I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already. This year I went and had lunch at my Grandmother's and then my Dad and I headed out to Beeville to hang out with my sister and Mike. So for the picture above....I recieved an electric knife for my birthday last year and this was my first chance to use it. It works so good lol!
One of my family's traditions is broccoli casserole. It's so freakin tasty lol. Here are the ingredients you'll need:
2 bags of frozen broccoli
1 meduim size box of rice
1 small onion
1 cup of celery
2 cans of cream of mushroom
2 cups of milk
1 lb velveeta
Before you start anything, you must put your tv on the 90's channel. It's always appropriate to jam out while cooking.......
First, pre heat the oven at 350 degree's. Then put 2 tbsp of butter in the bottom of a quart sized pot. Then add the small onion and cup of celery that you've chopped to the melted butter.
Then once you feel the onion and celery are going good, pour 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup and 2 cups (cans to keep the clean up down lol) of milk to the onion and celery.
Once the soup and milk are combined and blended add the frozen broccoli to the soup or you can cook it first and then add. It will cook while it's in the soup but it's up to you if you want to do it that way.
Chop the velveeta into tiny cubes and stir in. You want the velveeta to be completley melted when you add the rice to it.
And while the cheese is melting in the soup mixture, start the rice.
Once the rice is done add it to the soup mixture and when completly blended, pour into a 9 X 13 pan and put into the oven for 30-45 min. When it is bubbling and done looking you can take it out and serve :) Enjoy and happy holidays!
