One-Step Ham Casserole

Dump, bake and serve this One-Step Ham Casserole within one hour

Who doesn't like dinner which you basically dump into a large oven dish, bake and it turns out delicious as well ..?

I am definitely a huge fan of recipes like this One-Step Ham Casserole, especially after spending the afternoon shopping with my son!

Actually, we I had loads of fun... we had to get some more paint and timber for even more stuff for his new room and I just love spending someone else's money!   Yes, bad, bad mother, I know, but he wants the room modified, therefore I think it's just right that he pays for it.

So far, I gave my hubby some plans for a desk to build and paint, which is done, I gave his desk chair a make-over, am halfway with a new headboard {but now I am stuck on a paint design, ugh}, must still make a key holder which can be put against the wall {he is forever misplacing his keys}, two more wall cubes to be build and painted {to match my old store-bought cube} ... and there is even more just to finish the bedroom part - thereafter, we will take on the tiny bathroom.

Anyway, we got home late afternoon, and I did not have a lot of time preparing a filling and delicious meal.  But then I remembered printing a recipe from BHG the other day and Voila!  .. after adapting the recipe a little - dinner was ready in no time at all and best of all, everyone gave it a nod of approval.
