How To Make a Cheesy Vegetable Medley
It is common to be anxious when finalizing the menu for a dinner at home. While it is simple to decide whether to go for red meat or white, chicken, fish or turkey, baked, steamed or barbecued, you may often run out of ideas when it comes to the side dish. Remember, vegetables are always the best option for filling the empty sides around your turkey, chicken or fish.
If you are also planning to invite your friends but are facing the same side dish problem, then stop contemplating and go for a Cheesy Vegetable Medley. Visit your nearest grocer, fill your basket with fresh vegetables of different varieties. Don’t forget to purchase Swiss cheese, or your favourite type, along with cream of mushroom soup from the store.
