Happy Thursday!

So I don't have alot of time but I made up this recipe a few months back when I was stumped on what to make for dinner! And I made it last night for dinner and thought omgsh I HAVE got to share this recipe!
Now I don't have a picture I got sidetracked last night and totally forgot to snap it before it was gone!

I call it, well I still don't have a good name for it yet! And please bear with me I'm one of those people that just kinda through things in and rarely measure anything! I am trying to get better it's just hard! lol
Anyway, Gosh enough with the ramblings!
Here is the recipe!

1/2-1 lb of ground beef  ( It depends on how meaty you want it! )
1 can of cream soup ( I have used celery, mushroom and chicken before. But mushroom and chicken do the best!)
1 3rd of a onion chopped however big you want them! (your choice of onion they all work!)
pepper to taste
salt to taste
I use a bit of table salt & Garlic salt!
 5-8 medium potatoes ( I cut them in 1/4s and then slice them they cook faster, Also I leave the peel on them and just wash them real good!
In large skillet! ( I use my electric skillet ) brown ground beef and as soon as you don's see alot of pink anymore add the onion and potato (depending on how greasy your beef is you might have to add a bit more oil for the potatoes! Cook on medium heat until potatoes are soft and slightly browned, add can of soup and half a can of milk ( pour the soup in and then fill the can half way with milk and dump that in there)
.let simmer until heated through !
Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes.
And serve!!  :)
You can put just about anything in it! like corn, mixed veggies, mushrooms well ANYTHING! lol
Hope you enjoy it as much as we doo :)

Well not off to figure out what I'm going to make for dinner and to try and get my fabric organizing done today! I want to work on projects so bad!

Happy Thursday!

WOW So the past month has been SOO CRAZY!
Why it's been busy,
The hubs side of grandparents were in town for TWO weeks! I love them to death and it's so great that they are able to come up here twice a year from CO to spend time with all of us! but omgsh It gets soo exhausting! lol
Then LOADS of baking! It was a blast I loved it! just took alot of time!
We had our annual Christmas party-Next year I'm thinking of doing a new years instead..
Spent three days at my moms over Christmas, She doesn't live far but with the roads and weather it was just easier to stay up there! The day after Christmas is her Birthday so we spent that with her and had a ton of fun!
wow when I type it up it doesn't seem like I had that much going but I did! lol
This week and most of last week I have spent my time getting my house back in order.. It needed some serious TLC I have most of it back together and clean now just working on my craft room! :) it's getting better should be done with it today!
The hubs Totally blessed me for Christmas!
I got a Cricut! Which I have been wanting ohhh so badly since I first saw there info commercial! And then he also surprised me with a Brother 60 stitch computerized LIGHT WEIGHT sewing machine! It's amazing! Although outside of the couple days at my moms I have yet to get to play with them much because I have been so busy with CHORES!

My Birthday is coming up here soon! And I'm thinking about trying to do a give-a-way for it! I'm not 100% sure yet! but that's what I would like to do too!
I'm also thinking about doing a Craft room show off! where everyone will link up to it and show off there craft rooms! :) I think it would be a ton of fun! :)

Well I'm off to try to finish my craft room! :) Wish me luck! I'm organizing my paper today! :)

God Bless!
