A number of years ago, my sister-in-law shared her family's recipe for crawfish cornbread dressing with me. She is an amazing cook, so I didn't believe I could replicate her side dish masterpiece. However, she assure me how easy it was. Sure enough, it has become a holiday hit at my house, whether for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter.
Earlier this month, everyone across Acadiana collectively held our breath and said a prayer when we heard a vehicle had crashed into Sugar N' Spice Daycare on Beadle Rd. in Lafayette. One teacher and three babies were injured in the accident. Our Lady Of Lourdes is looking to help those folks, along with helping to feed Acadiana's hungry for Thanksgiving.
I absolutely love this time of year and one of the big reasons is the food, especially Mama's green bean casserole! I couldn't help but share her recipe which I'm sure will surprise you like it did me.
