Easy Cheesy Broccoli & Rice

Easy Cheesy Broccoli & Rice

I can’t tell you how glad I am that Wednesday is here already. My son only has 4 more days at home for summer break and then school starts and I will be doing a gleeful dance with my 4 year old daughter all over the house! I don’t know about you, but I am so relieved to be getting back into our regular routine. If you’re looking for a new easy recipe for your meal planning this fall, here’s a winner I made last week. It’s a quick and easy side dish, especially after a long day at work. It’s sure to please your little ones and your big ones (by big ones, I’m talking about Ryan).
