Happy Semi-Vegan Saturday and Sunday!

Well, I've been busy offline falling backwards (not forwards like Casey) into the bay today (fully clothed) and pondering a sweet deal sans functional toilet. Currently watching The Stranger for the umpteenth time...

Noodle Casserole by ~vickangaroo

Brought to you by Wagga: this intriguing recipe that may help Casey gain a few pounds!

Semi-vegan Veggie Casserole

1 lb. fresh white mushrooms.
2 tablespoons butter.
1 frozen green peas, thawed.
1 can Cream of Celery soup.
3/4 cup milk.
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
Salt & pepper to taste.
1/2 cup crushed potato chips.

Wash & slice mushrooms. Saute in butter until tender.
Stir in peas & continue to cook for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile blend remaining ingredients in well-greased baking dish (except for potato chips), then combine mushrooms & peas. Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs. Bake 30 minutes @ 350 degrees.

Serves 4-6

Vegan Variation:
Substitute olive oil for butter, build a roux with 1 1/2 tablespoons of
cornstarch or
flour whilst sauteeing the mushies to build body, quench with 3/4 cup of
(or white wine!), and substitute tofu for cheese.

Variation kc
Use Vegan Variation, pour 1/2 of combined mixture in baking dish. Add layer of shrimp, beef , chicken, pork, crab legs or all of the above.. Cover with remaining mixture. Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs. Bake in eight ovens until the power is turned off.

Salt Lake City Variation:
Make Standard Variation, pour 1/2 of combined mixture in baking dish. Add layer of 2759 pieces of Koi ( A type of fish). Cover with remaining
Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs.
Bake at room temperature until the housing market recovers.

This Friday Staff lunch was (as always) well received.
It tastes good or you will be fired!
Peas with Pearl Onions are a good alternative.
The dish turned out a little watery with a slightly gray color. A little flour or cornstarch during the sautee would be good, & be careful not to brown the mushrooms much. I did. I somewhat overdid the ground black pepper - hurt the color, I should try white pepper & a schosh of sugar. Next time I will experiment with olives, onions & peppers, and, of course, canned Tuna or Salmon.
