December Daily Day 22

There’s still lots of room in my scrapbook club! For all the details, visit this post!

I search for excuses to make the recipe I’m about to share with you. If you’re in the mood for delicious wintery comfort food, I’d say this recipe fits the bill. It’s potatoey, cheesey and definitely tasty. And, although I look for reasons to make it, this dish doesn’t grace my table near often enough. It only seems to make an appearance when company is coming over. It’s a good thing we’re having company tomorrow!
In the spirit of giving and sharing, I thought I’d share this yummy side dish. A special thanks (and thumbs up) goes out to Kraft Canada for the creation of this wonderful dish- and many more, that have become favorites in our house!
