"When you can't think of what else to serve, compose a casserole. It's the hostess' best friend and the busy homemaker's helper, because usually the preparations can be finished ahead of time and the final heating done in the oven, without extra attention. So simple to fix, so pretty to serve, so wonderful to taste - that's the casserole. Take a handful of vegetables; take a pinch of seasoning and a dash of herbs; take a cup of this and a pound of that - and you have the makings for that dish of magic."
What could be more fun than a vintage 1960's cookbook?
