Over the past year, we had started to become the family who eats meals in the living room. Not really sure how this became the norm for us, but it had. I didn't like it, but since it was the only way that Cooper, the baby, could really be part of our meals, it's what happened. Meal times were starting to get a little chaotic, too much up and down, especially by Coop since he was sitting in a little desk that didn't have a seat belt. What used to be talking about our days and having family conversation, had turned into watching TV. And I can't even remember the last time that I got to eat an entire meal without having to get up to put Cooper back in his seat or without having his chubby little hands being crammed into my plate!
Tonight's dinner was one of the best our family has had in a very long time! And not just the food (although it was amazing, but more on that later). Our new table has two benches and two chairs. I also bought a little booster seat that straps to one of the chairs for Cooper! He was able to get right up to the table with the rest of us! We were all able to talk and enjoy our food without getting up and there was no TV on! Bliss!
Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
Layer the first 3 ingredients in a casserole dish. Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and then pour over the meat and cheese. Top with the mixture of Panko and spices.
Then you bake in a 350 oven until the top browns and the casserole is bubbly!
That's it! So easy! I served mine with Corn-On-The-Cob and Sourdough French Bread. And everyone in my family cleared their plates!
Let me know if you try it and how your family liked it! Til next time...
