Sassy get Suffed for under TEN BUCKS!

Now that we’re back from vacation, Sassy has begun her quest to make a meal for fewer than ten dollars, and is planning a meal for dinner for the next three days!

We had one last night, and these were her ingredients!

1 package of ground hamburger. (2 lbs at 1.99 a pound)

1 box of Stove Top stuffing (beef) ($1.49)

Sweet Corn (10 ears for $2.00)

Onion (we had one in our pantry thank God)

package of generic pre-made salad. (.99)

Total cost of Sassy’s meal? Are you ready????

A whopping $8.46!!

She mixed the meat, along with salt, pepper, onion and meat tenderizer. Then, she mixed up the stuffing. She rolled the meat out into a rectangle, and then spread a layer of stuffing down the center. Kind of like a tube of stuffing- according to HER.

Then she rolled it into a cylinder, and clamped the ends together. Voila! A stuffed meatloaf. She put a line of ketchup across the top, and placed onion rings in a line on it as well. (She said it had to not only TASTE good, but LOOK good as well.

She baked it at 350 degrees for about 55 minutes. Along with the meatloaf, we had fresh sweet corn and a lovely salad.

Yeah For Sassy!! Of course she’s getting herself into trouble, because now we KNOW she can cook. She’s got herself a NEW chore around the house!!!
