Talapia with Buttery Crumb Topping

This is my 'Almost' Frugal supper tonight.  I was able to get Talapia  for 5.99 for a 2lb bag of frozen fillets.  With my girls gone tonight, I'm only cooking four of the them.  I'm matching this meal  up with fresh zucchini and yellow squash that I threw in a can of diced tomatoes.  YUMMY!

To make the squash, I just chopped them up into slices.  I added olive oil and basil to a skillet.  I put in a chopped onion first, and cooked them about 5 minutes. Then I added the squash.  Right before it was done, I added a can of diced tomatoes. 

I paired this meal with Minute Rice Ready Rice, Brown rice.  Precooked rice that cooks in the microwave for 1 minute.  Just add butter! 


Have a great night!!

Impossibly EASY Cheeseburger pie

OMG  I have taken an extended break from blogging, I don't know why! 
Things have gotten pretty crazy here, school starts for us in one week, soccer has started, cheerleading has started, and my fall mind loss has started.  SO I need to keep my meals FRUGAL and EASY.  Anything that requires me to use too many ingredients and have too many steps, I just don't have time for right now.  SO here is one of my favorites, and my old stand bys.  (Note to self: I'm out of Bisquick! Make sure I put some on the grocery list this week!)

Bisquick recipes are great, they use minimal ingredients, and are usually fairly cheap to prepare.  This one I changed just a bit, I added some green peppers when my meat was browing, and then I threw  a can of diced tomatoes  just before it finished.
Click this link:

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef

1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

1/2 cup Original Bisquick® mix

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1.Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.

2.In 10-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in salt. Spread in pie plate. Sprinkle with cheese.

3.In small bowl, stir remaining ingredients with fork or wire whisk until blended. Pour into pie plate.

4.Bake about 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Enjoy and have a great night!

Its time! 

I am finally listing some things on eBay.  My husband expects me to get a 'real job' next month once all 3 kids are in school full time, I really don't want to.  I'm hoping that I can make some money this way, and possibly, if this goes well, sell for others too.   Back 'in the day', I used to be a very avid eBay buyer and seller, I have gotten out of that quite a bit and literally haven't used eBay in over a year. 

I've been trying to get my basement cleaned out, and realize I'm sitting on SO much money down there with my children's outgrown clothes.  they are taking up SO much room, and its ridiculous  that they are just sitting there with no use.  If I sold them and got them out of here, its a win-win.  I've just got to do it.

I spent yesterday taking pictures, and uploading  so now I'm looking forward to spending today getting everything listed and launched.  Here's hoping to big sales and lots of money! My seller name is Sugar*Spice*puppydogtail so look for me.  I have 100% positive feedback,  and do my best to make sure everything is accurately described.   If you are looking for something specific, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Have a great day, and Happy Ebaying!!
