I have a lot of Non-American readers, making it necessary for my to explain why I’m doing a post about a green bean casserole.
In America, we have this very strange tradition of making our Thanksgiving feast from cans of food. Nearly every dish that most Americans grew up eating on that November Holiday involved a can of soup, or a package of Jell-o. I see you all, nodding your American heads in agreement. A smile for Grandmas Jell-o salad that still graces your Holiday table because your own kids would FLIP if it wasn’t there in that big Pyrex bowl. I know, don’t think I was exempt from this in my upbringing. But we are grown-ups now. We live in a country that has over 13 million acres of farm land dedicated to fruits and veggetables. We even grow 100 million TONS of produce every year.
We should eat it.
A lot of it. Eat food, not chemicals.
Try it, my American friends, we are lucky enough to live in a country with more produce that we could ever eat. Let’s give it a shot.
Could you do it? Cook an entire Thanksgiving without ONE can? I’m gonna.
