In just two days I will be in the kitchen cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I think this has to be one of my FAVORITE days of the year when I get to put my cooking skills to the test. I have already planned out all the dishes I will be making, including the appetizers and desserts.
When it comes to dishes that I make on this special day, I always make green bean casserole. Out of all the vegetables that you can think of, my family LOVES green beans. This is the one vegetable that I can put on their plates that they will all eat. Since Thanksgiving is just a couple days away, I thought I would share with you this YUMMY recipe for green bean casserole that includes Libby’s Green Beans and BACON!
