My older sister was the Queen of Casseroles. At one time, I bet she could have made a different casserole for everyday of the week for a month. I on the other hand, was the Queen of the Crock-pot (and blazers) in my family. Half the time I just threw ingredients into the crock-pot, turned it on low, and went to work. My kids never liked casseroles, so I’m sure if I asked them what their favorite casserole was, they probably couldn’t answer. They would always moan and groan because they had to eat another “crock-pot” meal and I would give them the same answer Aggie gave me, “then go hungry.”
Always Peanut Butter
I was just kidding, I didn’t make my kids go hungry and my mom didn’t make me go hungry either. I did the same thing that she did and what I’m sure so many moms still do. I know my daughter does it too. Mom’s best friend, peanut butter! I was fortunate that when my kids were young, they didn’t have any food allergies. If my kids didn’t like what we were having for dinner, they could always have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
