One thing I hear time and time again from a lot of busy moms is that they don't have time to cook. They have jobs and children and spouses and homes to maintain and obligations and it just gets to be too much. The last thing they want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen.Read More
My little ones are still little. Very little. I still have two under to (for the next month!). But our weeks still manage to get busy.
I know that many of you have growing children, work full time, have a long list of organizations you volunteer with etc. etc. So I thought I would share with you five of my favorite budget and family-friendly weeknight meals.Read More
Hungry? Tired? Busy? I often find myself all three.
This is my go to recipe. It requires little time and little effort and I can have it on the table in 20 minutes! Plus it is SUPER frugal.
And it's so good my husband will ask me to make it. Just 4 ingredients!Read More
Last week I cooked a chicken in my crock pot. Seriously, if you've never cooked a chicken like this you need to. It saves so much time and energy.
However, every time I make a whole chicken I have scads of leftovers. I was able to make a pot pie, a quick Paella and White Chicken Chili with the leftovers.Read More
I don't know about you, but stopping by Publix to pick up a rotisserie chicken is pretty much the easiest thing ever. Especially on a Sunday after church.
But if you're like us you ALWAYS have a ton of chicken left over.Read More
Cheese! Glorious Cheese! Remember those commercials? I posted a clip from YouTube at the bottom of this post so you can live it again and again.
Side note: The video description says the commercial came out in 1987. Wow. Now I feel old!
Anyhoo- Since we've gone off bread and sugar and anything that makes life worth living, I decided to make burgers. Bunless burgers. Waah, waah waaaaahhh!
Actually, they were really good. It's not the bun that makes the burger folks. Just wrap that bad boy up in some lettuce and move on. It's really good.
I mixed some fresh herbs and garlic and of course cheese and bam! It was a dang good burger if I say so myself.
What you'll need:
1lb LEAN ground beef
2 cloves mince garlic
1 tbsp onion powder
5 basil leaves
3 tbsp grated or shredded parmesan cheese
A few slices of SUPER SHARP cheddar
Your fixins' we topped our with a beautiful locally grown tomato and some Marie's Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing purchased on the cheap at Publix.
Fire up your grill and let's get to business of making burgers.
Combine your first six ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands.
Place on your grill. I used our George Foreman Grill with removable plates. I love George.
Once your burgers have reached their (well your) desired cooking temperature place your cheese slices across like an x and let melt a little.
Top with all your favorites and wrap in lettuce.
Look! Burgers even excite those with no teeth to eat them!
