Friends did come a calling this week! And this is what they crave.
Only way I know how to thank them is to feed them.
They've been friends for years and when the going gets tough, they rally round IMMEDIATELY....I try to do the same.
Course more often than not we're laughin our way thru life.
These guys don't miss a beat, that's all I gotta say.
Thank you for being the kind of friends you are...great ones.
Okay okay maybe its not such a rebellious or innovative version of this casserole,
but surely its brave given how I've upped the ante on caloric intake.
Yes indeedy I have. Hold onto your cellulite and get out your spanks,
you'll need them after eating this.
Once Upon a Plate and I are were having the same meal the same night,
unplanned, ha go figure. I'm just a little slow to post. Cheers to great minds.
2 bags of extra wide egg noodles
One family size can Cream of Mushroom Soup
One family size can Cream of Chicken Soup
One pint heavy whipping cream
One pint sour cream
3 cans of tuna [drained]
3 cans of mushrooms [drained]
Kraft Parmesan Cheese (don't cringe, this is old school tuna casserole)
You can add the real stuff when you plate up.
I swear its the only dish I use canned soups... I PROMISE!
Open all cans.
Boil noodles, drain and rinse.
In the HUGE baking dish you are going to use,
mix all soup, sour cream, some milk, not much,
heavy cream as needed. (you probably won't use it all, or maybe you will, I did)
Add tuna, and mushrooms.
I know I said two bags of noodles, add as much as you can.
I end up using 3/4 of what I boiled, and save the rest for soup.
Top the casserole off with paprika, cheese, salt pepper, and parsley.
Take a stick of butter and cut, scrape or however you want to break it into pieces
And evenly distribute them over the top.
Bake at 375 for what maybe 45 minutes? Until it starts to bubble.
If you don't have a nice crusty top....flip the broiler on for a few.
A few more pics of my peeps...why not~!
Ha yes this photographer takes "snapshots"...
I like happy beginnings~
Have a wonderful weekend~~~ Hannah and I are headed up town, I gotta feeling
there's going to be a lil bowling happenin today. Right on.
One Love. One Peace. Always and all ways~
