Cheesy Potatoes with Corn Flakes and other Iowa Dishes
It all started with the cheesy potatoes. You see, this past spring I spent the afternoon at Skyview Farms with some friends. We fed a baby cow and Laura made us lunch. One of the dishes she was serving was Cheesy Potatoes. Not only had a I never eaten them, I had never even heard of them. They’re quite common here in Iowa. It got us talking about other “Iowa” dishes and the North Iowa bloggers decided to have a potluck.
Of course we had to have the potluck and at SkyView Farms. In fact, Lena, the cow in the middle, is the same one I bottle fed back in the beginning of spring. She’s gotten so big!
I decided to make the dish that started the whole idea, cheesy potatoes! I did get the recipe from Laura. It’s posted below.
We had a full spread of delicious foods made by each other. I’ve included some links below. The others will be adding their recipes as they get them posted on their blog 🙂
We had hamburgers with Schmacon (beef’s answer to bacon), ham balls, and broccoli salad.
And for dessert we had a gluten free rhubarb dessert! Everything was so good.
The meal was complete with great conversation and the giggles of little ones playing in the background. We had such a great evening!
We ended the night in barn saying good bye to the cows and the farm cats.
