Shuffle Saturday: Cheeseburger Soup in Homemade Bread Bowls

Just call me Sarah semi-homemade--minus the matching curtains with the outfit. Who has time for that?

This recipe is SO always, I don't measure (just dump, dash, pinch) when cooking....

It's really an easy recipe...I use the Wisconsin Cheese Soup in the bag at Fareway (local grocery store) from Taste Traditions (frozen soup out of Omaha). While the soup is boiling in the bag, I brown 1.5 lbs of ground beef with diced red onion. Drain the meat, cut up some pre-cooked bacon, add to drained beef/onion.

Dump the boiling pot (plugging the sink to get humidity in the house in the winter), cut open the bag of soup and pour into the already hot pot. Add water and chicken bouillon. Dump the meat/bacon/onion mix in the pot with some pepper. Add shredded cheddar cheese and some frozen hashbrowns.

For the bread bowls: I use Rhodes loaf bread (3 loaves make 7 bread bowls), let them rise, tear them apart and roll them into balls with a little corn meal on them. Bake at 350 for an hour, take them out of the oven, cut a circle with a knife in the top, spoon out the insides (for dipping) once they're cool enough to handle.

Ladle the soup into the bread bowls and enjoy!

Nom, nom, nom.

Toy Thursday: Christmas?


Yes. It is only October.

But as a saver, it's never too early to check your gift stockpile and research gifts. If you're a saver (like me), you know that EBates is a GREAT site to get paid to shop. But sometimes Ebates doesn't offer all of the sites you want to shop from. That's where MyPoints comes in. Click either of these links and get paid to shop.

Buy smart, save money. :)

Make Monday: Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie! Make Your Home Smell Like Fall!

Thank you, Pinterest.

My name is Sarah, and I am a Pinterest addict. Whew. I'm glad I posted that. But being a Pinterest addict, I also tweak things.

I made my home smell and taste like fall. And that is AWESOME.

I took this link and made it my own. Preheat oven to 400.

It says to buy plain Pillsbury dough and make your own rolls Ain't nobody got time for dat!

I bought the Cinnabon Pillsbury rolls at Hy-Vee (and earned .02/gallon for the fuel saver) and used it. I popped the canister (the adult version of the jack in the box) smashed the rolls flat in a greased pie pan and let them sit. I set the cream cheese frosting aside.

I took my Granny Smith Apples (also from Hy-Vee), peeled, cored and sliced them (placing the peels and cores into a pot with water, sprinkled with cinnamon -- free potpourri) and tossed them in cinnamon, granulated sugar, apple pie spice and a dash of lemon peel.

 Mix one cup of flour, one cup of brown sugar and one stick of unsalted (room temp) of butter (ya'll) with your hands.

Put the apples on top of the smashed rolls.
Dump the flour/brown sugar/butter mix on top.

Bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes.

Take it out of the oven, just before the top gets brown, and let it sit on a cooling rack.

Remember the cream cheese frosting?  Knife it out of the container and spread it on the pie. It doesn't matter if it is pretty, it tastes delicious and it won't last long!

And your house...(remember the cores/peels/cinnamon potpourri?) will smell awesome. I have 4 boys, one in pullups and one in diapers. If I could bottle this smell, I would make millions.
