My baby-girl is having surgery tomorrow. Yes, it’s just a tonsillectomy with adenoidectomy, but still she’s my baby-girl.
So, I headed out to check the mail just like any other day. I had a key to the big boxes (ours are really small). I wasn’t expecting anything, so I got really excited when I opened it and found a huge bag in it.
When I got back inside, I grabbed a pair of scissors and opened it up.
This is what I found!
I sat here and couldn’t decide what to make for dinner. I thought, looked through my recipes, thought some more. Finally, I just went to the pantry and started pulling cans out.
Here is the result.
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 can tomato soup
1 can creamed corn
2 cans diced potatoes
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1/4 C ketchup
1/4 C salsa
Brown ground beef with onion. Add potatoes, garlic powder and cumin. Stir and simmer on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add corn, ketchup, soup, salsa. Stir to incorporate. Heat on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes. Serve over biscuits or cornbread, if desired.
I, of course, have an Android phone. I, of course, use it A LOT!
The other day, when I had TONS of errands to run, I forgot my car charger in our other vehicle. Thank goodness I have US Cellular. A quick stop at one of their stores and I’m back to errands with a fresh, fully charged battery.
I love the convenience of US Cellular’s battery swap. Pop in, let them know you need to swap your battery. Give them your phone number. They’ll switch your battery out and you’re on your way. 10 minutes, tops, from my experience.
One of the many features I love about being a US Cellular customer. I am also a USCC Customer Crew Member.
I normally don’t take the time to make Orange Chicken, because I normally don’t have the extra time for it. But, tonight, it sounds just right for dinner.
Here is the recipe for 4 servings.
I honestly thought I’d never find a recipe that made an Eye-of-Round roast tender, but I’ve been proven wrong.
This recipe, found on AllRecipes, is perfect! It’s tender, pink in the middle and perfect for french dips! Which, is what’s for dinner tonight! I mean, look at how perfect this looks and it’s moist and tender too!
High Temperature Eye-of-Round
We buy pork loins. Then, cut them into chops, roasts, country style ribs. It’s cheaper and makes for more meals in the long run. The last of the current loin is 4 butterfly chops. I’ll be making them into stuffed pork chops tonight, with a cheater recipe. Here’s the recipe.
Disgustingly Easy Stuffed Pork Chops
1 lb beef roast, cut in 1″ strips
2 Portabello caps, sliced 1/8″ thick
1 Onion, sliced thin
2 Tbsp Butter
1 1/2 C Beef Broth
1 – 1 1/4 C Shiraz or other full bodied Red Wine
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Marjoram
1 Tsp Clove
3 Tbsp Parsley
1 Bay Leaf
I took a break from couponing for a few months. Mostly at my husband’s request, because we were running out of storage space for what I was getting and my daughter desperately needed her dresser back.
So, today, after 4 months, I returned to couponing. I needed conditioner, because we all know it goes so much faster than the shampoo ever does!
CVS, here we come!
This was my ‘haul’ today. Not a lot, but still a great deal in the end.
