Has the New Year’s Cleaning/Organizing bug bit you as bad as it bit me? I can’t seem to stop! All I want to do is move stuff around, re-decorate, re-shift, and down-size. It doesn’t help that in addition to wanting to make things both look and feel cleaner, I am really ready to move already!
Isn’t that horrible? I mean, we have been here only 7 months and I am already wanting to look for someplace new. Yes, where we live is beautiful, and it has tons of natural lighting (when the sun is out!) and we have good friends who live in the same building/complex as us. But walking the dogs in the winter SUCKS! It’s really cold out there. And I am not a fan of bundling not only myself up, but Ladybug as well just to take Peanut outside so he can sniff the air for five minutes and then decide he doesn’t really have to go after-all. Please insert backyard here!!
We still have 4 months left on this lease before we can move out, but I am definitely going to start looking around. Especially since finding a place to rent the first time was such a debacle. So for now I’m entertaining myself with reorganizing every room and cabinet that I can. Don’t tell Joel, but I already spent the better part of this morning completely rearranging the kitchen! He hates when I do that (it might happen more often than you think…) because he can never find anything! But I didn’t move anything he uses! The forks, plates, and cups are exactly where he left them. It’s all the other stuff – the pie plates, the covered baking dishes, the cookie cutters. All that stuff, all my stuff, is in a new area! I have a lot more counter space now!
This cheesy potato casserole is the perfect side dish for your holiday menu! Easy, delicious, and so cheesy! You will be wishing for leftovers!
2 lb. frozen hashbrowns (the square kind)
