I'm spending this week in Florida with my mother who just returned home
from the hospital with strict instructions to eat a high fiber diet. I
made the following casserole for dinner last night. It is the recipe that
was being passed around the office last week and has over 5 grams of fiber.
The leftovers are in four small ziplock bags and frozen so that she can
reheat them when there isn't someone here to cook for her.
As a Minnesotan, I really love this south Florida sun!
