Ok, I know it’s May. Time for lighter food. But the other day in Seattle it looked like November so I made this tummy warming comforting casserole. I was going to wait and share it later on in the fall when the rains start and the temperatures drop. That is, until I took to Facebook asking if people would like me to wait or share it now. Every person that responded said they wanted it now. So here you go. A scrumptious, stick to your ribs andouille sausage and rainbow chard tater tot casserole fit for a fall day but just as good on a spring one.
I know I can’t be the only person who craves certain things on hot days and other things on cold days. When the sun is shining and temperatures are rising I want something light. Something like a salad. Or grilled shrimp tacos. Or guacamole.
And a Corona. Always a Corona.
When it is cold it’s a different story. I want mashed potatoes. I want gravy. I want fried chicken and green beans. That is why spring is a difficult time for me. Take Monday for instance, it was so dark I had to turn on the light at 1:30 in the afternoon. Then it started raining sideways. Then by 6:00 the sky was blue and the sun was out. But by then it was too late, I had been trying to get warm and cozy all day and this tummy warming dinner was already in the oven.
Not that I regret it though. I mean this casserole is good. Stick to your ribs good. And there are tater tots on top. Really, it can’t get much better.
