The older my kids get, the more aware they become of money and possessions. I really try to hard to keep them grounded and not spoiled, but it can be quite difficult. It doesn’t help that I am always receiving packages on my doorstep without any cash exchanging hands. However, I try to teach my kids that time is money. While I may not have to pay for everything we have with cash, I do have to pay for it with my time and skills. They are starting to understand – at least I think they are. They still like to browse the toy section of many stores, and talk about what next toy they want to get. I can only imagine what three teenage boys are going to be like.
Then there’s my little girl. She sure knows what she likes! She is all about clothes, jewelry, shoes and accessories. At least we’ve got a little time before those teenage years when all of my kids will be emptying my pockets on a regular bases. For now, I just need to worry about Liquid Gold Diggers! What is that, you say? Those are the kind of gold diggers who are after scrumptious Velveeta Cheese!
Because I’m still trying to take things easy as I recover from my car accident, I was in search of a super easy dinner that I could prepare on my own. I have been very fortunate in the past two weeks because I have either had friends and family bring meals in for us, or hubby has cooked, or I have been able to heat up leftovers. Tonight was THE night for preparing an actual meal on my own, post-accident. I didn’t want to overdo things so I came up with the perfect meal to satisfy those liquid gold diggers of mine – Velveeta Hashbrown Casserole. This recipe is so unbelievably easy and will definitely satisfy that cheesy tooth!
- 1-30 oz package of frozen hashbrowns, thawed
- 8 oz Velveeta Block Cheese, cubed
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- Preheat oven to 375° and line a 2.5 qt baking dish with foil for easy clean-up.
- Gently combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and transfer to prepared baking dish.
- Bake for 45 minutes, until completely heated through.
With only 4 ingredients and 3 steps that will take no time at all, you can afford to keep on feeding the Liquid Gold Diggers!
