It was about 6:15 when I remembered that I was the mom and there for responsible for supper. My mind visited my fridge, condiments, eggs, and leftovers. I looked in the freezer, ooh tater tots! I rarely buy tater tots, but every once in while I do. I immediately thought of tater tot hotdish. I grabbed a pound of frozen (grassfed) hamburger out of my freezer and threw it in my dutch oven. I put the tater tots in the oven. Once the hamburger was browned I seasoned it with himalayan salt, pepper, dried wild leeks, garlic powder, and paprika, then I ran outside and grabbed a handful of stinging nettle leaves and chives, ran back in, chopped them up and into the pot they went. I dumped in some leftover (farmer’s market) green and yellow beans that I had in the fridge and then I added in a couple spoonfuls of flour and stirred it up, then I added in a couple of cups of (raw local) milk and a some butter and stirred some more. By this time the tots were done so I dumped them on top and grated some really good aged cheddar on top and put it in the oven and turned on the broiler to high. After a couple minutes the cheese was melted and I chopped up some chives and threw them on top and walla, supper was ready and amazing. Altogether it took about a half hr. Not to shabby! Super mom in the house, woot woot!
