Shopping and Cooking for a Week at My House, Part 2
I had another day of running kids to the airport and testing. So again, I wanted something that was not to taxing! ~smile~
We had bbq hamburgers. I made a comment that we don't buy beef from the grocery store, however there is one exception.I do purchase frozen hamburger patties from Costco, occasionally. Right now I am doing it
because I am almost out of beef (have another cow on order), and wanted to save the hamburger I have left for other meals.
While I was waiting for my son to finish up a test he was taking I stopped by Walmart. I picked up 2 cabbages and some green chilies. Remind me not get my canned green chilies from Walmart.. at least not that one, I don’t shop at Super Walmart for groceries typically because they never seem to have what I need and this was the case once again. All they had were the little cans of chilies. I typically buy whole chilies in a big can to make chili rellenos (on the menu Sunday night). Not much of a grocery trip, but nonetheless here it is..
Total Spent: $5.09
I got home early enough to get some hamburger buns made. My favorite recipe for this is my
oatmeal dinner rolls. These are great tasting hamburger buns. I am able to get 16 buns made from the recipe. They freeze great too..
The lettuce was from my garden, tomatoes still from last weeks shopping, sliced onions and swiss cheese. I served Kettle brand ‘lightly salted’ potato chips (bought those last week) with this meal. And Leanne and Isaac made a bigbowl of coleslaw with one of the cabbages I bought.
Happy Day for us!! Tobin and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary! :) We went out to eat and the kids stayed home and made dinner for themselves. They ate leftover burgers and had sausages left from Tuesday and coleslaw.
Part three.. to be continued..
