It seems like all I’ve eaten since it’s cooled off is soup or stew or chili or something very similar. I decided I wanted something different, and Mom suggested chicken and rice. I actually wasn’t a huge fan of the dish when I was younger, but I think it was a combination of the spices used and too much sour cream. Plus, it’s been at least eight years since I’ve had it, so who knows. Maybe it’ll be my new favorite!

Cheese and rice that looks delicious!



Do you ever have a craving for a casserole? No? Am I the only one? I know a lot of people associate casseroles with bland, over-made, boring meals. But I like casseroles. Mostly because they make packing lunch easy. When I grill or make a side of meat, I rarely want to eat it the next day. And lots of other foods seem to not taste as good the next day. Soups and casseroles, on the other hand, warm up well, are easy to take to work, and if you season them well enough, aren’t bland or boring!

Disclaimer: I think most casseroles, when made as the recipe describes, are pretty boring. Why is that? That’s like how most crockpot dishes rely on cream of something soup. Weird.

Yes, you do see cheese. And macaroni, black olives, beans, tomatoes and ground beef. Enticed?
