  1. Great Job! Another crowd pleaser here at the house of 8! The only thing I will do next time is mix some cheese in with the entire mixture, and some on top. Great make ahead!
  2. This was really easy to make and came out tasting really good as well. I was really skeptical of the croutons, but it turned out fantastic. This dish reheats really well. Also I served it alone, but when my roommate reheated it, she mixed it with some rice. I found it a touch salty, but my roommate said it was great!


<p>September 15, 2007: Here's a photo of me and my two girls before leaving our hotel room to go to an Avett Brothers concert. We're all huge fans of the group. We're also huge fans of each other. It's fun to have adult children. <br /> <br /> <br />--- About me: I'm an artist, and art teacher to kids kindergarten age through 8th grade. My life whirls at a breakneck pace. I teach approximately 800 students, and have 30 different classes each week. It's crazy!!! The rewards, however, are the numerous hugs and good vibes I get from my students. If I didn't have my good-looking husband to stabilize me, I'd surely be sporting a straight-jacket. Oh, and did I mention my yarn obsession? I've made hundreds of crochet items in the past few months, and have a little shop on etsy. Check out my website when you have the time:</p> 8754768"
