Every holiday, we used to have an assigned family that would take care of that specific meal.
Thanksgiving went to an Aunt and Uncle, Christmas to Grandma and Grandpa, and Easter was Mom and Dad’s turn. As we all got older though, it wasn’t quite so easy for these guys to make dinner for our growing families. Now all of us have our own kids, and we are the Aunts and Uncles and Moms and Dads and those that once held that position are the Grandmas and Grandpas.
After a few of us got married, it was suggested that we started doing potlucks instead of making one person cook for nearly fifty people. I never had a problem with it. In fact, it sounded perfect for me.
That way we can get all different kinds of foods instead of the same thing every time we went. I found this recipe on Group Recipes for broccoli and rice and it was so simple and delicious, it’s now my go-to meal for every holiday.
If I don’t bring it, everyone always is wondering what happened to the popular dish!
