Have you ever tried to plan a meal while moving?!?!?!? Talk about a hassle especially when trying to entertain a 9 month old on top of that. Lets just say its been a stressful couple of weeks, but this meal was one thing that made our lives easier. This casserole dish saved us on more than one night as we tried to pack up the house considering it was about the only pan I had to actually cook a meal with. Not to mention that the food is on a plastic plate and the casserole got backed in a tin foil casserole dish.
The good news is that we did finally make it to Lubbock! Now we are just having to wait until Thursday to close on our house so I can finally break in our new kitchen. I’m pretty sure I will be in heaven……we have two ovens!!!
The best part about this meal is that you can freeze it for a later use.
