Last week we did a Thanksgiving recap post. This year for Thanksgiving, Julie was at Jodi’s house, but Jodi was at her in-laws so she wasn’t there. Yes we’re TRYING to confuse you. Today’s post is brought to you by Julie (who married Jodi’s brother)
My assignment was a green bean casserole and rolls. Easy enough. I decided I would just make the recipe according to instructions and not try any healthy, food storage alterations. I didn’t want to offend any of my in-laws. Well I made the recipe, according to instructions, but then I got worried there wouldn’t be enough so I made a second batch the way I wanted to… It wouldn’t have been a fail, if I hadn’t broken the number 1 rule to sneaking food storage. Read on…
- I replaced the can of cream of mushroom with a recipe of the bean flour cream soup
- I skipped the milk completely, because our family doesn’t drink milk
- I used freeze dried green beans instead of canned (alright I did that in both recipes, but never told anyone that one!). I just soaked them for a couple minutes first in water, then drained them.
