    Julesong's Note:

    From my Family Recipe Box, here's a nostalgic look at an overnight chicken casserole. From the Family Recipe Box, in Grandma's handwriting. Attributed to Luelle Swanson. Note from Julie: I can see many things I'd do differently with this recipe to update it. I'd add garlic, for more flavor, and more onions. Perhaps green onions, as well. Some cayenne, too.
