Cranberry Beef Stir Fry
I really liked this. so did most of my family. I made this mostly as written, I did substitute chopped cabbage for the peas, 'cause that's what I had on hand. I felt the garlic went well with the cranberry sauce. I had a little trouble getting the cranberry sauce to melt all the way, next time I might try melting it in the microwave before adding it to the skillet, or I might try a can of whole berry cranberry sauce. I cooked this quite a bit longer than the recipe calls for but one of my guilty secrets is that I really like my broccoli mushy. I know, not the healthiest way to eat it, but IMO the tastiest. A side note to those of you needing to use up cranberry sauce, it goes really well with curry too.

Green Beans with Cheese and Bacon
My family really liked this. As usual I made some changes due to time and pantry limitations. First I used 2 cans of drained green beans, 3/4 of a cup of chopped yellow onions and one link (6 oz) of smoked sausage chopped, 1 cup plain Greek yogurt with a pinch of sugar,(as a sub for the sour cream) 1/3 cup miracle whip and 1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded cheese. I dumped it all together in a casserole dish, laid some triangles of sliced cheese on the top and baked it for 30 minutes at 350. As you can tell I'm a shortcut cook and while that doesn't always work this came out great. I think I could have gone with only 1/2 a link of smoked sausage, it was a dominant flavor, but still delicious! I think this was a great dish and very forgiving, also the addition of herbs might give this a whole different character. Thank you so much for a good solid side dish!

Hawaiian Beef Casserole
This was very good. Most of my family liked it. Due to renal disease I can't have beans so I switched out the beans for chopped cabbage. Worked beautifuly! I did omit the added sugar but used all the pineapple juice. Sweet, but not too much so. Try it with soy sauce!
