The food theme for February is: Casseroles! And you thought soup month was good…
I have always wanted to be better at casseroles. We didn't eat them when I was growing up like my husband (who is now slightly terrified of them). But the concept is so practical! In fact, one of our Beauties is a part of a frozen dinner club, where they prepare multiple casseroles, freeze them, and then exchange them with the other members. That way you are preparing one huge meal and getting multiple various casseroles in return.
Even if you aren't organized enough to be a part of a meal club, you will surely know someone some day who has just had a baby or someone who just broke their elbow (me) and would love almost ANYTHING hot and made with love. You really should have one go-to casserole you can put together on short notice.
Thank you to our friend Hillary for inspiring me this month and delivering a home made shepherd's pie when I broke my elbow. We didn't even wait for it to thaw and my family ate it so fast it was slightly shocking (really, both children!).
So I challenge you this month to make two trays of your casserole recipe and pay it forward! Then report back on the giving.
