A perfect weather day...

No heat, no humidity, about 72 degrees. Even the A/C at work was way too cold for me. The cold at work got me thinking of soups and casseroles and stews.

So even though it is a bit early for a comfort food kind of meal. Tonight I made up an easy chicken and bisquit casserole that is a long standing family favorite. Oh, it may not be fall yet but this meal did my heart good. Don't get me wrong, I love all of the wonderful light summer dishes I make but I think I am reaching my limit and needed an old fashioned meal to warm the tummies of my family. Surely they must have been a bit chilly today too.

1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
