Sarah Jessica Parker!!!!! Do I????

I was sitting here all night thinking hmmm... feels like I should be doing something but I was so happy that no... in fact there was nothing on tap after the Brownie meeting tonight! My bestie and I dropped the girls off at their mtg. and zipped over to our local hideout for a quick glass o' wine... clearly this was my first mistake. Cause when I got home I proceeded to do nothing but watch Bravo and tweet happily from my sofa.  And then I realized right as I was about to go upstairs... shit... it's Thanksgiving pot luck at the office tomorrow. I have to make a freaking double batch of green bean casserole and it's ... almost 11:00.

Shhhhhhhugahhhhhhh! Oopsie!!!

So... here we go..... at 10:55...

Here's my post on how to throw together a mac daddy green bean casserole right as you are about to hop into bed. Cause who doesn't like a green bean casserole? and ya really can't screw it up. If you can read that is. And the other beauty part is you can use all store brand el cheapo ingredients and no one will be the wiser... cross my heart... go cheap! Here is what I recommend....

Gather up your store brand or name brand canned delicacies; Green Beans ( 2 cans - I like the cut variety) Cream of Mushroom Soup (1-can), Worcestershire Sauce (1/2 tsp.), Black Pepper (1/2 tsp.), Milk (1 cup) and French fried onion goodness (1 1/3 cup divided). BTW... I doubled all of this. Call your inner Mama June and Honey Boo Boo and open up dem cans... And here's my fancy kitchen tip of the day. Get one of these battery operated can openers that you start by touching the button and walk away. It opens the can for you and you can go sip on your wine do other stuff. Also it cuts the whole top off the can so no sharp edges. It's a good thing. Drain your beans and mix up your soup and milk with a sweet little wire whisk, till it's nice and smooth. & creamy 

Next up combine your green beans and milk/soup mixture in your casserole dish, add in the Worcestershire, pepper and 1/2 the onions and mix it up really well. Pop it in the oven and bake until bubbly. 

Take it back out, put some more french fried onions on and pop it back in till those crunchy little onions are even more brown and crispy. And here is what you end up with a mere hour and 15 minutes later... when you should be sleeping. 

Let this be a lesson to all of you. Don't try to sneak in a glass or two of wine while your kid is at her brownie meeting. You will be punished ....

What's your favorite throw it together dish for the holidays?
