They say your taste buds change every 7 years. I don’t know how true that is but John and I used to hate mushrooms but now we love them. Every once in a while a good casserole on Sundays is just what you need. My family loved this Chicken, Mushroom, Broccoli, and Rice Casserole – a home cooked meal that is a little of everything.
