family lunch date

fam

A few weekends ago I had my family over for lunch. I wanted to cook something warm and hearty since it had been snowing for days. I decided on a meat and potato casserole…You can’t get any more hearty than that! I also made a little something special for my nephew because he can be a picky eater at times. I made Cheesy Potato and Sausage Casserole for the adults and Corndog Muffins for the little guy…which I think the adults enjoyed more than he did!
