I have never before seen such a thing.  Are subscriptions available for this newsletter?

The wife makes an awesome tater tot casserole.

I have never heard of such a thing... why oh why has this never been in my life before?!?!

It totally should be.

Those are the choices we have for tomorrow's office dinner. Both are of the grocery store deli variety. I am not sure which will be more painful. Please disgust me on which is worse. Remember to show your work. Finally, free food is free food!Marmot

So what's the difference between a casserole and a hotdish? Inquiring Southerners want to know.

That's not cheese, but rather cream of mushroom soup.

 

Of course. The "mother sauce" of the midwest.

That stuff makes me vomit. It doesn't come near my house. I'm not really sure where Campbell's is located, but I never thought of that as a Midwest thing so much as just a bad food thing, like tuna casserole.

But it seems to have been adopted by the Midwest.  I was served 'enchiladas' made with cream of mushroom soup as the sauce base.  WTF?  A roommate's family's favorite chicken dinner, drumsticks baked in cream of mushroom and cream of celery soup.  Thank god I can't eat the stuff anymore.  

 

I did make my own version of green bean casserole.  I caramelize onions with the mushrooms, add balsamic vinegar and sour cream, and then add cooked fresh green beans.

My wife makes this much more often than I am comfortable with. She knows it isn't one of my favorite dishes, but I eat it anyway because it's an easy dinner for her and (much to my chagrin) the children love it. :(

Yeah, enchiladas are definitely a Midwest staple.  :D

You'd be surprised how many times I've been served 'enchiladas' in the Midwest.  I use the term loosely because I think the only chiles used were canned pickled jalapeno slices.

Maybe show here this recipe for curried dijon chicken.  It's super easy, and really good.

Have I said I love you lately? :D

 

Not that I think that this will minimize the appearance of the original dish, mind you. This will just be one more thing that she adds to her repertoire.

I can also give you some recipes for curry mixes.  At least I can give you the basics and you can mix away to your tastes.
