Substituting a drained can of peas or mixed vegetables makes this casserole easier to digest and still objectionable to the palate. Frozen veggies help, but kind of negate the name.7:30 AM after probably one of the worst nights of sleep I’ve had in a week. Since last Wednesday, i haven’t had even so much as a sniff of beer. So before anybody starts thinkin that “Whiskey Man“ is the new 3AMD,...dont.
Since i’m cooking for myself, and Kate is still away, I take these “ opportunities“ to make the kinda junk that I grew up on that she won’t eat. In this case,.....Trainer park tuna casserole.
1 can Campbell’s Cream of mushroom soup.
1 can of Tuna in spring water.
1 bag of wide egg noodles.
1 bag of frozen broccoli cuts.
1/2 cup of milk to add a sauce like consistency.
1/2 bag of cheddar cheese.
It all gets put together after the noodles are cooked in a 8x8 baking dish, topped with cheese, and then put in the oven for like 30 minutes..
Then it’s Viking feast time. Except this time the aftermath is strictly the stuff of Old white guy of Russian descent legend.
I find out ( to my discontent) when you eat half a pan of this stuff one night, and come back the next night and finish it off, the reputation that broccoli has for creating intestinal gas is not to be taken lightly. Only this stuff was trapped inside, too far down to get out either way it typically can. So....
Pain like giving birth to an alien out of your stomach ensues,....for about two hours.
So,..not only am I giving up drinking whiskey,...i ain’t never looking at a broccoli ever again.
