Welcome!

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!

Taco Lasagne

One thing I love about making casseroles is that IT Guy will take leftovers in his lunch. He's always been so good about leftovers. I think he got that from his dad. And if the casseroles have any kind of Mexican flair to them..then he's in heaven. This was really good. So easy to make and you can switch up what you add to it. If you don't need a huge pan full, split it up between two smaller ones and freeze one for later...or give it away to a friend!
