This has been a busy month. Lots of great things but just quite a bit of cash going out at once. I spent a week in hotels with my daughter for St. Patrick’s Day. Then this past weekend we headed to Madison, WI to celebrate the 50th birthday of a dear friend. We all arrived home sick but in the meantime a distant cousin died and my partner needed to head back to Wisconsin for the funeral. Another trip and another night in a hotel. When we got home and running the washing machine it ate our clothes. Literally. We have to call the repair person tomorrow. Ick. Then we are looking for a new car. Mine has 230,000+ miles and is a great car but it is time to make her a town car. I HATE buying cars. I like driving and looking at them, but the price thing? No. Just no.
Generally I do a No Buy January and June. Which basically means that for those two months we eat from the freezer and pantry, only buying limited fresh produce and dairy. This year I skipped the No Buy January but I am kind of glad because I am hitting the No Buy March so that we don’t have to dip into savings accounts. I cut my grocery bills these months usually by about 75%.
So, that means I am making things that are strange. So, no real recipe today just an explanation of what I am doing and as it gets closer to March 31st the stranger the meals may be.
This is made from Vegan burgers, which are leftover from my son’s vegetarian phase. No one really liked these burgers but I couldn’t just throw them away so they have been sitting in the freezer. Time to use them up. We had two packages of bacon in the freezer and some sharp cheddar cheese in the refrigerator. I don’t know about your house but in ours if it has enough bacon and cheese on it or in it someone will eat it. I had two packages of the vegan burgers and by the end of dinner time all 8 were gone. Success!
