It's been a while.

Well I've decided to jump back into this blog because I miss it! 

Today is a pretty gloomy day. 
streetlights on during the day gloomy. 

Paired with a frustrating trip to ikea (for the second time) which will require yet another trip tomorrow I wanted something yummy and baked in the oven with cheese. 

Call me old fashioned but first thing that comes to mind is casserole. Some sort of ooey gooey cheese topped mish mash of food. 

I had zero motivation to make a trip to the grocery store so I knew my ingredients were limited to whatever I had in the house. 

Well, tomorrow is grocery day so I was scrounging. Plus Fernando is heading off to band shortly so I also didn't have a ton of time to get it done in time for early dinner. 

What did we end up with? 

Hash brown casserole! 

Yummers. 


We tackled almost half of it. 
Oops! 

The glory of casseroles is that even some of the weirdest ingredients work so well. 

This lovely specimen of casserole aka "hot dish" was a combo of hash browns, creamed corn, butter, salt, pepper, garlic and of course cheese on top. 

I was skeptical of the creamed corn and garlic but I decided to go for it and it was awesome!! 
And gluten free!

So yay for only having to make one instead of a gf version and a normal version! 

Bonus points for now having leftovers for during the week too. 
I think I may be on a casserole kick for a while now. 

What's your favorite casserole?
