Mom's Hamburger Chicken Noodle Casserole

"This is a recipe that my mom made frequently when we were growing up. This is "comfort food" at it's best and is also economical and fast to fix. The amounts can be increased to feed a crowd or decreased to serve your family. I like to make it as written so that I have leftovers the next day."

I live in southeastern South Dakota, near the Missouri River. I am managing editor of the weekly newspaper in a small town ten miles from where I live. I also keep busy with my 13 year old son's activities. It's been a challenge to learn to cook in smaller quantities since both of my daughters are grown and on their own. I enjoying cooking, baking, collecting cookbooks, trying new recipes, reading, hunting, fishing and bowling. My favorite cookbooks are church cookbooks. I have a church cookbook that I received from an aunt as a shower gift 25 years ago that has become "well-worn" and is my "go-to" cookbook along with a couple of other cookbooks that I frequently use. The rest of my cookbooks also get used but not as often as my favorites. My kids laugh at me as I read cookbooks like others read novels and always have sticky notes handy to mark pages with recipes that I want to try.
