Easy, creamy and disappears like magic!

This is a great recipe for large meals, holidays and potlucks. At potlucks, I’ve never had leftovers and sometimes didn’t even get a bite of it because it was gone before I got my food.

Want to make it extra special? Try adding ham and mushrooms, ham and broccoli or top with crumbled bacon. Even hamburger and green beans are yummy in this versatile dish.

I mentioned in my Prep for NaNoWriMo post that having freezer meals ready for November is helpful, so I thought I should share what we did this year. My original plan was to keep from cooking tons of dishes and freezing them. I wanted to have crock pot and casserole dishes ready to go with a minimum of pre-cooking. That’s not exactly what happened and it took me more time than I planned. Two days longer than I planned.

I cut down my list several times before we decided on the amount of food we actually wanted to try to stuff in the freezer. I had lots of big ideas and not enough room!

You can’t see everything in the picture, but this is most of it.


I don’t have all the recipes posted, but I’ll keep editing this post and linking to the recipes as I add them. Gives me plenty of things to post during NaBloPoMo.

The full list of everything we made (the hubby was a huge help):

Slow Cooker Salsa Chili

Slow Cooker El Paso Ham

Corn Bread

Skillet Zucchini

Easy Cheesy Potato Sausage Skillet

I feel like I’m forgetting something…
