Vegetable and bean casserole

Because I had lots of vegetables and beans and was not feeling my best with my hip pain, I made a very simple casserole for Saturday night dinner. I guess it must have been really good because when Bella and daddy was waiting for test results and Children’s hospital she started talking about it.
According to James she was talking about how good it was and was wondering what I would cook that night and perhaps I would make it again. Maybe it was just that good or maybe she was just feeling better and hungry, who knows hum.
