Leftover Cheesy Potato Pancakes

Thanksgiving is always held at my house. Each of us chooses a dish to make and we all come together with our dishes, about 20 of us when it's all said and done. 

This year with baby coming, I'm making green beans in the crockpot and literally calling it a day. These always go super fast and you don't have to worry about leftovers in the fridge forever. A few foods always have leftovers though, no matter how much or how little you make of them. Mashed potatoes are one of these foods. 

I'm not a fan of mashed potatoes reheated--so I'm here to share with you a recipe that turns those unwanted potatoes into delicious cheesy potato pancakes. These are absolutely delicious topped with extra cheese, bacon, and a dollop of sour cream. These are absolutely delicious and will get you through the weekend of shopping

Menu Plan Monday #34

Hi friends thanks for joining me again for Menu Plan Monday! We've been super busy this weekend and last week working on the house (not me, husband)--dinner has been off, but I've continued cooking primarily at home. It's always nice to see what I have on the menu and go from there so I'm not running about. If you want to check out my other menus and recipes, you can check them out here

This week I have a fun recipe using leftover mashed potatoes that will be perfect for the holidays! Come back tomorrow for a great recipe for National Mashed Potato day. This recipe will be great for leftovers or an appetizer before the big holiday meals!

Finally Friday!

It's finally Friday, and if you've been following along on my Instagram and Instastories you can see that we had a crazy week. I kinda can't believe that the days are flying by, and that in 8 short weeks are little Carson will be here. I got a little done today, and have this goal of getting all Christmas shopping done and tree up by November 1st. I want everything wrapped and ready to go, I want to enjoy my December and not be running around like a mad woman, even if that means putting up the tree way before I usually like to have it up. This is just the beginning of my confessions--

What's in My Toddler Bag?

Although I have another little one joining our family in the next 8 weeks, I wanted to share what my Toddler "Undie" Bag. Since writing my posts about potty training I have had a couple questions about packing an extra set of clothes, what do the wet clothes go in, etc. 

I have this adorable bag that I literally bring with me everywhere. It's great for swim days cause it's cotton and dries quick when I throw a towel and wet swim suits in the bottom. Plus--Mother of Wildlings accurately depicts what my life is like, even if one Wildling is still in utero.

Menu Plan Monday #33

It's Monday again! We made it through Matthew, and it actually was not too bad except for the wind over here. We did have to cancel our Disney trip this weekend, but instead we got all the walls up in the house--which is pretty exciting. It's totally coming together, I am going to be posting my lighting choices here sometime this week as well as some updated pics of the house. 

This menu is definitely a fall menu. I am loving apples this time of year, and I really do put them in anything. I have a favorite that will be made on Tuesday, and it's absolutely delicious--if you love slow cooker meals, then this one is for you! I have never tried the Apple Gouda Chicken, that I am making Thursday--but anything with gouda is for me. 

I have a delicious dessert coming to you this week--I can't wait to share!
