Oh I remember green bean casserole as a kid.
Bread. Turkey. Mashed taters. Gravy. Pumpkin pie.
That was the extent of what was acceptable to my palate back then.
What the heck was IN green bean casserole anyway?
It looked weird and so I assumed it would taste weird.
And it was GREEN.
Fast forward to adulthood.
I still have never, ever eaten green bean casserole.
But I want to!
I have spent the last year or so re-developing my palate to be able to enjoy more and more vegetables.
Even the green ones!
This Thanksgiving I am going to tackle that green bean casserole like a champ.
But apparently not all green bean casseroles are made the same way. You can change it up and add some variety so you can go beyond the Casserole!
Sam’s Club is a great place to get your holiday ingredients for two reasons.
- First, because you buy in bulk, you save money and have ingredients left over for future meals.
- Second, they have a great Holiday Recipe site to help you make your holiday cooking a bit easier and creative.
