Trashy Dinner!

I got a new camera (a Canon Digital Rebel XSi - 12.2MP) and it even makes this throw-it-together dinner look amazing.

Ingredients:
Potatoes (about 6-7)
Turkey Ham
2 lbs. Velveeta
Cream of Chicken Soup
Half can of milk (not pictured)



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Slice the potatoes thinly:



Lay them in a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.



Next, cube the turkey ham.



Place it on top of the potatoes.



The Velveeta gets cubed next.



Place that on top of the turkey ham and potatoes.



Pour the cream of chicken soup into a small bowl (or you can use cream of mushroom soup if you'd like).



Add a half can of milk.



Stir it together so it's incorporated then pour it over the potatoes, turkey ham, and Velveeta.



Place it in the oven for 25 minutes, uncovered. Then bring it out of the oven.



Stir it all up.



Cover it with foil and put it back into the oven for 45-50 minutes or until the potatoes are done. Mine made a bit of a mess in the bottom of the oven so you may want to either not fill the pan as full or put the pan on a cookie sheet. Get it out of the oven and uncover it.



While it's setting a bit, get your vegetable going. I chose green beans.



After the vegetables are done, you're ready to serve!



This was delicious. My husband had two servings. My middle son loved it as well. The toddler thought it was yummy but is not feeling well so she didn't eat too much. The teenager is not home at the moment so we'll see what he thinks later. Anyway, it's probably not very good for you but it is a filling, warming meal.

I got great deals on the ingredients for this meal:

Turkey ham was $2.67
Velveeta was $0.99 (!)
Potatoes were $1.88 for a 10 pound bag (I used about half, maybe a bit less)
Cream of chicken soup was $0.50

Score!

We usually don't eat Velveeta but for such a good deal I couldn't pass it up.

I've got to confess to a liking for Velveeta that goes back to childhood. Nothing makes a creamier cheese sauce. I rarely buy it, but there are times nothing else will do! Now you've got me craving it...

I sometimes use a Canon Digital Rebel, too.
