1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can Cream of Celery soup
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. ketchup
1/2 c. diced onions
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 c. frozen diced potatoes (Southern hashbrowns)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat and drain.

Home Tips--DIY Ice Pack


My daughter's soccer coach told me about DIY ice packs and now we use them for everything!

Making one is simple. All you need is a gallon storage bag, 3 cups of water and 1 cup of rubbing alcohol (3:1 ratio). 

Pour the water and alcohol into the bag, close, shake well and then freeze. When it's ready (I let mine freeze overnight), the bag will be really cold and have a slushy-like consistency but won't freeze completely. 

Give it a try! For more home tips, check out the Tips & Tricks page!

Hearty Beef and Cornbread Casserole




We do a lot of casseroles and Crock Pot meals at my house. They're quick, easy, inexpensive and everyone loves them! And with school back in, I need quick and easy. How about you?

Now this is not an ad for Weber Gourmet Burger seasoning, but let me tell you, this stuff is great. Any time I have a ground beef recipe that's a little bland, I add about a teaspoon of seasoning and it really kicks up the flavor without being too salty or spicy. We use it on our burgers too!



Ingredients

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 tsp. Weber Gourmet Burger seasoning (optional)
salt and pepper to taste.

1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
3/4 c. milk
1 egg, beaten


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a 2 quart (11 x 7) rectangular casserole dish, mix together cooked ground beef, soup, 1/2 c. milk, onion, cheese, corn and seasoning.

3. Mix muffin mix, milk and egg. Pour over beef mixture. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

Even though I'm an earth tones kind of gal, I love what a cool neutral can do for a room.

These bloggers show that adding a touch of grey can also be an affordable DIY project! Check them out--links are below the pictures.
