Cheesy Chicken Casserole

in All Posts

I hope you are having a nice night!  We are trying to decide what to do tonight…. go out, stay in? Ice cream? Beer? 🙂


This afternoon I snacked on….


Shredded wheat and raisins in skim.


And apricots.


Times two.


And for dinner….. a new casserole!

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
