Dinner Tonight - November 15, 2010
So tonight I will take a teaspoon of butter and melt it in a skillet, add some sliced onions to cook until they carmelize. Then I will take those onions out of the skillet and set them aside and add a tablespoon of worcestershire sauce to the skillet and that is what I will cook the hamburger patties in. The onions will go on top of the hamburger patties.
I made a batch of homemade hamburger buns this afternoon. Along with the hamburgers I will served baked beans and a simple fruit salad (fruit cocktail with added mandarin oranges).
I made some cornflake bars this afternoon. Take 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of light corn syrup and bring it to a boil. Then turn off the heat and add 1 cup of peanut butter. Pour this mixture over 6 to 8 cups (more or less) of cornflakes and pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. You can top these with melted chocolate, but they are perfect just the way they are.
I always have several meals that I can make from what I have on hand and I have found that asking my family the night before if they have any requests gives me plenty of time to thaw out any meat. Tomorrow I will need to head to the store to pick up some milk and some produce.
Even though I have budgeted a certain amount of money each week for produce and dairy items, I will make sure to post each week what I am actually spending and what I have purchased.
