Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole
I liked this recipe, though I changed a *bunch* of stuff for my preferences. First, I used frozen cauliflower and broccoli, which I steamed for almost 10 minutes before adding to the casserole. Next time I will use fresh veggies and steam them a little longer because the texture was kind of tough. I omitted the onions because I just don't like them, so there was no need for the butter. I substituted 1-2 cups of shredded carrots for the rice to increase the veggie content and that worked (plus it added a nice pop of color). I used cream of mushroom soup because I had it on hand and about 2/3 a pound of extra sharp cheddar cheese. I melted the cheese with the soup and milk before adding the veggies since the cheddar cubes needed a little more time to integrate into the sauce. After baking for 30 minutes the flavor was good, but the sauce was runny and the veggies were still too crisp. So I baked it for another hour in 20 minute increments. It ended up being ok that night, but the next day it was awesome. The leftover factor took it from 3 stars to 4. If I can work out the kinks (thicken the sauce, soften the veggies), I might get mine up to 5 star status.

Best Spanish Rice
This spanish rice is straight up comfort food! It is super easy to make, DELICIOUS, and it makes great leftovers, so you can enjoy it for days. I originally made it to accompany chicken fajitas, though it is great on it's own (or mixed with a little sour cream and cheddar cheese), on a taco salad, or in burritos. My husband, who is the pickiest eater I know, LOVES it. I make it several times a month and it comes out perfectly every time. I would make it more often, but I fear I might eat the whole batch and supersize myself! I like to sneak extra veggies into everything I make, so with this I use a whole onion and at least one bell pepper. Other things I will likely try in the future include corn, celery, carrots, or peas. I might even get away with some chopped up cauliflower. I also like the idea of using brown rice to "healthy it up" a little bit. We'll see if my hubbie even notices... Enjoy :)
