“I'm posting this recipe because I love it so much! When I'm short on time, energy or ideas (or all 3) this recipe is my ace up my sleeve. I actually got it several years ago by eavesdropping in line at some mega mart on a distinguish established southern belle advising a young newlywed southern belle. But, don't worry, she was pleased to know I, too, was taking notes. I tweaked her recipe to my liking; I love onions and cheese, and prefer the cream of mushroom. Also, I prefer to leave out the celery, but my family likes it in.”
