What surprised me was that a few of my former classmates have read this blog and they like it. I had a few suggest I even try cooking some of these foods. Uhhhh..no!!
I went from 90 degrees to 50 degrees and felt every degree lost when I arrived and felt every degree gained when I returned. Luckily after modem was replaced and my sleep was restored, I found a book tabbed and ready to go.
Casseroles! Hot Dish! Whatever you want to call them, they are all made of pretty much the same stuff and prepared the same way. Dump a few cans of this and a few cans of that and sprinkle some cheese on it and surely everybody in the family will be drooling with anticipation. I know they have their purpose, but again, if there's a dated book on the subject, I'm going to satirize the hell out of it.

|I can almost believe that the creator of this casserole really and truly planned on the cornmeal topper looking like a lattice design.|
|Two layers of Cheesy Hash-Spinach Pie! Tasty as well as thrifty? How about thrifty but probably not tasty? Corned beef hash, spinach, mushroom soup, cheese, and pimento filling. Le yum.|
|Should I ever resort to the "Tuna Noodle Surprise" days, I just found a few more names for canned fish crap product. Cupboard casseroles? How about trailer food?|
|Never try, never fail. I look at this and want to reach for some Tums, two pinks and one orange.|
|How self righteous can a book be? This is making Betty look good. I should buy a few extra pounds of ham just to make this with the leftovers? Seriously? Why?|
|I think the time being wasted on garnishes could be better spent making quality food but that's just me. My take on garnishes is if it isn't going to be eaten then it's not going to be on the plate. I'll accept my naked food and savor it.|
|Another valid reason why I don't like to eat vegetables stuffed with anything.|
|The lack of color in this is soaking up my will to breathe. It's just so, sigh, bland..Sigh..|
|I was lost at the first four words in this description.|
|Okay if this is a paella to anybody that's great. I'll just continue to contemplate the amount and strains of bacteria coating that wooden fork.|
|If my husband had a gathering and I had to make this, then whatever side effects they incur will be on them because this will stink up my house and I hate food that stinks up my house days after I made it.|
