Happy Thanksgiving!


Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! My family will gather at my sister's house at noon, each relative bringing along a dish of something yummy. I am glad that she has the festivities because her husband cooks a mean turkey! I'll be hosting the family Christmas so my turn's a'comin'. My contributions will be a pumpkin pie (with that delicious new French Vanilla Cool Whip), a lemon cake with cream cheese frosting, and the old standby Broccoli Rice casserole. (This is always her personal request!) Here's the recipe: In a small glass bowl saute 1/4 of an onion--chopped--in 1/4 cup margarine in the microwave. Cook a bag of Success Rice according to package directions. In a large ovensafe casserole dish, cook 24 oz. frozen broccoli in the microwave, again according to pkg. directions. Drain excess water from broccoli, then add the onion, rice, 1 can cream of celery soup and 1 small jar Cheez Whiz. Stir, then bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Yummy! Hope everyone has a lovely family day with lots of blessings to count.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family-May I skip over dinner and just go right to the lemon pound cake and cream cheese frosting???One of my absolute favs-I like the "Barefoot Contessa" recipe the best. Yum

Happy Thanksgiving! I also am in charge of the pumpkin pie. But it is whipped cream from real cream for my husbands family! Have a great holiday!

Add chicken to your Broccoli-Rice dish and that's one of my favorite casseroles!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Sounds like a yummy casserole. Have you ever added chicken or something to it? Just wondering if it would make a good one-dish meal.

Love the corn picture.
