  1. Sounds like a great meal I will try your broccoli recipe, cause my kids and I love brocolli, but hubby won't touch it..

    1. Mine won't either! My husband and I have been instructing our kids to eat their vegetables whether they like it or not. I have been making my family eat more broccoli lately and love it that my kids tell their father that he can't leave the table until he finishes his broccoli :-)

  2. Ooh, that broccoli cheddar casserole sounds really good! It's a lot like the soup we make, but there are some differences. I think we'll try that next time, instead of the soup to see how it tastes!

  3. get idea for Easter dinner. have to try some for my dinner
