Chickens Are in The Garden Again Casserole

Kathie Carr


Mom sent this recipe (that had been clipped from a newspaper) to me when I lived in California. Along with it there was a note that read, "Memories of our Indiana Farm".

That sure made me smile. Years earlier I had been the little girl who gathered eggs even when the rooster chased her back to the house. :)

And, to my surprise, this is a good and easy casserole, too.

Mom and Dad both had a good sense of humor and memories like this one are so precious.
