Tailgate Thursday: Heartbreak Food

 

There is no time better time than today, on this my traditional Tailgate Thursday post to say that my heart is breaking in two.  One moment I am a loyal, true-blue, teary-eyed, Penn State fan (and JoePa lover) who is feeling hurt, betrayed and confused.  The next, I am a mom of a son and a grandson.  With the only thing worse than child-abuse being covering it up, my motherly broom goes into fifth gear and I want to hurt someone... starting at the top and working my way methodically down.  That being said, for my entire adult life, cooking has been my therapy.  Here my BSD friends is an easy, casserole recipe that takes me back to a kinder, gentler time... my den mother days.  In honor of the victims who needed a motherly hug rather than a visit to the Lasch building, and, those of us fans who just need to eat something warm, comforting and sanity restoring:  Mel's Cheese-y, Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole!

This recipe can be found at Jessedotsmom's foodie blog.

By the time Saturday rolls around, I really hope I/we can all find the strength to embrace a new era.  

Restore the glory,

Mel.
