ARTICHOKE Cheese Melts
Little did I know that most of the things I fix are just some of this and some of that. I use what ever I had onhand
at any given time with almost no measurements. I keep leftover veggies in a countainer in the freezer. After it fills up I make soups, stews and so forth.
This too was a "hmmm gotta can left over" an made for a SUPER BOWL BASH. Now it's a fast and easy dish loved by us all. WIth so many swap outs.
