Pizza Hot Dish

I don’t have a picture of this easy to make recipe due to my husband not being home for dinner. It is too hard to find the camera when you are trying to feed 2 hungry kids. However, it was yummy.

Popeye’s Casserole

Madison, my 5 year old, is a huge Popeye fan.  She knows he gets big and strong from eating spinach, and since this casserole has spinach in it, we call it popeye’s casserole in my house.  This doesn’t fall under one of the easiest recipes to make just because at one point I have 3 different pans going on the stove at one time.  I make sure Bill is home when I making this.
