Macaroni Cheese Casserole

maccheese copy

Casserole comes to my rescue at the time I have no clue about what to cook. It is especially for my son who is a picky eater. According to Wikipedia, a casserole is a word from the French, meaning "saucepan” which is a large, deep pot or dish used both in the oven and as a serving dish. In America, many family serve casserole during many festive celebrations. There are many kinds of casserole; green beans and cream of chicken casserole, broccoli and tuna casserole, lasagna and of course, macaroni cheese casserole.

Even though I don't fancy casserole as much as any Indonesian dishes, I love making casserole because my husband and son like it. For my picky eater's son, casserole is a perfect dish as he will swallow everything in it, the meat, the cheese and the vegetables. It is also convenient to make casserole since it will not smell my kitchen though I don't mind the smell...:)

Such dish is really convenience, when time is limited. You can just throw about anything in one pot, violĂ  you have a meal! Good that Nathan like cheese, he needs his calcium to grow stronger!
Cheers,

I must to say the cheese drives me crazy, I approach every time for eat cheese and I add in my recipes all the time. I read some days ago the cheese have many properties and vitamin. The most important thing is the potassium and calcium the cheese contain. I am sure that When i buying my house through costa rica homes for sale i will prepare a dinner for all my friends and I will add many cheese. That will be wonderful.
