Loaded with Flavor *Review & Giveaway*

Who doesn't love POTATOES! One of Gods' greatest creations, in my opinion! Here in south Texas they are an everyday item, just like pasta is to the Italians. Well, Mexicans eat just about anything, but we use potatoes a lot! Go to a Mexican restaurant for breakfast and they have potato n egg tacos.... go for lunch, they have chorizo, beans & potato plates, go for dinner and they have potato enchiladas! Even if you go to a Chinese restaurant they have scalloped potatoes (Mexican-style)!

In our family we're big on baked potatoes and Betty Crocker Potatoes (both mashed & au' gratin)!! We use Betty Crocker potatoes when we're short on time and don't have any on hand. I would love to go to the store and get some organic potatoes and make from scratch, but driving over 30 miles to get them? Just no logical in my eyes. We have a new box in our stores, "Loaded Mashed!" I mean... come on.... "Loaded Mashed" in just 8 minutes?! Timesaver! Plus they are make with 100% real russet potatoes and great seasonings, Hubs still adds pepper! lol You can even plan ahead these meals and lots of variations at BettyCrocker.com

If you see on my Menu Plan for this week... yesterday was "leftover" day. I did a variation of Sheppards Pie like the one found here at BettyCrocker.com
I dumped the chicken from the tostadas along with a bag of mixed veggies n cream of chicken in a casserole dish Then I made the potatoes (added Spanish spices) and spread them on top. All I had to do was bake till boiling and I sprinkled some shredded cheese on top before serving! It was so delicious! Because it's so easy to make there are so many different options for them! Check out my photos..... 
<<----BOIL! I also added a bit of salt, not too much.

^Then^ I poured it out into the mixing bowl that Betty Crocker sent me (Thanks!) and added in the milk and butter. I used local organic milk and butter and stirred just a bit till butter was melted.

Next---->> I dumped the mix into the bowl and mixed slowly and carefully.

Like I said... it's super easy to get these ready for your family...... BOIL, MIX & SERVE! That's it! Really! Well, you do have to measure the water & butter, but who can't do that? Here's a photo of what else we did with the box of potatoes... each box comes with two pouches to make two different meal.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
