Food Storage Recipe - Dried Bean Patties

This is a good one. I will use left over cooked navy beans.

 Mash up about 2 cups of cooked dried navy beans

 Add them to-
             about 1/2 a cup of chopped onion
             some parsley

 Beat that up and then add -
              2 egg yolks
              2 Teaspoon milk
             salt and pepper

 Shape the mixture into balls and flatten them into patties.
Dip them into flour.
 Fry them slowly until browned. I use leftover bacon fat to fry them in.

 We have eaten them as sandwiches on buns or just to go as a side dish .The great thing about this recipe is that you can change it up as you like. Even use other type of beans. Black beans are a great one to use. On the "burger" you can add all of your favorite toppings.

Mend Your Denim To Save Money!

Learning how to mend your clothing items is a great way to save money. It is also a great way to give thrifted clothing an update!

Mending Matters: Stitch, Patch, and Repair Your Favorite Denim & More is a fun book showing ways to mend denim. Mending Matters explores sewing on two levels: First, it includes more than 20 hands-on projects that showcase current trends in visible mending that are edgy, modern, and bold—but draw on traditional stitching. It does all this through just four very simple mending techniques: exterior patches, interior patches, slow stitches, darning, and weaving. In addition, the book addresses the way mending leads to a more mindful relationship to fashion and to overall well-being. In essays that accompany each how-to chapter, Katrina Rodabaugh explores mending as a metaphor for appreciating our own naturally flawed selves, and she examines the ways in which mending teaches us new skills, self-reliance, and confidence, all gained from making things with our
own hands.

Food Storage Recipe - Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

I always seem to find these pre formed hamburgers at my local grocery store during manager specials. VERY Low cost!! They are so good to throw in the freezer and then pull out when you need a quick meal. The last couple of times I have used them to make this slow cooker salisbury steak. Everything from my food storage!

We have this with Mashed potatoes!



NEED:

4 - 6 pre formed hamburger patties

steak seasoning

Cup of frozen chopped onions

1 package of sliced mushrooms

1 package of beef gravy mix

1 1/2 cup of beef broth

salt and pepper to taste

Spray your slow cooker with a bit of non stick spray.

Start layering the meat patties , seasoning , onion , and mushrooms.

Add the gravy mix and the broth to this and let this cook for about 4 - 5 hours on high.

Stir it up a bit . Serve with mashed potatoes. We usually have a salad and some kind of bread. 




 

Upcycle - Recover A Table

My card table gets used a lot and had some tears in it. So as I was redoing my kitchen drawers and shelves with contact paper the idea came to me to recover the table! Easy and was only $2.00! Frugal upcycle of a card table that I was thinking of throwing out! The 2nd piece took longer to put on because I had to match the flowers up. But, I think I did it pretty good!
