How was everybody’s Easter yesterday? Ours was full of family and church and lots and lots of chocolate. Seriously I think Charlotte ate her weight in candy. She loves it when Grandma’s in town and in charge of buying the basket-fillers.
We had our Easter egg hunt over at my sister Nikki’s. They just got back from Disneyland so this was the first time they met Truman. After a few minutes of chatting when we arrived, Nikki all the sudden goes, “Oh my gosh, Karen, you’re wearing normal clothes. When you walked in I thought to myself, ‘Man, Karen’s lookin kinda fat today.’ But you look good for having a baby a week ago!” I think she wins the back-handed compliment of the year award. Still though. I’ll take it.
So I know “Chicken and Broccoli Stuff” may not sound very appetizing, but this casserole is bomb. (Oh yeah I just said that.) My mom made this for us all growing up. She was feeding 5 kids on a budget, so that right there tells you several things about this recipe: it’s cheap, it’s delicious, it makes a ton, and if we’re being honest with ourselves, is probably not the healthiest casserole ever made. But it is dang good. It’s similar to the Poppyseed Chicken I posted a few weeks ago. But hey this one’s got broccoli in it! Yum.
