I love, love, love the site Southern Plate. She has all kinds of great Southern recipes, and her posts are absolutely hilarious. You can really hear her “Southerness” coming through. She never apologizes for the amount of butter, sugar, and cream that are in her recipes.

Today she posted a casserole chart that she developed. Super cool. You just pick out the ingredients you have (using categories for Starch, Sauce, Cheese, Meat, Veggies, Topping, and Seasonings), follow the basic instructions, and Voila! A Casserole. Perfect for crisp fall evenings after you’ve spent 2 hours mowing that plethora of leaves off the lawn. Yay for food that warms your belly!
