A few of the ladies from my church got together today for a Pot Luck Lunch. We like to do that from time to time. It's nice to just spend time with each other outside of church and get to know each other better. I really enjoy that. It was also one of the girl's birthday, so there was an additional reason for us to celebrate this time together.
I had a really busy morning as I had an appointment to have my hair cut and so I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time and so I just went to my store cupboard and looked to see what I had to hand.
A bit of this and a bit of that and a short while later I had a delicious casserole created, which took barely any time at all to create. It went together simply and quickly.
A pouch of precooked rice, some tinned salmon, frozen broccoli, a tin of condensed soup, a bottle of salad dressing, some cracker crumbs and some grated cheese and we had liftoff! Layered in a dish in an attractive and simple way and then baked.
It went down a real treat with the ladies and is a dish I think I will repeat often, even just for Todd and myself. It really was quite delicious! I love it when my experiments come out that way. Don't you?
