Long Day

Today seems like it has been such a long day. And yet I don't really feel like I DID anything today. I mostly worked on my ebay stuff.

Played a bunch of games of cards with the kids. They finally got to use the card holders I won from Steals and Deals. They really were great for the little kids. I didn't have to help at all! Don't mind the crap in the background, little kids make messes much faster than I have energy to keep up with. We must have played 20 games of Go Fish.

Did a bunch of laundry, can't even tell I washed anything still so much to do (where the crap does that all come from??? I could have sworn I was all caught up the other day..)

Made dinner with the Tupperware Stacker again. The plan was to make all this:

Started with the bottom one. Ok getting the ingredients together. Umm yeah it's called CHILI BEANS and rice and um I didn't write chili on my list so of course I didn't buy it either. I found a can of black beans and figured that would be good enough.


Instant Rice=had
Green Pepper (1/2)=.38
Chicken Boullion=had
Chili Powder=had
Chili Beans=didn't have but had black beans :O)
Cheddar Cheese=had
Total cost=.38

Then onto the main course Burrito Casserole. (forgot the olives for the picture)

1 lb ground beef=2.80
Tomato sauce=had
Chili Powder=had
Kidney Beans=.78
Taco Sauce=free thanks to Taco Bell (had in fridge lol)
Monterey Jack Cheese=.57 for 1/2 cup (used cheap taco blend)
Lettuce=.64 for 1/2 a head
Olives=.64 for 1/2 a can
Tortilla Chips=.89 for 1/2 a bag but it was really only a handful. TG I had pulled them out the kids were drooling over the bag of chips when they saw it and devoured it in minutes.
Total cost=6.47

It starts off telling you how you can cook the ground beef in the microwave. I thought about that for a sec and then decided to just do it on the stove. Scott got home before I was totally finished with this course and so I decided to skip the apples for tonight.

Here's the finished product.

Total cost to make:$6.85=serves 4 for $1.71 a plate

Tastes just like Taco Salad. Could have made that without the microwave lol. The other rice/beans thing of course looks nothing like the picture since I didn't have the correct BEANS. Duh might have to try that one again some time. One serving or so left. Not sure if Scott will take it for lunch tomorrow, if not it's mine :O)

I think I've decided for my next "Menu" I am going to go through the cupboards and find things to make with the weird stuff I have hanging around.Pin It
