Cooking Thursday

I'm sharing another oldie with you today.  This is one that Bob and I both grew up on, and it was one of our favorites.  We both still like it, but our kids are not as fond of it.  Heather likes it but not Laura and Andy because of the celery in it.  Laura used to call it "Happy Casserole' in a sarcastic way!
But - if you like celery, you'll like it too!

Happy Casserole
1 onion chopped
1 # ground beef
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 ground beef 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.
