When I think of casseroles, I immediately reflect on the annual Christmas party when co-worker X with questionable hygiene and practices brings in a dish in one pan that is a cornucopia of things.

So today, I followed in Co-work X's track, I made a casserole. It is the Hamburger Alfredo and Broccoli Casserole.

It's a hearty meal, high on calories and low on carbs. It's tasty to say the least.

Scattered, Smothered and Covered

says the Waffle House waitress.

Waffle House is a fine greasy spoon. I absolutely adore their menu selections but it's not exactly heart healthy. So, it's just a treat.

So, I've attempted a home similarity of the sorts... well the hash brown portion.

Above are two pieces of Circle B Brand of Polish Sausages and Cheesy Hash browns (recipe found on the Linda Sue site).

The Circle B sausages are the best. I should have eaten only one because two was too much. The Cheesy Hash brown (made with cauliflower of course) were ok. I guess I wasn't very hungry this morning. I will try them again though.

That's all for now. It's so hot and I haven't cooked very much. I guess the fall treats will be more exciting.

Oven Top Pizza

so easy and so good.

I rarely measure anything unless I am following someones recipe. This consists of a bit of ground beef, a bit of Jimmy Dean sausage, a couple of teaspoons of spaghetti sauce with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. I browned the beef and sausage and added a hint of dry Italian seasoning. After the meat browned, I added the Prego sauce and allowed it to simmer a bit.

Thereafter, I added the mozzarella cheese and topped with Parmesan for greatness.

I actually had this sometime last week but I couldn't get the pics from the phone to the email.

I will get a new cam in August or September...I think.

Big Dam Bridge...

...RiverWalk Little Rock.

It seems since I have been away from LR, they have come up with this new RiverWalk Project. Now, I have been "home" each year, but I am just finding out about this little number. Whew...last night was the first night that I tackled this little walk. The incline (5%) on both ends is no joke to a first timer. My mom comes here regularly (why she didn't tell me about it, I don't know) so it wasn't an issue for her. It's a peaceful walk with a mix of people. It seems safe too. My only issue is a few nutcases left their dog's poo on the path which is concrete. There are bags on either end so leaving dog poo in the middle of the path is digusting, trifling and rude.

Last night we only did one spin, but we will do two or three from now on... well that's if the bugs don't get on my nerves.
