Hello! I’m back with my next family favorite recipe for side dishes. Just in case you missed yesterday’s post, I have a week’s worth of my family’s favorite side dishes lined up that you can use for both Thanksgiving and Christmas (and Easter, potlucks, other family gatherings, etc). Today’s recipe is a well-known recipe–Green Bean Casserole. I grew up eating this for holidays, but when I met Kevin I found out that his family makes theirs just a little different. They add cheese! It was good before, but adding the cheese just makes it that much better! Recipe is below!
Also yesterday I had mentioned that I was teaming up with Bayer CropScience who is partnering with Feeding America to help bring awareness and raise money for people and families who struggle with hunger. This campaign is called Thankful 4 Ag and begins tomorrow, Monday, November 10th.
Bayer CropScience is doing this unique initiative to help fight hunger, celebrate the farming community, and also educate the general public about the work growers do and the effort it takes to feed a growing planet. If you want to learn more about where you food is grown and raised, check out the CommonGround website! You will find many different kinds of farmers from across the United States and can follow along with them on their farms via social media and blogs. Have a question about your food, farming practices, etc, let me know!
In the meantime, please join the cause to help raise money for families across the United States to enjoy a warm meal this holiday season. I’ll be back tomorrow with more information about this. Stay tuned!
