A common variation of this recipe is to make this tater tot hot dish with corn.  Everyone has there preferences, and don’t get me wrong, I like corn, but corn isn’t something I love in things besides some salsas.

My wife has made this tater tot hot dish with green beans quite often and this is equally as good.  The vegetable you choose to use comes down to your personal preference.

In my video we used a cup of frozen vegetables and a can of green  beans because we didn’t quite have 2 whole cups of the frozen vegetables.  Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix things up with these recipes.  Cooking is supposed to be fun and every family has different tastes when it comes to there family meals.

Overcoming Tragedy-Boston Rocks!


Props to the Citizens of Boston and the surrounding towns for their courage and patience, and to the Law Enforcement authorities who helped bring 1 of the marathon bomber to Justice. You mess with one American, you mess with all of us, and  to those who would want to do us harm with acts of terrorism, you can run but you can’t hide!  Our lawmen are the best in the world!  Let’s not forget the 4 who died, and all those injured, our thought and prayers are with them.

Where Were The Parents? And The Downside of Social Media


After hearing about 2 innocent young girls who took their own lives because they were raped, the boys who did it took videos and pictures and posted them online, we are left wondering:

Where were the boys’ parents when it came to teaching them how to treat women?  You just do not take advantage of a drunken  girl!  You take them back to their own home,not rape them!

And you most certainly do not record your crimes and post it online!

And for the ones who shame the victim and say it’s there fault….there is a special place in Hell for you.


There are downsides to every form of technology, and this one had a tragic end, and there will probably be more….
