I just put a hashbrown casserole in the oven. Guess I'll be eating at 10pm tonight.

I'm not sure how this is going to turn out. I elected to buy frozen hashbrowns instead of shredding my own potatoes, because last time I made a hashbrown casserole (different recipe), I had to soak the potatoes and I couldn't get all the water out and it was watery.

So this time I forgot to thaw the hashbrowns. So I put them in a bowl of hot water. Now either there is still a lot of water in frozen hashbrowns or a lot of that water in the bowl leaked in. So I was squeezing the you-know-what out of the hashbrowns again.

By the time I was done, I really didn't have hashbrowns anymore. I had squeezed them all together until they looked like mash potatoes. So what with the sour cream, the bacon, and the cheese, I have a sneaking suspicion that all I made tonight was a twice baked potato without the skin.

I also made a homemade cream soup to put in them and in order to counteract what might be watery potatoes again, I used heavy cream in the cream soup substitute instead of milk. Good thing I'm not trying to lose weight this week.

I made chicken fajitas with onions, bell peppers, and some leftover zucchini. Good stuff.
