Harvest is well underway around here. That means the guys don't always come home for lunch, but they still have to eat. Sometimes they do have to settle for a good ole ham sandwich and chips. They don't care. Brad always says, "If it's brought to the field, I'm not going to complain."
My favorite dish to make and take to the fields is Hungry Jack Casserole. It's easy to make, yummy, and fills up those hard working stomachs! I also love taking casseroles to the field because they stay warm, even if the field is 25 minutes away! The guys don't always stop to eat lunch. Sometimes they prefer just a sandwich, but most of the time they stop because it could be the only time that Brad gets to see the girls during the day. Sometimes they are already in bed when he gets home.
Bread, hamburger, cheese, baked beans and BBQ sauce. What's not to love?
