Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

32 oz bag Southern Style hash browns (these are the little square kind - not the shredded ones)

3/4 lb cheddar cheese, diced
1 dozen eggs
1 C milk
1/2 tsp dry mustard
salt and pepper, to taste

Layer frozen potatoes, bacon, onion and cheese in 2-3 layers. Finish with cheese.
Beat eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour on top.
Cook on low for 10-12 hours.

Ok. There's a story here. We were babysitting a girl in my ward once on a cool fall day. She was helping me pick the last of the carrots from my garden and she asked me if I could make her some carrot soup. I thought, "carrot SOUP?!?". But, I hopped online and looked up some recipes. This is what I found, and modified. It was yummy!

Carrot Soup with Orange and Ginger

3 Tbs. olive oil
2 leeks, including tender green portions, thinly sliced (I used an onion, as I didn't have leeks handy, but I think leeks would be awesome!)
6 carrots, about 1 lb. total, peeled and thinly sliced
1 red potato, about 1/2 lb., peeled and coarsely diced
1 1/2 tsp. peeled and minced or grated fresh ginger (I omitted the ginger, because I didn't have any, but you can throw it in if you like)
5 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 tsp. grated orange zest
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the leeks and sauté until just slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the carrots, potato and ginger and sauté until the vegetables are just softened, about 5 minutes more.

Add the stock, cover partially and simmer until the vegetables are completely softened, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat.

In a blender or food processor, puree the soup in batches, leaving some texture, and return the soup to the pan. Alternatively, process with a stick blender in the pan until the desired consistency is reached. Set the pan over medium heat and stir in the orange juice and zest. Season with salt and white pepper.

Ladle the soup into warmed bowls. Serves 4 to 6.

So after a few discussions with Julie (The other contributor to this Food Blog) We have decided to make some changes. We want to open the Blog up to other contributors. We would like to document all the Family Recipes. Old, New, Tried, and even Fried. So First we are going to change the URL and the Title of the Blog. Now taking all suggestions... And allowing contributors. P.S. don't feel intimidated, by the Entries with 800 photos. A simple Photo of the End result will suffice, and maybe a few of the tornadoes that take over the kitchen during the process. Or not. So who is in?

Have you ever set out to make something and halfway through realized you were missing a key ingredient? How about 3/4 of the way through? What if you were adding the final and main ingredient and realized it wasnt what you thought it was? I currently have a big double batch of Split Pea soup on the stove. I put all the ingredients into the pot for Lentil Soup. Went to grab the Lentils and realized they were split peas!!! So I guess we will see how it turns out in a couple of hours.

Surprise surprise, it turned out alright.
