We have been on a modified WW diet, which was started Monday so I haven't been doing my "normal" cooking with lots of butter, cream and cheeses! Tonight will be a lean burger, no bun and lots of steamed vegetables.

Aren't they must-haves with pizza? I worked at Pizza Hut many moons ago, and that was the standard!

VB, can you share your recipe? Casseroles are a favorite and I am always looking for a new recipe to try. Thanks!!


Today, is my brother's birthday. We are going with some friends and family to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. They make the best shrimp or carne asada tacos. I also like the chile rellenos. Too many decisions - I always have a hard time making up my mind.

Cottage Pie.

85% Ground Round browned up and set aside. Make a roux with the beef drippings and some flour. Add a few tablespoons of Glace De Viande along with a tablespoon of tomato paste and a couple cups of mushroom stock (just some ground dry porcini mushrooms steeped in hot water). Salt and lots of ground black pepper. Bring back to a boil to thicken and then the beef goes back in.

Big bag of frozen mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, lima beans).

Yukon gold mashed potatoes. Lot's of butter and a little milk. Chives and plenty of salt.

Beef & Sauce in the bottom of a casserole, veggies next, then potatoes. Bake until the sauce is squirting up the sides and the potatoes are a rich golden brown.

Sure! I am looking forward to this dinner.. I love comfort food!

Creamy Chicken Casserole

-3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (seasoned, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces)
-1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
-1 cup sour cream
-1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms (I use 1/2 cup, sauteed fresh mushrooms)

-1 roll Rits or 1 sleeve Saltine crackers, crushed
-1/2 cup margarine or butter, melted
-1 can Grands refrigerated biscuits (buttermilk)

Directions:
-Melt margarine in large frypan, stir in crushed Ritz until coated.
-Set aside.
-In large bowl, mix together cooked chicken, soup, sour cream, mushrooms and vegies.
-Pour into greased 2 quart casserole.
-Sprinkle crumbs over top.
-Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
-Serve over biscuits. (hot noodles or rice are good too).
