Tonight is the recipe for that casserole picture that snuck into last weekend’s Photos in Review post.
It seems that all good casserole or strata recipes start with a can of cream of fill-in-the-blank or condensed something, doesn’t it?
This one is no exception.
Especially when it’s from a cookbook published in 1972, for the steep brand-new price of $2.95.
We are still eating pretty clean these days, but there is something about a dish that includes Campbell’s Soup that screams “comfort food.”
Why is that?
I don’t keep a lot of canned soups in the house. Well, nearly nothing at all except when one of the kids are clamoring for chicken noodle soup and they don’t want to wait for it to be homemade. And by “they,” I mean Nick.
But this recipe? I think it might be a recipe to keep a can of Campbell’s in the pantry.
It was cheesy.
And full of homemade “your Mom loves you” goodness.
The little bits at the bottom of the casserole dish were the best part.
I kept picking at them.
Thank goodness Mom sent us home with some leftovers.
Moms are good like that, aren’t they?
Usually the Thursday night (hello weekend!) post is my last one for the week, but I might sneak one more in tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes. Trying to catch up, but you know what they say about the best laid plans and all. Especially with me and Friday nights.
