Small quilts are made this day and they are given to the Otsego County VA office - over 400 so far! Fabrics are provided by the group and if you don't want to bring in a machine there's always a need for a seam presser!

Recipe of the Month courtesy of Jennifer
Cheesy Ham & Potatoes
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
2 (10.75oz) cans cream of celery soup
1/2 cup diced onion
1 and 1/2 cup cubed ham (great way to use leftovers!)
1 and 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (36oz) bag frozen shredded hash browns
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (topping)
In a large bowl, soften the cream cheese and mix with the cream of celery soup. Stir in onions, ham, Jack cheese and pepper. Break apart hash browns (do not thaw). Gently stir in hash browns into the cheese mixture. Place in a greased baking dish. Bake covered for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Uncover and add the cheddar cheese, return to the oven until melted. Serves 12 unless you have teenagers like Jen, who is lucky to get 4 servings out of the dish. :)
