I trust that everyone had a safe and fun Labor Day weekend. We were very busy here at Green Acres with projects, friends and family. I have to apologize for not posting in the last few days it seems as my days have been full getting ready for the JBF sale. I will tell you about it later this week.
As I said we enjoyed time with friends this weekend and on Saturday we helped our neighbor, Tony, celebrate his 28Th birthday. PUP! It was great fun. His wife, Kristi, arranged the celebration as a surprise for him. We celebrated out on their front lawn with some of the other neighbors. Tony broke his hip and femur bone a couple of weeks ago and has been tied down to the house so we thought it would be great fun to get together and celebrate him! We all brought dishes to share, which is always so tasty, while Kristi worked the grill. The meal was followed by the husbands going to watch the Nebraska game in another neighbors, Craig, basement. Craig and Misty are a lot of fun. Once we decided to actually meet we discovered that they were Parrotheads too. You know that made it all good! I don't even want to know how they got him down the stairs let alone back up. Brad assured Kristi he would get him from point A to point B. While they watched the game, Kristi, Misti, Lori and myself sat out and enjoyed the evening and our little Junior Mint. He is such a flirt. It is such a blessing to have the wonderful neighbors that we do.
I brought a new recipe. We had not made these but they sounded great and were. I found these in The Pampered Chef Cookbook, Stoneware Sensations.
Western Potato Rounds
2 large unpeeled baking potatoes
Vegetable Oil Spray
1 C shredded Co Jack Cheese
6 Bacon slices, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled
1/3 C green onion slices
1/4 C BBQ sauce
1. Cut your potatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices, spray with oil on both sides. Place on baking sheet at 450. Bake for 20 min or until lightly browned. I sprinkle pepper and garlic salt on mine.
2. While potatoes are cooking time to cook the bacon. I can't help but burst into " I can bring home the bacon...fry it up in the pan..." some of you know the rest of that jingle. Yes, I am a little warped at times.
4. Once bacon is cooled and crumbled add to onion and then mix in cheese.
5. Top cooked potato rounds with BBQ sauce.
6. Put cheese mix on top of sauce.
7. Put back in oven and bake until cheese melts.
These were great and super easy. Enjoy!
