It’s time for my 2nd favorite holiday of the year! Cinco de Mayo! The day we celebrate one of THE most important food groups on the food pyramid… Mexican food! Huh? You heard me! In our little nest we realize how extremely important it is to make sure we adhere to the major food groups! Okay, all joking aside, because our daughter and son are both hispanic we always celebrate the holiday by serving our favorite Mexican foods. Usually I make taquito’s, chili rellenos and fresh homemade salsa. They’re great! However, lately we have all developed a love for Carne Asada! So, I decided to come up with my own recipe. I’m just super brave like that! Or, crazy?!
I was contemplating what to post for my very first main dish recipe here at “Norine’s Nest”? Immediately I thought of the dish that captured my hubs heart long before I did! (Truth be told, I’m pretty sure this sealed the deal of heart capturing! Yeah, it’s THAT good!) Chicken broccoli casserole is just one of those super wonderful comfort foods. Right up there with mac-n-cheese (The real kind!) and fresh hot homemade bread with melted butter! The flavors in this dish are out of this world! My mom made this casserole for our family as I was growing up, and I made it for my birds. I still make it! Even with all the little birds gone!
