Although the first dáy of spring hás come ánd gone, it’s been chilly ánd blustery here in Kánsás, so I thought I’d sháre this wárm ánd delicious cásserole for everyone thát’s still eágerly áwáiting spring before it’s hot ánd sweltering ánd nobody wánts to báke á cásserole. This is pure comfort food ánd perfect to wárm the soul on á chilly dáy.  It’s very quick ánd simple to máke, which is good if you háve á báby thát hás decided thát if you áren’t holding him or pláying with him or táking him on á stroller ride, he isn’t háppy, becáuse you won’t háve to listen to him screám for very long before dinner is in the oven. ;)
