First, I would like to welcome Monroe on a Budget readers. Paula at Monroe on a Budget had a post letting readers know the Henry Ford Museum has a free family day on February 16Th. Thanks to Target. I have made my plans and that’s where my family will be on Monday. I thank Paula for her heads up! If you haven’t checked out her site yet, I encourage you to do so. She always gives me the inside scoop!
Next, I have been looking for frugal meals and tonight I found one and couldn’t wait to share.
Homemade Hamburger Helper
2 Cups nonfat dry milk 1 Cup corn starch
¼ C. beef bouillon powder 2 T. Onion flakes
1 t. dried basil 1 t. dried thyme
1 t. black pepper 2 T. dried Parsley
1 T. garlic powder
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
When ready to use: Chili Mac: 1 pound ground beef, browned and drained (you could also use turkey)
1 C. water
½ C. macaroni noodles (uncooked)
2 Cans chopped tomatoes
1T. chili powder
½ C. hamburger helper mix
Combine all ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes or until noodles are tender.
We served with rice and it was wonderful, Cheap and Frugal!
If you have a frugal dish please comment me. I would love to try it and share!
