Recipe Monday #23 Tater Tot Casserole and a Tiny Tot Technique

For comfort food from the way back machine...nothing beats

Tater Tot Casserole

1 lb ground beef
2 c cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp chopped onion
1 can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cheddar cheese soup
30-40 tater tots
Brown ground beef. Add the onions about 5 minutes before ground beef is finished.

In a 9”x11” casserole dish, put one half of the ground beef and then the cream of chicken or mushroom soup. Add the other half of the ground beef and then the cheddar cheese soup. Cover with grated cheese and with tater tots.

Bake at 350 F for 1 hour.

I typically double or triple this recipe and freeze them in 8X8 aluminum pans so that I have something quick on hand when I need it.

Tuesday's Technique Challenge on Stampin' Addicts is Bubble Wrap Background.  It makes a cute mod background or bubbly look and sort of makes a faux honeycomb look for a beehive card too.   It is so simple that I can hardly bring myself to type instructions. :)

1. Press your bubblewrap onto your stamp pad several times to ink up the bubble wrap.
2. "Stamp" your bubble wrap onto your cardstock.
3. Finish your card as you wish.

My new creation is for Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned 1-1/4 X 1 inch charm, and it uses the Hostess Level One Set from the Occasions Mini Catalog called Picture This.

I made this card using the Just Buzzing By set in 2008, but it is still a decent example:
