Here's what's cooking!

I've got an extra kid today since his mom is at appointments with his little brother ALL DAY LONG. Since I'm totally insane I'm also tossing together some dinner for them. (Have I mentioned that I'm totally insane?)

Here's the menu, recipes to follow.

Farmer's Casserole
Focaccia Bread
Chocolate chip/M&M cookies

Farmers Casserole (Once A Month Cooking cookbook)

6 cups frozen shredded hash browns
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (using plain, lots of kids)
1 cup diced fully cooked ham (leftovers from the other night, bonus!)
1/2 cup sliced green onion
4 beaten large eggs
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1/8 t pepper
1/4 t salt

Grease 9x13 pan. Arrange potatoes evenly on the bottom of the dish (which means dump them in and spread them around). Sprinkle with cheese, ham and green onion.

In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture.

**At this point you can freeze this dish and make it for later. When you go to use it, thaw it out and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until center appears set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

***I'm making two smaller pans of this instead of the one. One for us, one for them!

Focaccia Bread: I got this one at Antique Mommy this morning. Instead of copying the entire thing I'll just link!

And the yummy sounding cookies I have no recipe for. They're from a jar mix we were given when we moved in! :) Happy cooking!

That Farmer's Casserole sounds right up my alley. Cheesy potatoes with ham? What's not to like!
