Terrific dish to take for your Labor Day gathering!

Quick!  Do you need something to take with you to a party today?  Might want to follow my lead and take this...you and your guests will LOVE it!!  You might even have all the ingredients in your pantry and fridge.

Today we're going to our friends, the Currie's for a Labor Day dinner party.  We always look forward to times like this and usually when we get together with them it's a collaborative effort of everyone in attendance bringing a dish.  Today I've chosen to bring my Mashed Potato Casserole which is an amazing recipe that I got from my friend, Rhonda Flint.  She gave me this recipe many years ago and I've been bringing it to events ever since. It's not exactly friendly to your waistline but for special occasions now and then, it's just the ticket!

Mashed Potato Casserole
5 lb. bag potatoes
1 stick of melted butter
8 oz. Sour cream
8 oz. Cream Cheese
8 oz. Cheddar Cheese
1 lb. Of Cooked and Crumbled Bacon
1 Med-Large Onion, chopped

Cook and mash potatoes with stick of butter.  Add sour cream and cream cheese.  Turn into a buttered 9 x 13 pan.  Top with the cheddar cheese, cooked/crumbled bacon, and onions.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

Oh how I remember this recipe! I haven't made it in years but your picture is just incredible - I think I'm gonna have to get the potato peeler out today! And by the way, I do so love your blog, how your write, what you say and the memories we had. You are a blessing PD :)

oh that looks yummy
Rhonda, I didn't take this photo, although I do take lots of photos and post them, I didn't have one handy of this recipe and I'm still making it this morning, so I pulled one off the internet. You can find most photos of your recipes if you google and then look under images. Even if it's not the "same exact" recipe you can often find one that looks just like it.

Thank you also for the kind words about what I write. Have such wonderful memories with you too and miss you. ((hugs))

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c
