Creamy Hash Brown Casserole

I used to made this casserole a lot for the seeding and harvest crew on our farm.  It's cheesy, creamy and yummy, and nice because it's quick to mix together.  Even my 10 month old little boy loves it. :)

All the ingredients.

Mixing everything together.

Putting on the topping.

Hot out of the oven. :) 

Creamy Hash Brown Casserole 

1 10 oz. can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted 
3/4 c. milk
3/4 c. sour cream
1/3 c. melted butter
1/2 t. black pepper
2 t. garlic powder
1 2 lb. bag frozen hash browns
2 c. grated cheddar cheese
3/4 c. Parmesan cheese

In a large bowl stir together the undiluted soup, milk, sour cream, melted butter, black pepper, garlic powder and parmesan cheese; whisk until well combined. Mix in the cheddar cheese, onions and hash browns. Spread into a 9x13 baking dish. If desired top with some crushed cornflakes, more cheese, or in my case I used rice crispy cereal, which I don't plan on doing again. :)  Bake at 350 for about 40 min until hot and bubbly. 

Hope you enjoy!

ABC Say It With Me, Bible Memory Verses, DVD

“Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” Psalm 119:11

If you are looking for good movies for your children to watch you should consider getting this one!   "A-B-C Say It With Me, Bible Memory Verses",  only uses the KJV and is 55 minutes long.  Already my three oldest children (ages 5,4, and 3) have been quoting verses that they have heard on the DVD.  For every letter of the alphabet there is a memory verse, for instance for the letter "B" the memory verse is: "Be ye kind one to another..." Eph. 4:32, and it shows a little boy being kind to his sister by sharing.  

Here is part of the description taken from the Moore Family Films website:

"Filled with delightful music and endearing scenes of home, farm, and family life, ABC Say It With Me promotes family unity, Scriptural truths, and, most importantly , the gospel message of Jesus Christ. An enjoyable and easy way to memorize and apply the character- building truths of God's Word!"

You can purchase the DVD or download by going here

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."  Proverbs 3:5-6

Those who trust Him wholly find Him wholly true.

Whatsoever ye do, do all to the GLORY OF GOD

An adorable Beatrix Potter picture I found online. :)

"What’s happening in your home today? Is everything piling on top of you--laundry, dishes, and teaching the children all waiting to be accomplished? Don’t throw in the towel, dear mother. Don’t look at everything waiting to be done. Just tackle one job at a time. Priorities first. But do each task with ALL YOUR MIGHT. Not half-heartedly, grumblingly, or lazily. And teach your children to do their chores with all their might, too. Inspire this attitude in them as they see the way you begin each responsibility. What a great day you will have in your home today as each one does everything with all their might."    -Nancy Campbell

 “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy MIGHT.”  Ecclesiastes 9:10

“And whatsoever ye do, do it HEARTILY, as to the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance; for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23, 24: 

 “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17

 “Whatsoever ye do, do all to the GLORY OF GOD.” 1 Corinthians 10:31

 “He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much.” Luke 16:10

"The Earth is the LORD's..."

"The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.  Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.  This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah." -Psalm 24
