Cooking Thursday

Today I'm sharing another recipe that's an oldie, but a goodie! This is another recipe my Mom used to make.  It's probably about 50 years old!  We didn't have many casseroles, but this was one my Dad liked.  When Bob and I got married, his Mom gave me this recipe and said it was his favorite too.
I have to admit that 2 of my kids didn't like it, because of the celery in it, but Laura has now come around and decided it's good.  So - if you want to try a recipe from the 60's this is the one!

Casserole Delicious

1 onion chopped
1 # hamburg
4 stalks celery
1/2 cup white rice
1 1/2 cup water
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Brown hamburg and onion, season to taste. Simmer with rice, celery, and water 10-15 minutes; add soups. Place all ingredients in casserole. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

I cook hamburger casserole often and we all enjoy it...I love the celery in it, but the kids never did much.
