Dustin Recipes

My housemate Dustin grew up in Iowa and did not realize until he moved for university that there was such thing as an independent, non-chain restaurant. He was amazed to discover whole streets of Thai, Indian, Lebanese food... and was confused because there was no Applebees. He told me that at first he was slightly appalled, because each independent place is different, and how on earth are you supposed to know which ones are good?! An Applebees is an Applebees, and you always know what you will get.

Tonight for dinner he made:

2 cans mushroom soup
1 bag frozen green beans
1 box stuffing
3 chicken breasts

in the slow cooker.

Last week it was

2 cans spaghetti
half block Velveeta cheese

in the slow cooker.

The week before that it was

2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 box stuffing
half block Velveeta cheese

in the slow cooker.

I am eager to see what Iowa-style recipe he will come up with next.

I guess they don't eat many vegetables is Iowa.

which is odd as they are all about farming

Velveeta cheese, maybe they are all dairy farmers.
