Green Bean Casserole Cups

 I saw this on Facebook and will be making it for Thanksgiving dinner. I am placing it her to remember and share it. You can search the web and find it on other pages also. They specify Ritz crackers. But, I am using just a snack cracker available in my area. HiHo cracker were my favorite when I lived in St. Louis. I do not find them here. So, one must make due with what you can get.
May you all who read the enjoy it.
I will post photos when I make it. 

Green Bean Casserole Cups
Servings: 6 Muffins
  • One sleeve snack crackers
  • 2½ cup condensed mushroom soup
  • 1 cup french fried onions
  • 2 cups chopped green beans
  • ¾ cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup milk
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F/180˚C.
  2. Place snack crackers and ½ cup french fried onions in food processor. Reserve 3 crackers and the other ½ cup of french fried onions. Pulse the mixture to form a fine crumb.
  3. Add ½ cup of mushroom soup, pulse until combined. The texture should be pliable. If too dry add more soup, if too wet add more crackers.
  4. Take a spoonful of the mixture and mold it into a muffin tin.
  5. In a bowl, combine green beans, cheese, remaining soup, and french fried onions. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Scoop the mixture into the cracker cups.
  7. Crush the reserved snack and top each muffin.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.

Is anything true any more?

I found this post on Facebook today.
I was shocked. I posted a video below. It will say more than I am writing.But I am posting the links in the words, where I looked fore more info. 

This first one is the link from the FB Post

FDA Finds Majority of Herbal Supplements at GNC, Walmart, Walgreens, And Target Don’t Contain What They Claim – Instead Cheap Fillers Like Wheat And Soy Powder

I did a search with those words and only found 3 pages with the same words. 

I searched snopes in front of the statment above. No info to say true/not true came up.

 I searched the words (gnc supplements fake)

I found this video  

It was a PBS news re posted by that channel. 

A link to this was found there

It took me to this page for NY times. 

I ask myself and you. How do we trust what we read or buy?  

What do you think? Is this enough to make you think twice about believing everything you read? Or buying anything any more.  I do not mean to instill fear in you like some of the FB posts. I am venting and hope you question things more too. We seem to live in a world of shock now. Where we use to be innocent, and trusted everything.
