Black and White Wednesday

Well I am trying to get better at posting and I think that with Recipe Monday and Black & White Wednesday I might just accomplish my goal! My friend Lisa at The Long Road to China started B&W Wednesday and although I missed last week I knew I could participate this week. My nephew Austin turned 3 this month and I took his birthday pictures and I turned a few of them into black & whites. This one was my favorite....

Recipe Monday

Well my good friend Colleen started a new thing a few weeks ago called Recipe Monday. I have been a little out of it with some computer issues but am ready to tackle this one today. I made this on Friday night but unfortunately I did not take a picture of the finished dish. So here is my entry:

Cheezy potatoes:

6-7 Potatoes
1/4 c. milk
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 sm pkg Colby/Monterey Jack cheese (finely shredded)
1 tube Ritz crackers

Spray the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Peel and cut potatoes, rinse and put on the bottom of your dish. Pour in the milk, cut and add the butter around the dish. Sprinkle on the cheese. Bake for about 35-45 minutes at 350 degrees. After, crush the Ritz crackers over the potatoes and bake another 15-20 minutes.

This is a recipe you can halve if you want to. One thing I also like to try with this one is add bacon (either bits or real cooked bacon) just before adding the crackers -- my meat eater of the family loves when I do that!

B & W Wednesday

My good friend Lisa has started a Black and White Wednesday where you process a picture of yours in B&W. I love black and white pictures but I sure don't know what I am doing. LOL I like this picture but I think Olivia's face looks weird but this is my entry anyway.

My pretty Sophia

Sophia turned 5 a month ago and she seems to have just grown up on me overnight. She is a sweet, stubborn, beautiful little girl. She is such a girly girl too. She is ready to start kindergarten but mommy -- not so much. She likes to lay in bed and "practice my reading" as she says but can't read anything yet. I am tempted to start teaching her but am afraid of teaching her before she's ready. I hope she loves to read as much as Olivia and I do.
