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.
