with dinner, that is. I am trying to make the most of what we have to make what we buy last longer. I came to the realization that I'm falling back into the quick, easy meals and that will end up costing us more in the long run. While I'm home, I need to try new recipes and think outside the Hamburger Helper box. :)
So...last Tuesday I made this...
Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza
I made the crust from scratch (because, yes, I like to...really!), used barbecue sauce instead of pizza sauce, mozzarella then hamburger and bacon crumbles on top of that topped with cheddar cheese. I think it tasted good, the kids liked it...I didn't get a final verdict from the picky one of the house, though. He hasn't complained yet and hasn't cracked any lame jokes about it, so I guess it was okay.
Wednesday, I found a recipe for turkey cornbread pot pie on this site. I had chicken instead of turkey and an actual cornbread mix I put on top instead of the refrigerated cornbread twists.
Once again, the kids and I liked it (they even ate their vegetables), but the picky one didn't say anything. There are a lot of options on this one that I will play with and see if I can actually create a recipe that's mine.
