Myra’s Super Supper #SundaySupper

Mother’s Day is coming soon, and while I don’t expect much, I ask for the same thing each year–to be taken out for a meal. Last year, I got breakfast. This year, I don’t know what Jay and the bambino have planned, but as long as it doesn’t involve me cooking my own meal at some point, I’m happy. I do wish I could see my mom for Mother’s Day, but instead, I’ll celebrate her by making her favorite dish–Super Supper.

Super Supper

Super Supper is a dish that my uncle found the recipe for in a newspaper back in the late 60’s, and asked my grandma Myra to make it. She did, and it apparently went over well enough with him, my mom and the rest of their siblings that it stayed in rotation. My mom also made it, and as a toddler, I scarfed it up…Until one day when I watched my mom make it, and saw her throw green peppers into the dish. After that, I refused to eat it, and I can’t really remember ever having it as a child.

Super Supper

Funny how times and tastes change, eh? But I can totally see the bambino reacting the same way–Green peppers?! Yuck!

Super Supper

It’s not the most appealing-looking dish, but it is tasty. And though it’s April and Spring should be in full swing, just last week we got a blast of snow. It’s been grey, dull, and rainy all week. So a comfort-food casserole is nice on a cloudy, cool day.
