Gage and Amberly had Thanksgiving Feasts at school today. My assignment for Amberly was easy -- plates and silverware. Gage's teacher asked me to bring green beans. I decided to make green bean casserole and found this recipe over at realmomkitchen. Honestly I didn't think the kids would touch it. It's green beans after all. I'm a fan, but these are 2nd graders we're talking about. Well...the kids loved it and I was named by Gage's peers, "The Best Green Bean Casserole Maker".
