Creamy Curry Egg Noodle Soup • Make this delightful dish vegan by using shrimp-free red curry paste and swapping rice noodles for egg noodles and coconut oil for butter
Coconut-Harissa Meatballs • Juicy pork meatballs nestle into a rich harissa and coconut milk sauce. If white bean mash isn’t quite your style, pair with polenta or orzo
MAKE EVERY MEAL A FEAST • Grey Poupon is for those who love the act of eating as much as they love food itself. Made in the original French style with white wine, Grey Poupon is sure to elevate every meal to feel like a feast. So take a moment to savor and enjoy your next meal with Grey Poupon.

LET’S COOK! • These cheesy, flaky ham and cheese hand pies are always delicious: at a party, as an after-school snack, even for breakfast! The extra honey mustard is extra important - that way you have more for dipping
