Bougie Girl In The Kitchen: 7 Layer Tater Tot Casserole

7 Layers of yummy goodness

St. Paddy's Day started off foggy and somewhat cold.  Fortunately, I had this 7 layered container of Tater Tot Casserole to keep me warm. I started off by placing tater tots onto a foil lined cookie sheet.

Next, I sprinkled cracked black pepper and Extra Virgin olive oil onto the tater tots.

On the stove top, I added chopped Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced yellow onions, lemon juice, and Extra Virgin olive oil into a small saucepan. I simmered these ingredients for about 10 minutes over a medium flame.

Twenty minutes later, I pulled the tater tots from the oven and onto a cooling rack. I sprinkled lemon juice over the tater tots. I let the tater tots cool for about five minutes.

Using a large spoon, I placed 1 scoop of tater tots into a large resealable container. Next, I added in  1 scoop of the ingredients from the sauce pan along with chopped pepperoni and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Once, I have added all of the layers, I place the resealable lid back onto the container and gently shake the container.

Epilogue: The tater tot casserole was a hit! I am onto my next tater tot creation.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
