Chicken Noodle Soup Casserole … and my first blog post

Hello all! I have decided to jump on the blog band wagon approximately 6 years late. But whatevs. Tonight the Bergs and Baby Bergs had Chicken Noodle Soup Casserole for dinner. Our household has been plagued with stomach bugs, ear infections and colds the entire month of January. This casserole sounded like it would hit our sickly spot! DSCN0664 The cast of character. Minus a few. All you need is some typical chicken noodle soup ingredients, plus sour cream and two cans of “cream of” soup. I did cream of chicken and cream of chicken with mushrooms, but whatever you like. Next time I will probably do it with a cream of broccoli since Baby Berg #1 kept asking if the green stuff was broccoli. And of course I lied. Yes, baby, it’s broccoli. Overall the casserole was a hit, Baby Berg #2 devoured it, but she is my good eater, so that doesn’t really say much. Baby Berg #1 at most of a bowl, which is somewhat successful. I think I might have liked it…   DSCN0701
