Casseroles are a staple around the SFFS house. Not only do we eat them fresh from the oven, but IT Guy takes the leftovers to work in his lunch, so this is perfect for us. Not only does it serve a dual purpose, but it's yummy to boot! And so easy! If you don't need a big pan of this, remember you can always split up the mixture into two pans and freeze one for later! I'm having to learn to do that more and more for since I cook for only two people most of the time. But this is just a great dish for a family meal!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
