~mix together one can Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup milk,

~2 cups grated cheese

~in a large enough area spread out 6 large tortilla wraps warmed or 8 small tortilla wraps warmed and evenly fill them with the meat mixture. On each pile of meat sprinkle a bit of grated cheese. Save any left over cheese for the top of casserole.
Next carefully fold up ends and roll up the sides of the tortillas and place them edge down in the prepared pan. After all the burritos are in the pan spread evenly over the top the mushroom soup mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover dish tightly with foil and bake for one hour or until bubbly hot through out.

~serve with diced tomatoes or salsa, sliced avocado and sour cream. (my husband always likes to have Ranch Dressing instead of sour cream with this and hot sauce, of course.)

Easy Crocheted Kids Hat

Pin It

I used chunky thick warm yarn to make this hat using a size H crocheting hook. This pattern makes a hat that fits size 6 to 12 month little heads. I’m not the worlds fastest crocheter but this only took me about 1 hour to complete. I am experienced though so it may take longer for a beginner. This pattern also works with other yarns. You can double regular yarn, use wool, or other fuzzy thread. my son loves his hat and was so happy wearing this. He hates having tight things on his head and didn’t like the stocking cap I have for him. This sits on his head like a hat and stays on with out being very stretchy and tight. My 18 month old daughter can wear this too but it’s not long enough to cover her ears so make sure to try this hat on your kids head before finishing it off completely you may need to add rows.

chain (ch.) 4. slip stitch (sl.) to first ch. to form a loop

row 1. ch. 2 this will count as the first stitch (st.), double crochet (dbc.) 11 times in the loop just made. Sl. into top of prior made ch.2 to form a circle. 12 st. made

row 2. ch.2, dbc. in base of ch 2., dbc. 2 times in next dbc. repeat from around, sl. in top of ch. 2, 24 st. made.

row 3. ch. 2, dbc. in base of ch.2, dbc. 2 times in next dbc. repeat from around, sl. in top of ch. 2, 48 st. made.

row 4. ch. 2, dbc. in base of ch. 2,( dbc. 1 time in next 4 dbc., dbc 2 times in next dbc.,)* repeat around, sl. in top of ch. 2, 58 st. made

row 5- row 11. ch. 2 (dbc. in next dbc.)* repeat around sl. in top of ch. 2, 58 st. made

if you want to make easy stripes like the hat in the photo simply switch yarn and start a new colour in rows 8 and 9 this is simple to do. Instead of proceeding to the next row and making the next chain twos, cut the yarn 1 inch back from hook and pull all the way through to finish your slip stitch at the end of the 7th row. Fasten next colour of yarn by pulling a loop through leaving a small tail and crochet both the tail and the yarn up in the ch.2 of row 8 to fasten on a new colour. Proceed with instructions same as before and fasten off to finish stripe. Fasten next colour and so on, making stitches according to pattern.

To finish fasten off and weave cut yarn through finished hat in matching colours to hide the tails.
