on wednesday i do a segment where you have to take my word for it.. either because i forgot to take the picture or the picture doesn't do the item justice.. or just because.. well last week on friday pete's admin. staff had a pot luck.. my niece works for him so she gave me the heads up.. i sent with him crock pot hot cocoa, marshmallow stir sticks and bacon, potato, egg casserole.. everyone loved it and said it was all wonderful.. i have a few photo's before it left the house that morning so i will share those... but the recipes are stupendous and guess where i got all three!! pinterest! yep you guessed it.. ha.. i love that place..

this recipe inspired from here via pinterest...
