After The Holidays Casserole



Happy New Year to all!

The holidays are winding down. We have been sitting around enjoying meals, talking and sharing with family and friends. Now we are in the process of getting our homes and lives back to normal.

Some of you cooked ham and/or turkey and have leftovers, so here is a delicious recipe using either one -- or both if you like -- that is easy and cheesy and everyone will really enjoy. It is perfect if accompanied by cranberry sauce and a green salad.

After the Holidays Casserole

Serves 6-8

2 cups cooked ham or turkey, cut up

1, 8-ounce package corkscrew macaroni

2, 10-ounce packages frozen mixed vegetables

1, 10-ounce can condensed tomato soup

1 cup sour cream

2 tablespoons minced onions

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

In separate pans, cook macaroni and vegetables, as their labels direct. Drain. Combine in casserole dish, undiluted tomato soup and rest of ingredients, except cheese. Sprinkle cheese over mixture and bake 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly in 300 degree oven.

With New Year's around the corner, any thoughts as to your New Year's resolutions? In the past, I never have made any -- this year is different. After a lot of soul searching, these are my resolutions:

1. Always thank the Creator for all the blessings.

2. Be true to myself.

3. Live life as an adventure.

4. Enjoy all the moments of my journey.

5. New beginnings (I am ready to date again).

To all my readers: May you take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every 60 seconds you spend upset, is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Love, Shirley
