Not wanting the long holiday weekend of fun to end, Ben and I decided to have my parents over for the sixth and final casserole from the Eating Well hotdish series. We decorated the house that afternoon, so it really felt like a worthy evening for the grand finale hotdish! We sat around the tree while it baked.
We also enjoyed the toasty fire.
I'm sad that Thanksgiving is over and gone, but now we get to look forward to CHRISTMAS! Yay!
The Seafood Chowder Casserole looked and smelled delicious.
Just like the picture!
It had cod, shrimp, crab, potatoes, leeks and celery along with gruyère cheese.
Mmm. Mom continued the tradition of providing a crisp and refreshing salad to go along with the hotdish.
Since it was the grand finale, I also made dessert. Apple crisp!
So, the Eating Well hotdish extravaganza was definitely a success. All of them turned out AWESOME. We seriously loved them all and it is hard to pick a favorite. Every time we had one, someone (or everyone) would say "This one is DEFINITELY my favorite." So I'm not sure if they just kept getting progressively more delicious, or if it just so happened that whatever one was in our mouths at the time was the favorite.
Last night Dad suggested that we start over and make them all again!! I'm seriously considering it. YUM, YUM, YUM!
Here is the link to the final recipe!
