It's official. I started a facebook page for this blog. I figured that having a way to keep everyone updated when I post something new would be better then hoping that everyone just comes back here to check for new stuff. Since I've been "pinning" my recipes to pinterest I've gotten a lot of traffic on my blog! YAH! But now to keep the traffic returning daily!

So.... here it is- Three+One=Four- Family Blog & Recipes Page

Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

I'm back for another Pinterest recipe dinner.  This recipe looked easy to make and I already had all ingredients in my freezer.

1 (32 oz.) bag frozen tater tots
                                                                                    1 (3 oz.)bag bacon pieces
       1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk
salt & pepper, to taste

Place half of tater tots and 1/3 of the bacon bits into bottom of slow cooker/crock pot.

I didn't have any cheddar cheese, but if you did you would then put 1/3 of the cheese on top. Then add your chicken and salt and pepper. 

Add another 1/3 of bacon bits and 1/3 of the cheese (again, no cheese for me). Then rest of the tots and remaining 1/3 of cheese and bacon. 

Pour milk all over the top. 

Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. I have a fairly old crock pot and I cooked mine for 5 hours and it was perfect. 

I didn't have cheddar cheese, but I did have mozzarella that I added to the top once it was one cooking. 

I enjoyed this casserole, however, I don't think I will make it again. It was good but just seemed to be missing something. It seemed like it needed to be creamier. Mike added some ranch to his, but that didn't "fix" it for me.

6 months old

I cannot believe Mason is already 6 months old! He had his 6 month check up the week before his half birthday. He weighed in at 13 lbs .01 oz, 28 inches tall and his head is 18 inches around. He's growing good except his weight is still low. He can roll all over the place now. And today I noticed his top tooth looks like it's starting to coming in (he already has 2 bottom ones) He's getting pretty good at sitting up, but it's hard to balance that GIANT head. HAHA!  He sleeps about 11 hours a night and only wakes once or twice to eat depending on what time he goes to bed for the night. Overall, he's a good little guy and we love him to pieces! 

22-27 weeks old

Half a year old already!
He's wearing his hat from the hospital. It just barely fit.

September Marley talk

Trying to explain to Marley what days she goes to school and what days she has swimming.
Me- "You go Monday, Wednesday, and Friday"
Marley- "Ha, you said Friday, like french fry. Let's call it french fry day"

Talking about the pool at the YMCA to my mom and sister
Marley- "The water was so cold. It was like 100 in there"

After catching a spider-
Mike- "what's your spider's name?"
Marley- "Mister Bitey Face"

Marley- "When I'm 14 can I get a jack-o-lantern?"

1 package stove top stuffing
1 1/2 lb. chicken pieces
1 small can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 bag mixed veggies

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare stuffing as directed on package. Set aside.

Mix chicken, soup and veggies in dish.

Top with stuffing.  Bake for 35 minutes.

Delicious! My favorite part is the stuffing.
