As I am still working on that dining room, this was the easiest recipe of my week to fix. Last night we resorted to ordering pizza because we were in full on shelf building mode and didn’t feel like taking the time to fix dinner. I unfortunately regretted it for the rest of the night as the pizza gave me incredible heartburn. I was not going down that road again tonight.

We love hash browns of any variety in this house. I did not wait for mine to thaw, it just made it a little more difficult to stir in the soup and egg. The boys really like a recipe like this, I can eat it, but wouldn’t want to have it every night, that’s for sure.

Here’s a peek at the work we’ve been doing for the past week. The shelving is built and anchored to the wall. Filling has begun, although the hope had been to fit all media on the shelves, I think it might take another wall! At this point I have all the books from the kitchen and attic loaded on, I still have my room, 2 boys rooms and living room books. Then I had wanted to add magazine boxes to store all the magazines I keep (mostly photography and cooking types), dvd and vhs movies, music cds and photo albums. We may need to rethink this plan.

I got built in!
