Poppy Seed Casserole

Menu: Poppy Seed Casserole Spinach The Best Brownies Comments: Poppy Seed Casserole is a variation on your basic chicken-and-rice casserole. I make it when Rice-a-Roni goes on sale.

Nacho Casserole

Menu: Nacho Casserole Cooked Baby Carrots 2 gallons Purdyville Juice (see Search) Comments: Cadie picked this to cook tonight.

Beef 'n' Beans 'n' Cornbread

Menu: Purdyville Beef and Beans Dad’s Favorite Cornbread 2 gallons Purdyville Juice (use Search to find recipe) Comments: These two recipes go way, way back in our family.

Menu: Hamburgers on Hamburger Buns Carrot Sticks Purdyville Juice (see recipe search) Comments: Most people would consider hamburgers a quick and inexpensive meal.
