Describe your creative side. When I refer to creative expression, it can range from doodling in your journal, home decorating, creating a presentation for your job or organization, to singing, painting, or playing a sport.

Write as much as you can about the forms of creative expression that you regularly engage in. Go on to describe the history of your creative expression(s), and how you think your creative side is a part of your personality and outlook on life.

If you absolutely don’t think you have a creative side, write about how you would like to be creative, and what do you think is keeping you from being able to express yourself in creative ways.

There are several aspects to my creative side. I was actually talking about that tonight with my dad, in fact. Not about what I’m creative with, but how we all are creative in my family, in our own ways. That we had to find the perfect person who helped us to channel that.

I had plenty of other choices, though. 2 cans of green beans, 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, 2 packages of fried onions, 2 cans of yams, 2 packages of gravy mix. Yeah, lots of doubles, 😆

Pie in Your Face

Untitled

I almost have this recipe memorized. I love me some Hoosier Pie. My daughter helped me make two of them today, and tomorrow, she’s going to help me make the Green Bean Casserole. Next week, she’ll help me with more of the other food, since we’ll be doing Thanksgiving at home.

I’m not upset by it though. It’ll be nice to just sit and relax.

Baked Potato Soup

Untitled

Oh god! This was GOOD! It wasn’t exactly like the original recipe! But it was DELICIOUS!

Ingredients

2 large baking potatoes (about 8 ounces each)
6 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion (3)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill or chives or 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups milk
1 1/4 cups shredded American cheese (5 ounces)
4 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled

Directions

Scrub potatoes with a vegetable brush; pat dry. Prick potatoes with a fork. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 40 to 60 minutes or until tender; cool. Cut each potato lengthwise. Scoop out white portion of each potato. Break up any large pieces of potato. Discard potato skins.

In a large saucepan cook 3 tablespoons of the green onion in butter over medium heat until tender. Stir in flour, dill, salt, and pepper. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir for 12 to 15 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Add the potato and 1 cup of the cheese; stir until cheese melts.

Top each serving with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese, remaining 3 tablespoons green onion, and the bacon.
