A Week's Worth of Amazing Casseroles
{with Country Crock!}

 

What is your family's take on casseroles?  I find that you either love 'em or you hate 'em.  A friend of mine told me once that she served a casserole to her family and they looked at her dumbfounded, waiting for the rest of their meal.  She had to explain to them that the meat and the vegetables and the bread-y stuff were all mixed together in one dish and assure them that it would taste delicious, even if it didn't look like it.

I was raised on casseroles so I love them!  Now they're my go-to family dinner favorites -- the recipes that I know will be easy and make my whole family happy.  When I think of comfort food, I'm usually thinking of casseroles with all their warm, cheesy, yumminess.  When I was growing up, my mom used to make what we called "Dump Casserole".  An unfortunate name, but such a delightful food.  It was basically chicken and rice in a creamy sauce with any leftover veggies from previous nights' dinners dumped in and cooked on up.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it!  She also regularly made Tamale Casserole, which was another family favorite.  It had chunks of cut-up tamales, elbow macaroni and cubes of cheese melted in a yummy tomato sauce.  We ate it with slices of white bread and butter. 

One of my favorite things about casseroles is that I can usually throw them together earlier in the day and save them in the fridge.  Then, when dinner time comes around and we're still up to our eyeballs in homework, I just have to stick it in the oven and dinner finishes preparing itself.  They're also super budget-friendly.  Don't tell my family, but I usually use half as much meat as the recipe calls for and just double the veggies to make up the difference.  They won't ever know and they leave the table perfectly satisfied.

So!  Are you a casserole-making super star?!  Country Crock would like to reward your domestic-diva-tude.  All you have to do is enter the Country Crock Stars contest by sharing a photo of you with your favorite casserole and explaining in 100 words or less how you demonstrate creativity and resourcefulness in the kitchen.  Easy cheesy!  You could win some really great prizes . . . you know you want to check it out .
