Today's Blog-Sitter is Heather from Sweet to the Soul!
Heather has not one... but TWO delicious recipes for us! And this is some yummy, down home, homemade, stick to your ribs cookin'! I have a recipe of my own (shocking, yes- I know...) that is very similar to her Cheesy Potato recipe... So I KNOW that hers is simply amazing! And would be the perfect thing to take to summer potlucks and barbeques!
Heather is angel who I am looking forward to meeting in person VERY SOON (picture will follow - promise!). Her daughter, Lovebug, is the same age as Sweetpea. Not only are their birthdays just weeks apart - so are their diagnosis dates. Heather's youngest daughter, Princess, was also diagnosed with Type 1 just two short months ago. Heather is doing an amazing job caring for TWO children with D. Please stop by her blog and say HELLO and give her some encouragement!
Thank you, Heather! I can't wait to try this out!
Country Salisbury Steak and Cheesy Potatoes
A friend made the Cheesy Potatoes for me after I had one of the girls. It has been a favorite ever since! I love these two together for a meal. I usually have a salad too.
