Hey friends! It’s a soggy Monday here in NC…again, but I promised myself yesterday that no matter what was going on outside, I’d be pumped up and positive when the sun came up. Maybe it’s because November gets us all thinking about Thanksgiving or maybe it’s because we’ve had an extremely busy, unsettling fall around here.
I am so very thankful for all that I’ve been given, especially my family. Even though there are times of conflict, confusion and a little uneasiness, we’ve always managed to come out stronger as a family that always includes more love and respect for each other. Last night I surprised my guys with a big family dinner so that we could spend time sharing and celebrating each other. For me, the dinner table is probably the most important place in the home ~ you laugh, share a meal, maybe shed a tear or two, it’s a place of “no guilting,” celebrate life’s milestones, doing homework, and making memories.
That’s exactly what we did last night. One of the dishes I served was Broccoli Casserole. This dish has about 6 ingredients, is easy to make and has all the flavors that you crave from comfort food. I’m planning more of these special family dinners in the days to come along with serving up more great food that helps to make special memories.
