Feeling poor?

Yesterday I was browning some meat for Hamburger Helper. I decided to brown the whole 2.5 pounds at once to cut down on cooking time. So, today, I had 1.5 pounds of cooked hamburger and no clue what to do with it. Shockingly, the family loved it so much, seconds and in some cases thirds were had by all. It's quick, it's easy, it's cheap. YAY! I made a ton, and Brad will be taking it lunch for a couple of days. :o) Feel free to half it.

I cooked 3 cups of rice. While it was cooking I put the browned hamburger into a sauce pan with 2 cans of cream of mushroom, 1 cup of milk, and 1.5 cups of frozen corn. Once the rice is done and the sauce is hot, just put it on top of the rice. Salt and pepper to taste. It was actually quite yummy.


I really love San Pelligrino's Limonata. But a 6 pack costs $5.00. Now I make my own.

I buy a big bottle of real lemon juice.

First I put lemon juice in a cup, I like mine tart, so about 1/4 c. Then I add a packet of sweetner and swirl it around to dissolve the sweetner. Then I add seltzer water to taste. I suppose you could use regular water, but the bubbles really make it taste better somehow.

Yum. :o)
