Sometimes, just out of the blue, my son will ask for Easy Frito Casserole. It is one of the easiest dishes to make so I usually agree to make it. If you are having a party it is fun to get everyone their own bag of Fritos and let them put the casserole in the bag. Just slice a small cut in the top of the bag and that way you don’t even need to dirty any dishes! Isn’t that a great idea? What are some of your family’s favorite meals that they ask for?
Food is such an import part of our lives. It is a great way to get family back together when older children leave home. I have found that if you feed them, they are usually willing to make an effort to come home. I feel that it is important to keep those family ties once in awhile. Otherwise, we get too busy in life and miss out on the most important things. So set a goal today to have either an old friend over for lunch or dinner, or some of your family. This is a fast and easy way to get dinner on the table, and that way you will have time for fun and games.
