Anything can be a casserole- it’s like the hot version of a salad. All you do is throw a bunch of food together and throw it in the oven!
Casseroles are my specialty, because we usually have lots of random food we need to use and because recipes are stupid (unless you’re making banana bread. For the love of all that is good and bananaey use a recipe for banana bread!).
Tonight I made a friendship casserole. It is called that, because everyone who ate of the casserole contributed in some way:
Autumn: provided the chicken, Greek salad dressing (marinade), green beans, and milk
Katelyn: provided the fire-roasted tomatoes
Elizabeth: provided the asparagus and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese
Myself: provided the rice, peppers, onions, sweet potato, eggs, leftover tortillas from the Mexican restaurant (for crust), and creativity
Chaela: provided love and support. She doesn’t technically live with us, so the only food she had with her tonight was a Reese’s peanut butter cup in her car.. I thought that might taste weird in the dish.
Put all these tasty ingredients together, and you get a pretty tasty friendship casserole. I bet your friendship casserole with your friends’ ingredients might look a tad different than mine. I’d love to see you try! Just ask permission before borrowing other peoples’ food. Food is personal. 🙂
