When I was a freshman in high school, I had to have a project for Home Ec. I had no idea what to do. Most of the girls sewed something, but I wasn’t a seamstress. (Bor-ring!)

Mom had a great idea! Why not ask the women in my life for their favorite recipes? Super! Since I didn’t have a scrap of an idea, I did it and got a good grade from it, too.  Our entire family has benefited from that little box of recipes over the years.

Klorene Lawrence gave me the recipe she called Green Rice. Everyone loves this dish. (Think I’ll whip it up for Thanksgiving this year.)

Most people have a recipe for broccoli-rice casserole, but I like this one more than any other one I’ve found.

Klorene Lawrence’s GREEN RICE

1 1/2 C Minute Rice, cooked as directed.
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 C. chopped onion
1/2 C chopped celery

1 jar Cheese Whiz
1 box frozen chopped broccoli–cooked as directed

Saute onion and celery in 1 stick of oleo until tender. Mix all ingredients together and top with Cheese Whiz. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Serve hot.
