Hey there, Hi there, Hello there ladies! Today we have an extra special treat—a guest blogger! A shout out to J-lo for providing a family favorite. On Monday I was listening to Lucky Bitch Radio, a podcast brought to us by a single, sober, unemployed, nearly homeless, drag queen in

1 pound ground beef (you could certainly use chicken)
1 Tbsp minced onion (or chop up some fresh)
1 can french cut green beans (you could certainly use fresh)
1 can cream of celery soup (but use any cream of ___ you have)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (use any cheese, use more or less)

The great debate with this casserole (between Scott and I) is where the cheese goes. He likes it on top—I like it mixed in. Tonight we tried a compromise—half in, half on top.
This dish reheats easily, although that usually ruins the tater tots. I recommend dishing up your leftovers and putting a few new (frozen) tater tots on top for when you reheat it.
