Hey guys! We had our first cold front blow thru this week and I must admit, I’m loving it! I thought I’d share with you one of my recipes I made this week for dinner. It’s Shepard’s Pie with Cheesy Tator Round Topping instead of the traditional mashed potatoes.
1 lb. lean ground beef (can use regular, just drain fat after cooking)
1 bag frozen mix vegetables
1 small jar brown gravy
1 small can reduced fat cream of mushroom soup
1/2 bag of tator-tot rounds
1-2 cups of reduced fat shredded cheese
seasonings of your choice for meat and filling mixture
Cook the tator rounds as per instructions on the bag. While these are in the oven, you can brown the beef and season to your liking.
2. Next, add your mixed vegetables, brown gravy, & cream of mushroom soup. Season and stir to mix. (I used a sprinkling of garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, & pepper) Remove from heat.
3. Place the beef mixture in a casserole dish & top with the tator rounds.
4. Add 1-2 cups of cheese, depending on your liking. (I used about 2 cups)
5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 min. or until cheese is melted. Dig in and enjoy!
I hope your family enjoys this as much as we did! Thanks for stopping by!
Hello! This past Friday was the 1st official day of Fall, yay! Bring on the cooler weather and pumpkin everythaang!!
I like to decorate for Fall and then around the 1st of October, I re-arrange/put away some of my decor and transition it into Halloween. Today I thought I’d share with you how I decorated my kitchen & nook area for Fall.
That’s it my friends! I hope you enjoyed the tour. I’ve linked similar items for you down below if you’d like to re-create any of these looks.
I’ve finally busted out the fall decor and pumpkin everything! I was wanting a few more faux pumpkins (because you can never have enough, right) for my mantle and I remembered seeing them at the dollar store a few days ago. They are the brightest shade of orange and I thought maybe I could paint them to match my home décor.
So that’s exactly what I did!
I mixed a little of brown and white paint to get the color I was wanting. Then I applied 2 coats with about 10 minutes of drying time in between. I went back and added some dimension with a slightly darker shade in between the segments. After they were completely dry, I added 1 coat of matte varnish to protect the paint from chipping.
Here they are completely dry with a bit of Spanish moss around the stem!
I just love the way they came out and they look great up here on my kitchen hutch!
This a fun and inexpensive way to add some fall touches to your home. You can paint them whichever color you like and get pretty creative with these. I hope you enjoy this little project and I’d love to see how you incorporate these into your home decor!
