One way that I have been working on our budget is NOT EATING OUT. Our biggest culprit is Sunday. My husband is a Pastor and Sunday's tend to be a long day. Enjoyable but long. If I am not conscientious about preparing our meal before I leave our home we end up eating out.
Since working on our budget we have saved lots of money by cutting this out. I utilize a lot of crock pot meals or slow cooking items.
One my dearest friends and neighboring Pastors Wife
Last Sunday's dinner was Hobo Steak and Baked Potatoes. I made up hamburger patties with seasons, topped with onion and made a tinfoil pack for each individual patty. I put them in the oven on 375 while we got dressed (45 minutes) and before I headed out to church I bumped the degrees down to 190. They cooked for about 3 hours. Oh my...they were moist, juicy, and perfect.
I then took my potatoes and gave them a good scrub, poked holes in them, and rubbed butter on them. I rolled them up in tinfoil as I would baking a potato and put them in my crock pot on high. They cooked 4 hours. They also were perfect.
Hobo Steaks (Servings 6)
1 1/2 to 2 lbs of ground beef ( I used 2)
seasonings such as salt, pepper, and garlic salt
I also tossed a brown gravy pack in the burger because it sounded good and I am using things in my cabinet up.
1/2 c of bread crumbs
Make patties as a burger patty and place in foil, top with onion, and wrap up.
