COFFEE KLATCH FRIDAY

Welcome to the first COFFEE KLATCH FRIDAY!
                                                                       ~The Goal ~ 

To have a community of bloggers that are friends, that can come together once a week with ideas and support for one another. We all blog for different reasons. For some, it is to be heard, for some it is to share, and for some it may be acknowledgement. After all, many blogs are just your thoughts, feelings, and experiences ... that you share  ... and here it is easier. 


                                                                  ~The Format~


Each Sunday night I will post a couple of "get to know you" questions. After all, we look forward to having coffee with our best friends more than anyone else. 


I will also post a subject for that week, which could take any form. It could be a recipe, a craft, a tradition, a photograph ( I am a photographer), or just your thoughts on a subject. The reason to post on Sunday. I want to give you time to think about what you want to share. Many times I want to post on a meme and don't really have the time to say what I want ... the result... I don't post.


So, please join me! 

                                           This weeks questions:
(The first is not really a question, but a request)

Please tells us a little about your self ~ where you live, about your family, about your job, what you enjoying doing ... share what your best friend might know about you.

THEN
                      1. What is one thing you enjoy about where you live?

      2. What is one thing that you don't enjoy about where you live?

This week's subject:
Please share a recipe that you would bring to a COFFEE KLATCH at a friend's house.

Please remember to grab the COFFEE KLATCH FRIDAY button!



If you don't already know, My name is Vicki. I live in the Northern , Mid-Western part of the U.S., also known as the Great Lakes Region. I live between a medium size city and a medium size town ... kind of out in the country.  I have lived here for 7 years.  Before that I live outside a Major city in an area 125 miles south of where I live now. 
 My husband and I met when we were Senior's in high school. We have been married for 33 years and have 3 grown children. Our youngest, who will be 20 next month , moved into her own duplex  (renting with friends) last week-end. So, I guess that means we are "empty nester's" now,  The only one left at home is our 13 year old Rottweiler/ German Shepard, Tillie.
I have worked for a Nationally known Photography Company or over 4 years. I am a School Photographer. Besides photography, I enjoy, cooking, traveling and life!

1. What is one thing you enjoy about where you live?

I love all the wildlife that we see on a daily basis. We have Deer and Wild Turkey going through our yard daily. On occasion,  we see Red Fox , Coyotes, Eagles, Owls, and Hawks. Of course we have plenty of squirrels, rabbits, and birds.



2. What is one thing that you don't enjoy about where you live?

We live in a small community. I miss the variety of shopping and restaurants  that we had when we live in a larger community. Here, if something you want goes on sale, you better get to the store and get it ... cuz it won't be there for long.

RECIPE:
HASH BROWN CHEESY POTATOES

1- LG. BAG FROZEN HASH BROWNS
1/4 C. DICED ONION
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2- 8oz. cans of Cream of Chicken soup
1- 16 oz. tub Sour Cream
1 stick of butter (8 TBS), melted
4 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Mix the first 8 ingredients together in a bowl.
Add 2 c. of Shredded Cheese, mix well.
Spoon into a well greased baking dish.
Top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 until cheese is golden and bubbly, about 40 minutes.

Vicki, did you post this week's question and topic? I can't find it. I'm thinking it is for us to write about for this Friday, Oct.14. Am I right?
