This was the time when I crawled into bed. I was asleep before 9:15. Definitely not a normal night for me!

Shadey hates laundry day. Piles of clothes end up everywhere on "HIS" bed.

Kaitrinn cringed while listening to the safety speech at rock climbing. She was there with her girl scout troop. Had a great time!

Tonight’s Cheesy Ham and Potato Bake (Before I forget)

By Louie, No Comments »

The fam (except for picky Miss Shealyn) loved this! Now’s the time to write down the recipe…

1 Onion (sized to taste)
1/2 Stick Butter
1-1.5 o z Flour (about 1/4 Cup)
12 oz Milk
3-finger Pinch of Kosher Salt
Pepper (to taste)
1 Tbsp Prepared Mustard
2lb Cooked Ham
~6 Small Baking Potatoes
Parsley to taste (I use plenty)
1 Pkg Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Prep
– Pierce the potatoes with a fork and throw them in the microwave to cook fully.
– Dice the onion and ham.
– Dice the potatoes once cooked and cool enough to handle. Note: I leave the skins on.

Cooking
– Pre-heat oven to 350F.
– Put butter in large skillet on medium to medium-high heat. When melted and ready to cook, toss diced onion in the butter  and cook until translucent. (No caramelization. You’ll get that in the oven later.)
– Sprinkle flour over the surface of the skillet. Stir to form a roux.
– Add milk. Stir continuously until sauce thickens.
– Add 3/4 of the package of shredded cheddar. Continue stirring.
– Then cheese is melted into sauce, add salt, pepper, and mustard. Stir to incorporate.
– Fold in ham, potatoes, and parsley.
– Transfer to greased glass 9×13″ baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
– Bake in oven for ~30 minutes, or until cheese on top begins to brown a little.

GOOD STUFF!

Seven classmates came over to celebrate Shealyn's birthday. There were no tears OR bloodshed, so I call it a success. Lol

Pants 50% off in sizes 4-14. I needed size 10 for Kaitrinn. How many could I find? ONE! Thought I'd have better odds than that. Lol

Not entirely sure she is MY child. She asked for celery for her snack.
