Today for lunch, I made one of our family's all-time favorites, Green Bean Casserole. And to think that I remembered to take a picture before it was gone! Here is the recipe:

Green Bean Casserole

One large can green beans
2 white mushrooms
white sauce using chicken broth instead of milk
salt and pepper to taste
french fried onions

Diced the mushrooms very small (these are for flavor) and saute in some butter until done. Add the butter for your white sauce; finish making your white sauce. If you need this recipe to be dairyfree, make sure you use fake butter and Swanson's chicken broth (the only df broth on the market). Add your green beans and stir to mix. Place in a greased baking dish and cook for 15 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle onion on top and cook 5 more minutes. Again, if you are making this dairy-free, make sure you use Durkins onion rings since French's contains milk.

For our family, we use a restaurant size can of green beans from BJs and put everything in a 12x15 baking dish. We never have leftovers with this dish, *so sad*.

If you need to make this dish wheat free, use cornstarch or arrowroot. If your children don't like the taste of mushrooms, then leave them out.

Today our temperature is 98 degrees with a heat index of 108! I am so thankful for air conditioning. Have a nice weekend, stay cool. Many blessings ~ Kathie
