Afternoon Getaway

We made a quick trip to the mall yesterday to get some early school shopping done. Everything was on sale! Score! The girls were like,, only not in a candy store but in Aeropostale. Big sale going on right now. If you have one near you and that is your taste--hit the 70 percent off rack. We got some great deals and got away from home and work for a few hours.

Oh yeah, and did I mention that we went to the Little Debbie Thrift Store?

For those of you who have squash running out your ears, here is a great Squash Casserole recipe that we have been making for years in my family.

Steamed Squash with onions
8 oz. sour cream

2 cans cream of celery soup

grated raw carrots (maybe 1 or according to taste)

2 tbls. butter, melted

1or 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers

After you have steamed your squash and onions and drained it very well, add the sour cream, soup and grated carrot. Mix well and place in a casserole dish. Add crushed crackers to the melted butter and use as a topping for the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbling through.

This recipe makes a 9x13 casserole, if you need it smaller, just cut the recipe in half.

Bake and enjoy! Delicious. This is one of my favorite late night snacks lately!



  1. Just found your blog from a comment on The Old Red Barn blog. I'm looking forward to following your blog. I have actually BEEN to Murphy, NC! My brother teaches at John Campbell Folk School. Beautiful area!
