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))

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

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

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
