Kids in the Kitchen - Link up #41 - Happy Thanksgiving

Each week I join forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady
to bring you this Kids in the Kitchen family recipe link up - We are all about encouraging
families to cook and eat together. Real food, verses the fake processed stuff is always best.
We believe that food is healthier and families happier when they get in the habit of spending time in the kitchen together. 

We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool - teaching life skills and healthy habits 
to last a lifetime. The kids plan a food budget, meals, study nutrition and much more. 

Leftover Turkey Casserole: 

Get your little kitchen helpers to chop some onion and break up turkey into bites -
 then heat in butter: 

While that warms up and browns just a bit on low in the skillet - get your hired help 
to add a can of organic "Cream of Chicken" (or Mushroom) to another skillet
Slowly stir in a 1/2 cup of natural Chicken Broth (or Milk if you don't have broth left over)
sprinkle in a cup (or two) of shredded cheddar cheese to make a yummy cheese sauce. 

In the meantime - cook up a pot of your favorite kind of noodles 
whole grain are the healthiest choice - if you are into that kind of thing (just kidding Carrie) 

Mix your turkey bites and cheese sauce into the cooked/drained noodles 

Sprinkle on some Durkey onions or crushed crackers dabbed with butter and bake 
at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes - or just until browned 

They'll eat it up! It's easy to switch out with chicken, or even a can of tuna too. 
You can add mushrooms or broccoli if you'd like. 
I served it with leftover homemade yeast rolls and sliced tomato.
