Green Bean Casserole

Now at Thanksgiving time and often at Special holiday dinners, green bean casserole is a traditional dish that goes without saying. This Thanksgiving my mom decided that it wasn’t necessary to make it. She figured that most people don’t really like it and they just eat it because it’s tradition. While eating Thanksgiving dinner my mom when around the table and asked everyone their favorite part of Thanksgiving. My brother who was home from college and the Army said while scanning the table, “my favorite part is the green bean casserole”. Shocked my mom replies; “I didn’t know you even liked it!”. My brother smirks and says; “I didn’t know that I had to ask for it”. My mom now makes green bean casserole at every large family gathering, and we eat it because it has always been one of our favorite vegetable dishes.
