{Theme Thursday} Dishes (and Impossible Casserole)

Linking up with Clan Donaldson for Theme Thursday!

Registering for wedding gifts is... 

Well, it can be really exciting, full of anticipation, and ... well, if you're anything like me, overwhelming and challenging. 

So, I knew we were gonna need something to eat off of as a married couple, and Zeke's extensive line of leftover dishes wasn't going to work (even though 'they fit Ramen noodles so well!"), and so the dish hunt began. 

And I found these.

And I liked the whiteness, the classic-ness, and the not-round-not-square-ness.

The price? Well, that was another story. But hey, people were gonna buy these FOR me. Why not splurge a little?

Cut to me, after dropping a bowl on the floor and it shattering, bursting into tears and yelling at my husband who happened to bump into me because now we don't have enough bowls and we can't afford to replace this one! Ah!

All you brilliant folks probably already knew this would happen and are far wiser than splurging on pricey fancy dishes that would all have been broken within two years of marriage, anyway.


The reason for that rant was to show you this.

And tell you that man, I love me some Impossible Casserole. Well, the original recipe was called Impossible Pie, but it's more casserole-y to me.

The Recipe: Impossible Casserole

1 cup of meat (precooked and cut up)
1 cup of veggies, chopped
1 cup of cheese
2 cups of milk
1 cup of Jiffy Baking Mix
4 eggs
Applicable Spices

Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish, layer in the meat, veggies, and cheese. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, eggs, and baking mix together (I use a fork), then add spices. Pour mixture into bowl. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or so, or until knife comes clean.

This recipe is awesome (AWESOME) for leftovers. Which is pretty much all we eat. You can mix and match stuff to make the 1 cup...

Some of our favorite combinations?

Leftover hamburger patty, cut up, with 1/2 cup chopped onion and 1/2 cup green pepper and shredded cheese (I added about 1/4 cup ketchup)

Leftover bacon and diced ham, onion and green pepper, and shredded cheese (and about 1/4 cup maple syrup!)

Too. Good. Too. Easy. Impossible to screw up, and you'll almost always have all the ingredients.

You're welcome. =)


  1. Oh my goodness, that looks delicious! My mind is exploding with the endless possibilities!

  2. Looks great! My practical mother helped steer me clear of the super expensive every day dishes....although they're stoneware and I'm considering replacing the lot with corel so the kids can't break them!

    1. I'm eventually going to have to do the same- I'm thinking of slowly replacing the ones I've (already!) broken...

  3. I wish every bridal registry consultant would tell people the awful truth about expensive everyday dishes. Ugh.
    But that casserole more than makes up for any bad memories. Yum.

  4. That casserole looks delish! And, I totally agree about expensive dishes.

    1. It's really really good! I was a little wary, but it turned out great!

  5. We're going to try that casserole- it looks yummy. And oh, my goodness...so many things I wish I could go back and tell the version of me that was registering for wedding gifts. I guess I'll save those lessons for my children (who will roll their eyes at me, right?).

    1. Haha pretty much! I know I did... who knew my mom is so smart? I certainly didn't think so when I was a little younger...
