Countdown to Thanksgiving.....Broccoli Casserole

Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!  I hope you all have made plans on "who is hosting the holiday".....our family plans way in advance, seems like we kind of all want to host the holiday. I prepared the meal the last 2 years, now it's my sister's turn.

 When I was a little girl, my Mother would always host Thanksgiving.  She did a wonderful job cooking and preparing for the feast, and for like 17 people! Her meal was delicious, her desserts even better, and her table was set all in her very best china, best linens, and best crystal.  We always had a wonderful day, and Mom made it that way, and she really did it all herself.  Sure my sister and I would help a little, but Mom cooked and baked everything, and not just 2 pies, but like 8, and from scratch!!

I do remember helping my Mom set the table the night before, but I never helped cook the meal.  I always enjoyed helping my Mom with "domestic duties", I enjoyed being in the kitchen with her, watching her cook, bake, and even help.  Mom was a great teacher to me in the kitchen, and I did learn it all from her, and I am very proud to say, and I always had samples, just to see if the food was good enough to eat!  HA!

Here's a recipe that my Mom would make often when we were kids, but never for Thanksgiving.  Fresh vegetables were always on her menu.  It's a Broccoli Casserole tt's delicious and easy, and I think would go perfect with a Thanksgiving dinner.  Try delicious and EASY!

Broccoli Casserole

1 bag 16 oz frozen Broccoli florets
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 pkg 16 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Defrost the frozen broccoli.  In a bowl combine the thawed broccoli, 2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup, milk, and half the cheddar cheese. Mix really good. Pour into a GREASED casserole dish, top with the remaining cheese, and sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.  Cover, and bake in a 350 oven for 20 minutes, uncover and cook 10 more minutes until it bubbles.  YUMMO!
