I chatted with Mom and Dad last night and it was fun to talk about their plans for Thanksgiving. They are having the event at their house this year (wish that I could be there). Mom and I really like to talk about cooking and our stash of recipes for dishes that we plan to try; we wear out the battery on my cell phone every time! Dad just bought a new Hoover vacuum that he spotted while they were out shopping. Thanksgiving Day he is the "event coordinator"; handling last minute touch-ups (thus, the new sweeper!), moving chairs, alternately soothing Mom's nerves and coaching those in the kitchen (who don't necessarily want to be coached or reminded of the time). They are a great team! Ahh....just their voices can take me back home, again!
Here's another great idea from the cookbook put together by home economics teachers (same book as yesterday's post).
Broccoli Mushroom Supreme
Mrs. Leo W. Thames, Robert E. Lee H.S., Baton Rouge, Louisiana
1/2 C chopped onion
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 stick butter
2 pkg. frozen chopped broccoli
1 C cream of mushroom soup
1 roll garlic cheese
1 C bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
Saute' onion and celery in butter; add broccoli. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add soup, mushrooms, cheese and !/2 C crumbs; season. Pour into greased casserole; sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Yield: 8-10 servings.
I will be at these swaps today:
