Chicken Ham Casserole

As much as I love long weekends it sure does throw a monkey wrench into the following day. My errand list was long plus a much needed grocery trip. There was a quick stop to drop off a resume for a secretarial position. Which by the way I'm hoping I don't get. It ended up in the office of a coal company. My hand had black smudges on it just from holding a pen. *ick* Dogs needed bathed and the whole house was crying for the vacuum. Thank God for casseroles. I assembled dinner in the early afternoon and had the kitchen cleaned up before the girls returned home from school.
Dinner was delish! I'm a fan of chicken and ham mixtures to begin with so I knew I would like tonight's meal. There is the matter of my finicky family who of lately have been down right rude with their comments. This recipe however was a winner. Whew! They are lucky for I was about to trade them in for a family with some taste. Just kidding.
Recipe found in Quick Cooking 2004.
1 package (6 oz) long grain and wild rice mix
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup cubed fully cooked ham
1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Colby cheese
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 ⁰F. Cook rice mix according to package directions. Transfer to a greased 2 quart baking dish. Top with chicken and ham. In a bowl, combine the soup, milk, Colby cheese and pepper; pour over chicken mixture. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Bake, uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.

Yum, this sounds good! I'm sensing that Alex doesn't like any kind of "mixed" food. Does that make sense? So far, the few casseroles I've made he's not liked at all. He didn't like Taco Soup either. ::sigh:: What to do?!
He likes plain. Meat and potatoes. With no seasoning. Yuck, I just can't do it.
I'm trying this one!

Abby doesn't care for mixed foods either. She picked this casserole apart. Eating the ham first, then the chicken and finally the rice. It's funny how she has to separate her food before eating it.
