Tuesday and Terrific

I have written the same paragraph twice I'm response to the naysayers . They can't understand the concept of saving. if you spend 25.00, you spend 25.00. If you loose 10 pounds, You LOOSE ten pounds. If you waste 25.00, you waste 25.00. What a concept! Waste it, save it? The jar is either half empty or half full! LOL

basically, I started writing this blog so people on SNAP that were running out of money before they ran out of month got some help in making informed decisions at the grocery store. Some people that are not on SNAP have incorporated the savings into their budget, enjoyed a new time saving recipe, or a technique to get out of the kitchen faster. Whatever you take from it, I hope I am helping people.

I don't advertise on my blog, I am doing this to try to help .

One of the ways to save on ground beef is to be mindful of the prices and the fat content of the beef. The TRUE price is the amount of the meat per pound TIMES 1.XX. The XX is the amount of fat content it has. Remember if you defat hamburger, you are pouring it down the drain. better in the house pipes than yours!!

If another cut of beef is cheaper than good hamburger, grind your own. If you don't have a kitchen aid grinder attachment, you can get the grinders that our great grandmothers had pretty cheap at an antique store or flea market or in our grannies attic!

Another option.
Freeze chuck roast for about 15 minutes. Cut in in large chunks and pulse chop on the food processor 20 - 22 times until roughly chopped. Rough chop is more tender and juicy. You can add seasoning if you like. Shape into patties or batch cook.

Roasted onion topping for hamburgers.

Chop 1 small onion
Drizzle with olive oil
Sprinkle with salt

Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until tender.

You can put in the beef mixture before grilling, or add to mayo for on top of the cooked burger.

Other ideas

Teriyaki burgers with pineapple.
JalapeƱo burgers
Blue cheese burgers
Any idea?

I'm trying to low carb and lower my blood sugars lately.
Yesterday I had a lettuce wrap with cheese, bacon and tomato . And some fruit for lunch.
