All of our days are busy down on the dairy farm, but there's all those additional to do lists in December. The lists I'm referring to are the shopping, the baking, the decorating and all the extra activities like practice for the church Christmas cantata or the school play. Midwest Dairy's Cheeseburger Macaroni Casserole fits into a busy schedule perfectly!
