I'm going with some variation of that. While I was writing it up I had an opportunity to use a line about pain in the article, so it will work well. I couldn't find a contact to get permission to reprint the cartoon, so we can't use that. :-( Probably would have had to pay for it anyway....
Not had creamed peas either. And have not come across miracle whip...
Beans in mushroom soup sounds interesting. I'll try that sometime.
I had bacon and new potatoes for tea today and am just going to grab a bite to eat now, while I watch a bit of tv. I'm going to have Boursin (not sure if you have these in the US so - a cream cheese with garlic and other herbs) and St Agur (a French blue cheese) on cream crackers.
Oh my gosh!!! It is so interesting when people from other countries say they have never heard of something I think is common.
Altho, not everything I mentioned is common in the USA - just in my mother's home when we were growing up.
This is my suggestion: Look up Campbell's Green bean casserole on the internet. Try that recipe first!!!!!
*Creamed anything is a cooked and drained vegetable that is placed back on the heat with added cream and butter until warm. A variation in mom's house was either milk, half and half or cream mixed with flour to thicken, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, and butter and warmed on the stove until thick.
The latter version was frequently used as a gravy for potatoes. I started using cream of mushroom soup.
The lettuce thing is something most people wouyld say, "eew", but I grew up eating it and I still like it on potatoes served with pork chops!!!
