AUTHOR PROCEEDS BENEFIT 

THURSDAY'S HEROES CHARITY!


Review:
I love cookbooks! Especially ones that are giving back to charities. 
I picked a quick and easy recipe, as I was pressed for time one night and not sure what to make. This seemed like a great side dish, and as usual, I was right.
Creamed Potatoes and Peas
I had everything in the house so it was no problem to make. It helped that it wasn't going to require a lot of effort or time on my part. I was starving at this point and am sure the rest of the family was too.
It was delicious too!
I know you're thinking it looks like mashed potatoes with peas, but let me tell you how wrong that assumption is. These potatoes have texture because cornstarch is used.
Oh, what a clever way to feed the family. 
I can't wait to try the Jalapeno Crescent Rolls next!
Be sure to get a copy for yourself, as the author's proceeds go back to charity.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
