Sweet baby goodness!!! Hashbrown Casserole


I’ve mentioned off and on that it’s been a crazy few months and today proved to be one of those days. I’ve learned a few things today! First off, cooking and frazzled doesn’t go hand in hand. I was so confused and so lost. Ya’ll just don’t even know….I had invited my mom over for dinner and Cooper kept on and on and on about hashbrown casserole, so I sent my husband out to get the ingredients. I forgot some of the ingredients while I was throwing it together…so I learned another thing. The other thing is, if you forget some of the ingredients, it still tastes good….but it is better with all the ingredients….UGH…I never do that!

I had gotten this recipe from a lady at cub scouts. She’s a nice lady. As was her husband. I really loved their child. He’s such a sweet and bright boy. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant for us to be friends. I really did try to show my best southern hospitality. Unfortunately, they were convinced that we did something we didn’t do….I still don’t understand that. Looking back, I know they thought I was guilty because I asked what was wrong on several occasions over the course of a week. Yes I knew where they lived, but that doesn’t automatically make a person guilty of something. I only asked because the older kid had already told me what was wrong, because their older kid had told him, and they were upset and it was very clear they were upset…All it really was, is I wanted to help. I should have just said yep, I already know. If I can help, then let me know.

It’s really impacted the younger kid. Their younger kid and my child are in school together. My kid says that after it happened the boy would point at him and talk about him. It really upset me, but I told him to let it go. No since in crying over spilled milk. However, the day came when we eventually just wanted to fix the issue, so that our kid could feel comfortable. Yeah that was a NIGHTMARE. I’ve realized now that no matter what you do you can’t change someone’s opinion of you. I hate that this person doesn’t like me, because I thought we could be great friends…however, I’m grateful that it’s done, because I didn’t then and don’t now deserve to have someone treat me horribly. Drama isn’t something I’m interested in, but I’m also not interested in being alone. In all my life and all my married life, and motherhood life, I’ve never had anyone accuse me of such crazy things. I still don’t understand why this particular family felt they were so special. Just crazy…However, in the end, I’m grateful for the lessons and the other things I left this friendship with…especially for hashbrown casserole. So to this woman, I call A….Thank you for everything you’ve given me. Ya’ll enjoy this recipe, it’s truly the best! A was amazing for giving me this!
