GranMa Sandy’s Vegetable Casserole A good way to get children to eat vegetables. GranMa Sandy often made this dish for her children and they always liked this crunchy vegetable alternative.
When I’ve made this dish, everyone seems to like it much more on the next day as leftovers. I’ve taken to making this dish the day before a holiday meal and placing it in the fridge. Then cooking it for 15 to 20 minutes before serving to thoroughly heat it up.
Garrett’s Saltine Crackers
When you’re struggling and money is tight, picking up a box of crackers can sometimes seem like a luxury you can’t afford. We’ve been in that situation. It’s cheaper to pick up a pound of flour and make what you need then it is to spend $2 for this and $4 for that. Those little extra dollars eventually add up. But Gary likes having peanut butter and crackers for lunch.
When things were really bad during the recession, he worked on perfecting a saltine cracker recipe. We think he’s created a pretty good cracker.
The other good thing about making homemade crackers, you get to control how much salt is on those saltines. Or you can make your own version of a seasoned cracker. I love replacing the coarse salt with a Ranch Dressing powder for instance.
