheon Collection

When I was a young woman, we would honor our Mothers by wearing a lovely corsage to church on Mothers Day. If your Mother was living you wore a red corsage and if she had passed you would wear a white corsage. One of the ladies in the community would have a Mothers Day Salad Luncheon and our church always hosted a Mother Daughter Luncheon with lots of wonderful salads. Those are some of the wonderful memories of amazing ladies who influenced my life, and I am so grateful that God put them in my life. If we were having a Mothers Day Salad Luncheon today, these might be some of the salads that we would find on the serving table.

Roasted Asparagus Chowder

The asparagus in the garden has just been beautiful this year because we have had so much rain.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 4-26-15

We are making a food plan for the last week in April already, where did the time go? My husband has been so upset that Blue Bell Ice Cream has been taken off the market, this will challenge me to make more homemade Ice Cream. We are going to have a really late garden this year because we have had so much rain we can't get in the garden to plant some of our vegetables. We are very grateful for the rain and our lake is full so we will be having plenty of fish on our table. Lets get busy and plan this menu!
