For many it's the weekend family and friends gather to enjoy the first long weekend of the spring and summer season, the planting of gardens and outdoor time, opening the cabin and sharing meals often with potluck dishes to round out the offering.
It’s a weekend I look forward to although travel times see to much smaller gatherings these past years. Plan to spend my weekend enjoying family time, first barbecues of the season, a county drive and a picnic. Looking forward to our outdoor cookouts has me needing to decide the main course, thinking to ribs, chicken and burgers. These are givens at our house come May Long.

Doesn't sound all that promising for outdoor activities or backyard barbecues. That in mind one recipe I like to have on hand when expecting weekend guests is an old fashioned casserole. Its a great make ahead, add green salad and crusty bread and you’re good to go.
