VELVEETA CHEESE POTATOES (a type 2 d. recipe)
10 med. potatoes, cooked and diced (or run them through the food processor
like hash browns - it doesn't really matter - does anything Really?)
1 onion - sliced or diced
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese
s & p to taste
2 sticks butter (to clog up the ol' arteries)
3 slices bread - torn in pieces (she writes wiping a tear from her heart)
Combine potatoes, onions and bread pieces into large casserole dish.
Add s & p to taste.
Melt butter and cheese together.
Pour over mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees.
Or until bubbly and HOT. : ]
There is a Really good story to go with this - and it just happened over this
My sn-lw - we'll call him Jason Kennedy (not his real name) absolutely loves
potatoes. So I make this casserole for Christmas dinner.
Then later Jason starts to have leftovers and he doesn't really eat that much
except stuff he REALLY likes.
So I see him put a dab of food on a big plate - and I didn't know that what he was
REALLY gonna load up on was this Velveeta Cheesy Casserole.
Now in the meantime - when we WOMEN WERE CLEANING UP THE DISHES
after Christmas dinner - my younger daughter - not Jason's wife - and I looked at the
casserole and then looked at each other and in exchanging glances Just Knew
that we were going to toss it.
But Jason - thinking that there was a whole lot of this Really good casserole
left - started saying incoherently - WHAT HAPPENED TO IT.
And as if we I didn't hear him the first time he then shouted, 'WHAT HAPPENDED TO IT?'
Well folks - let me tell you he was one p*ssed off sn-lw - and so I managed to promise
him that the very next time 'they' came I would make the Velveeta Cheesy Potato
Casserole especially for him.
But this is not about Jason and the Potato Casserole - but rather about how men do tend
to get obsessed over little things - like Food.
And We Women Know That - See?
We aren't Stupid.
why you might even call me a traditional idiot housewife
