Side Dishes – Mashed Potato Casserole

The Nativity Story

At youth group on Sunday evening, we’ll watch The Nativity Story. This film came out in 2006, and is a good depiction of the the events of Jesus’ birth, so I decided to share it with the youth, since it’s pretty likely few of them have seen it.


The movie garnered attention on its release a few years ago, but it hasn’t received a lot of press since then. It’s a great seasonal movie, though, so I think the kids will enjoy seeing it. I think it’ll help them understand all that Mary and Joseph experienced to gain an appreciation of the history of the nativity story. It’s a wonderful film, and I look forward to seeing it again.

Mashed Potato Casserole

This recipe (p. 29) from Doris H. is a fine variation on the way I normally make mashed potatoes. I usually add butter, milk, and salt. This adds other ingredients too–cream cheese and sour cream, which makes the dish more creamy and tasty!



This dish accompanied our Thanksgiving dinner, and was a tasty addition.IMG_0597.JPG
