OK, I can do this. How hard can this be? . I took several deep breaths, trying to channel my inner Rachel Ray. Bill was supposed to come by around six, I glanced at the clock on the wall. Damn! It was almost two. I only had four hours to get dinner on the table.
I re-read the email from my mother.
Even you can make this. Just mix everything in a baking dish. You can get a disposable one at the market. If you make a mistake, you can just throw the whole thing away.
Here is the recipe.
2 cans cream of celery soup
1 large can of tuna
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1 pkg of instant rice
1 bag of cheese
Bake it at 350 for an hour.
I carefully combined all the ingredients. I even made a happy face out of carrot cubes on top to make it look special.
I put the pan into the oven and sat down in a chair to watch it bake. As I stared intently into that little window, I wondered how do you make salad and do I have time?
