A Meal To Remember

How do you finish off a weekend filled with such diverse culinary delights as we enjoyed this past weekend? I pondered blini and paddlefish "caviar", foie gras, or sashimi grade tuna as possibilities, but considering the discerning nature of my well-trained palate, there really was only one choice - Tater Tot Casserole.

My personal recipe includes the following:

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
16 ounces frozen mixed vegetables, cooked according to package directions
10 3/4 ounces golden mushroom soup
10 3/4 ounces cream of celery soup
1 pound frozen tater tots, divided

Time Saving Tip: Use bags of frozen vegetables that can be microwaved in their own container.

Between the canned shelf-stable items, and those that live in the freezer, you would think that this is the easiest a recipe can get. Wrong. Now that you can buy fully cooked burgers to crumble in, and the local super market chops the onions, this is a breeze! Combine that with a frontal lobotomy and even you can cook like Sandra Lee or Ray-Ray!

We paired this with a vintage Grape Nehi even your Company Clerk will love!

Bon Appitit!

And APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!!

That's not funny. It's f--king sickening. A pox on you and your infernal sense of humor.

Lemon-Lime Nehi is better than grape.

I just figured the rest of the post was early onset dementia

Come on after a hard day at the sushi bar I like my casserole with jimmy dean's pre browned sausage . If I make it on Sunday I can heat it in the microwave late at night and reheat it all week long!

No comments on the Company Clerk line. Radar and his bear are sad, but then I played Ho Jon the houseboy when we did MASH in High School.
