On Casseroles

Due to budgetary and talent restrictions, my new-bride cooking is extremely casserole based; if I have chicken, beef, noodles, some form of soup, and a variety of cheeses at hand with no vegetables in the recipie, I'm good to go. We've gotten as many as six meals out of one 'role. I can also do an extremely mild lasagna, which is basically a casserole in layers.

Casseroles are a form of trust. What's really in here? Did you shave your pits today? Is the yard looking suspiciously thin? Steak, you can check. Ditto fish. It's an excellent form of newlywed food.

"Casseroles are a form of trust. What’s really in here?"

I guess then that casserole is the perfect meal for a marriage :-)

Alton Brown had some great http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/show_ea/episode/0,,FOOD_9956_21302,00.html" rel="nofollow">casserole recipes on one episode, and they involved things like ramen noodles and leftover chinese takeout.

You and I should get together and write a new bride cookbook! You can write the section on casseroles, and I'll write about the 'two-pot-max' meals I've become so adept at creating (because I am lazy and don't like doing all the dishes)!

There must also be a chapter on 'ways to make stuff when you don't have the tools you're supposed to use.' I used to cook breakfast on a foldable camping-equipment pan, and I make toast without a toaster because I don't have the counter space for one.
