Yum, yum!

We just enjoyed a yummy dinner and good fellowship w/ some friends. I made an old fashioned meatloaf with homemade wheat rolls, mixed veggies and a potato crockpot dish. How tasty! After we all ate, the two men went out and fixed the Ram's van--it needed new brakes. We had planned to have no bake cookies and vanilla ice cream for dessert, but we ladies got involved in looking at dress patterns on the internet--much more comfy than those high stools at the store with the huge pattern catalogs that nearly rip your arm off when you flip them open...(was that a run-on sentence? ;-) Anyway, I thought I'd share the potato dish with you...

Cheesy Crockpot Potatoes
6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced (just pretty much fill up your crock w/ sliced taters)
can of Cheddar cheese soup (mine was Campbells...mm-mm-good...)
3 T butter (I actually used coconut oil, but that's a topic for another day--leave a comment if you want more info)
seasonings to taste (I used salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic powder)

So, you just slice up those potatoes and stick them in the ol' CP (crockpot ;-). Mix up the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour over the taters. I like to give it a stir then, to be sure that no tater's left behind. That's it. Oh, yeah, I cooked mine for 4 hours on low, but that particular cooker I used cooks fast for a crockpot. YMMV (your mileage may vary) according to your particular CP. The lambies thought it was great. Cheese and potatoes...what else could you ask for? LOL

Must run...Lambies are dropping like flies (from sleepiness). Y'all keep your wool dry,

sounds Yummy!
Of course, it's not on my diet...but I've heard coconut oil is good for the thyroid (esp. for those of us who are so very, very thryoid-impaired...we'll try anything!) Are there other benefits I don't know about?
I could see myself making this dish for a pot luck easily though! :) Reminds me of Brenda H's potato casserole, only in a crock! :)
Love you!

Hmmm, Ewe, that sound good!! I can see a couple of variations...maybe add some onion or mushrooms or both. I'll make these one day next week. Now, which crock...the old slow one or the newer faster one ;)
