Baked Apricot Casserole
1 (17 oz.) can apricot halves,drained
1 c. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 c. buttered cracker crumbs (town house), or sleeve of Ritz
1/2 c. butter

In a greased casserole dish, arrange the apricot halves, cut side up. Sprinkle the bown sugar and then the cracker crumbs over the apricots. Dot the crumbs with buter. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until the casserole has thickened and is crusty on the top.

I have never made this but will soon bc I love it and have had it at several potlucks. So sweet and southern.

Marinade Green Beans

6 cans of whole green beans, drained
1 stick butter, melted
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. soy sauce

Heat and mix butter, brown sugar and soysauce until brown sugar is dissolved. Pour green beans in 9x13-inch dish. Pour brown sugar mixtrue over green beans. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator overnight. If desired before baking, sprinkle with bacon or bacon bits( I have never tried it with the bacon). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes uncovered.

This is for my exfriend Carrie even though she does not want to use butter and has fresh green beans. I do not know how to cook under those two conditions.

The green beans are actually very good. Not to mention Heather is a very good cook. Of course, adding bacon could not hurt ANYTHING.

I'll try the green beans with Earth Balance, our butter substitute. Yummy!
