I made my first casserole in the midwest last night.
While it won't be winning any beauty contests (let's face it, casseroles have a great personality), it made our insides happy. How can you go wrong with tuna, noodles and cheese? You can't, especially when they marry butter, cream and creole seasoning.
When I was growing up, a common word used in our household was "noodles," but it didn't mean what you think it meant.
It was our nickname for naked.
