We haven't done potatoes in a while (one of my favorite
things on the table). This HASH BROWN TATER CASSEROLE
recipe is a hands-down favorite at gatherings and goes
with about any type of main dish you can think of. Another
perfect one for a Fall table and even Thanksgiving since
you can assemble ahead of time and I rarely see any
leftovers. Oh and this isn't one you would do any gravy

TIME TO CLEAN UP FOR THE UPCOMING THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY:
Don't be caught with a messy kitchen. Here are a few
tips to help get you started and you can use these
helpful tips all year long.
Cleaning Kitchen Countertops
Use a mild dishwashing liquid for plastic lamination and
rinse well afterwards to prevent residue from getting on
Cleaning Vinyl Floors
Mop with a mild detergent and wait awhile to allow it
to penetrate the ground-in dirt. Cleaning Safety Tip
Don't mix cleaning products like ammonia and bleach.
They can be toxic.
Cleaning with Automatic-Dishwasher Detergent.
Automatic-dishwasher detergent works well on refrigerators,
stoves, floors, walls and glass. Dissolve 1/4 cup in one
gallon of very hot water. Wipe with a dry cloth afterward.
Wear rubber gloves and test first to make sure that what
you're cleaning is colorfast.
Use the bartender's method for speedy stemware washing.
Holding the base, pump the glass vigorously in very hot
sudsy water, then quickly pup it in hot clear water (cooler
water may shatter it) Dry upside down on a cotton towel.
For extra-shiny, streakless glasses, add a little vinegar
or borax to the final rinse water. If glasses have hard-water
stains, rub them with a scouring pad dipped in vinegar.
Never use hot water, harsh soaps, ammonia or washing soda
on silver or gold-rimmed glasses. A well-lathered shaving
brush cleans deeply etched or hobnailed glass especially
well. If eggs have dried on your patterned glass tableware,
rub off the residue with a slice of lemon.
A little vanilla poured on a piece of cotton and placed
in the refrigerator will eliminate odors. After cleaning
the refrigerator add a dash of lemon extract to the rinse
water for a fresh scent.
