Crockpot shipwreck

One of my favorite meals is cowboy potatoes. I could eat them for every single meal of the day for months, lol. So when I found this recipe, I was in heaven! and a little jealous that I hadn't thought of it myself :)

6 med potatoes
1 lb hamburger
can of creamed corn
1/2 med onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
salt & pepper
garlic powder

cut up 3 potatoes and put in bottom of crockpot

brown your hamburger

next start the layering. hamburger, onion and corn

next, rest of potatoes and soup. sprinkle on your seasonings. cook on low 6-8 hours.

  1. Is that an oven roasting bag? Do you have to use one when you do the recipe or is it just for easy clean up? Looks good! I may have to try this on Wendell one night. :)


  2. it's a crockpot liner actually. for $1 for 6 they make my life so much easier! they are for clean up. You should, its AWESOME!!

  3. I make that quite often, but I leave out the corn. YUM! :-)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
