Dinner in a Dish. 11/26/18

When John and I were married we received this cookbook as a gift –

Betty Crocker’s Dinner in a Dish

As far as I can tell I have made two dishes from it in the last 46 years, Tuna with Calico Corn Muffins and Wild Rice-Chicken Casserole. Yesterday John made the casserole with the last of our turkey and all we need to do is heat a piece up for dinner.

Wild rice and turkey casserole

I am including a picture of the recipe which looks like it has gone through the wars. We only made 1/3 of the original recipe because the original recipe is a “crowd pleaser.”

Wild Rice-Chicken Casserole recipe

I have updated the recipe somewhat. We use a box of  Near East’s Wild Rice and Long Grain Rice so it is not 100% wild rice. We also use fresh mushrooms, not canned and omit the green bell pepper. I usually serve it with a spicy peri peri sauce because it is kind of rich and bland. Today I make a vinegary cole slaw to go with it.

Last of the Thanksgiving turkey

Tomorrow, Italian sausages with peppers and onions! I am finished with Thanksgiving!!!
