7 Layer Casserole

I have had a request for this recipe - a classic family casserole recipe. Enjoy!

7 Layer Casserole

Into a small enamel roaster or 8-10 inch casserole dish layer the following ingredients .
Start with:
1 lb. browned hamburger
1 large sliced onion
1/4 cup uncooked rice (sprinkle over meat and onion)
4-5 sliced carrots
5-6 sliced potatoes
1-2 cups frozen peas
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tin tomato soup, diluted with 1 tin water. Pour over casserole. There should be enough liquid in the casserole so you can see it about 1/2 to 3/4 inches below the level of the vegetables.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 hrs. Cover for the first 45 min., then uncover for the remaining time.

As with all casseroles,this recipe can be made as large as you need. If you make a large casserole, use 2 cans tomato soup.

Odds and Ends

Just wanted to show what the bassinette looked like before it was re-furbished by Nana. Quite the transformation.

This gift card holder was made and modelled after one made by a lady in my stamp club. She found the tutorial here. The stamp set is made by There She Goes stamps. I love this little set of stamps.

Past Projects

Nana made baby E a travel bag for his upcoming travels. This one holds a big bag of diapers.

This is a plarn (plastic yarn) clothes pin bag made for a Christmas gift for a cousin of mine.

Just a few more scarves...

A long overdue blanket for my friend's little boy. Two layers of fleece, hundreds of snips with the scissors and as many tied knots later and voila...

He loves the blanket!

Babies babies everywhere!

There has been a proliferation of babies in my inner circle of friends and family. Time to make receiving blankets!

I made matching receiving blankets, burp cloths and hankies for wiping drooling chins. There are several more to be made. Just waiting for a good long afternoon nap from baby E so I can get some more sewing done.
