mashed potatoes with a spinach twist

I wanted to make some seasoned potatoes for dinner and noticed a 10 pound bag of potatoes for $1.99.  It was cheaper than buying two individual potatoes, so I went for the bulk purchase.  In light of trying to use up 8 pounds of potatoes I found a Potato Spinach Casserole recipe on allrecipes.com.  OK so I didn't follow the recipe exactly and ended up with mashed potatoes with spinach in it- but it tasted super yum and my tummy was satisfied!  My additions are italicized below.



Ingredients
7 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 cloves garlic
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish. I didn't do this part
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and garlic and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.
In a large bowl combine mashed potatoes, spinach, sour cream, butter, green onions, salt and pepper. Spoon into prepared dish.
Bake for 15 minutes. Top with cheese and bake 5 minutes longer. I didn't do this part either, I was hungry


I should also note that I gifted myself a Canon 60D and this is my first food photo!  Better quality photos to come shortly...I hope!! 


Smile and say Cheese!!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street... Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house... In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the w

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.   Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for
