When I made this, it ended up dry. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
Yes, occasionally when I cook this, it is more dry than others. When this happens, I just stir in a half cup of milk, some sour cream or even some heavy cream. It just needs a little more liquid to get things smooth again. Throwing in some extra cheese never hurts either!

Family Happenings From Our Family of 9
We recently had a pool given to us by some friends. Once set up we quickly realized it had several leaks. But two tubes of JB water weld and one o ring later the kids were enjoying their new (used) pool. Its been really hot here so we have really enjoyed the cooling effects of the water. Pictured is the five youngest posing a bit!
