#9 Turkey Noodle Casserole

My daughter is into contracts lately, she made me sign on today. It read, "For every minute I am late (to theater) I will be paid $1. Time arrived______ Money earned______
I got her there on time. The theater has a saying, "If you are early, you're on time. If you're on time, you're late. And if you're late, you're in trouble." No trouble for me or my pocketbook. For the record, she has never been late but she was concerned today as I had three errands to run on the way and she was certain she was going to be late. She is very conscientious of these things.

The boy proved himself useful today as he made a repair to the toilet. Handy one that 13 year old.

Turkey Noodle Casserole, at first glance made me think of Tuna Noodle Casserole which I despised as a kid because of the peas. So I was a bit leery to dive in. I should not have feared. Not pictured is the cheese, gruyere. I am going to be a cheese aficionado by the end of the year. As we are nine recipes in and we have already used six difference cheeses if memory serves me correctly.  
 The new skill for today, for both of us, was making bread crumbs. We were standing in the GF aisle at the store and we were debating about the bread crumbs, make our own out of the extra baguette in the freezer or buy some there at the store. DD says, "Let's make our own and save money." I love that girl! I had never done it before but I think I have watched it on a cooking show at some time in my life. We placed the baguette in the oven and crisped it up, then threw it into the food processor. Easy!
 The melted cheese and the crispy bread crumbs gave this dish a nice golden look.
It was FANTASTIC! My favorite dish thus far. Seriously, so good.

And as always we had leftovers. These ones went to our Americorp member helping at the garden. He is a college student and also gluten free, so I thought he might like it! He loved it. In his words, "A total winner." "Heavenly!" "THANK YOU!!!"
He may just get other leftovers as he was so appreciative.

It was NOT a winner in my book. It had mushrooms and I despise them as well. When I was first cutting the cheese it reminded me of my grandma's dog but the cheese was actually good. -DD
