Number One: I ate a vegetable the other day.
(Okay, that was a lie.)
The real first announcement is that this week's recipe is for a casserole with French fries on top. 'Nuf said.
The second announcement is that the person eating the casserole is a refined caker gentleman wearing a pair of mint green polyester pants, brilliant white oxford shoes and a matching white belt.
That means Mrs. Hunter, proprietor of the fashion blog, Style Forage, selected Jennifer Goodwin's Lawrence Welk-lovin', Manhattan drinkin', polyester pant wearin' mac caker daddy entry as the winner of the Top 5 Caker Fashions contest.

Thanks to Mrs. Hunter and to everyone who posted their caker fashion comments. They inspired me to bring the polyester back into my life. True, polyester can cause some chaffing in these hot summer months, but hey, corn starch is cheap.
Speaking of corn starch, there ain't none in this casserole. But did I mention French fries? Happy eating.
1 pound hamburger
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 can golden mushroom soup
Frozen French fries
Heave over to 350°. Place uncooked hamburger in bottom on 9 x 9” pan. Mix the two soups together and put over hamburger. Top with a generous layer of French fries. Bake for 1½ hours.
