I was trying to figure out what to make for supper earlier this week and coming up with nothing, so I started going through one of my recipe boxes to see if anything sounded good. I came across a recipe I wrote done in either the late 1970s or early 1980s. My memory is shot, but I *think* it originally came from Lora.
St. Paul's Casserole
- 1 lb. sausage, browned and drained
- 4 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup raw rice (NOT instant)
- 2 packages chicken noodle soup mix
- 1 cup green pepper, diced
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1 cup celery, diced
- 1 4oz. can mushrooms, drained
This is super simple and super good. Chuck said, "I remember this; we haven't had it in decades. It's a keeper for sure!"
So, little ones, next time you're stuck for an idea for dinner, mine through your recipe box...you might be pleasantly surprised by the gems you find in there!
