Ham and Tater Tot Casserole
It's pretty awesome when dinner is in one dish! With this Ham and Tater Tot Casserole, you've got your protein, your veggies and your starch and it's so easy to put together. SCORE!
My husband LOVED it! I can't speak for the kids as there aren't any living with us at the moment, but that has changed as my husband and I have recently packed up and moved out to Arizona where we've rejoined our 17 year old son who's been living with his best friend's family. We were also fortunate to visit with our daughters along the way. This is one very happy momma! It's been such a long two months.

I know this is a comfort meal that I'll be making when all of the kids are at home. It's hearty, and quite delicious. I also know that odds are that there won't be hardly any left over when I do, too!

It's been fun and has been quite challenging making dinner for just me and Mr. 365. As you can tell from the photos, I continued cooking for more than just two people after the kids left. For the life of me, I just couldn't wrap my head around the fact that I had to scale down the meal and cut the ingredients in half. So, we ended up eating A LOT of leftovers! Besides, it's probably a good thing I didn't, because I'm now feeding more than just us anyway and that's the way I prefer it. This would be a great way to use any leftovers from a big Thanksgiving ham also!
