Broccoli Rice Casserole

It’s Thanksgiving Week!!!  You know what that means……more Thanksgiving recipes!  On the menu today is Broccoli Rice Casserole.  I love how creamy and cheesy the rice and broccoli get when they are baked in this casserole.  This delicious Broccoli and Rice Casserole is on our Thanksgiving table every year!

I think this will be my 19th Thanksgiving to make this recipe.  This Broccoli Rice Casserole was the first dish I took to a family function after I got married.  I had always liked broccoli casseroles, especially the ones with rice, so I started looking through various cookbooks I had been given as wedding presents.  When I came across this one, I immediately knew that’s what I was looking for. It has been a hit since then and everyone just automatically assumes that I will be bringing it for Thanksgiving every year.  It really is good!

Cranberry Relish

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week!  How has the year flown by so quickly?  I am going to post a few of our Thanksgiving staples here in the next week.  I decided to start with my favorite Cranberry  Relish.  The great thing about this cranberry relish is that it can be made ahead of time and frozen.  I think the more things that you can prepare ahead of time, the better.  Even though we don’t host the meal at our house, it still seems to be a hectic day.

Once you see how easy it is to make your own Cranberry Relish, you will not want the store-bought stuff!  This version is so fresh and citrusy and it could not be easier to make!
