Sometimes when our kids are having a hard time in life, we tend to want to make everything better. I forget that they too, need to experience different emotions in life. It truly is hard to watch sometimes, and we do want to make things perfect for them. I guess we just want them to be happy.

My grandson told his mom, “I can’t eat that mom, the cheese is too rich”.  I was thinking really, do you even know what rich is?  So when I made it again, I just did half Swiss and half Mozzarella; that way it wasn’t as strong tasting.  However my hubby loves Swiss so he would eat it with all Swiss.

That is one nice thing about this, you can do what you want.  Start to finish, you can have this on the table in about 45 minutes.  I can say that every person that has tried this at my house, besides my grandson, has enjoyed this casserole and it has been slicked it up every time I have made it.
