Storage Food - Broccoli Cheese Soup

Many out there buy food storage items and then toss them or give them away when they restock their almost expired products.
As a person who has lived off of food storage before, I have learned many ways to turn drab into fab!

For those cooking out of food storage 
This is a good time to use other "Food storage foods"
Large Canned chicken 
half can be used with this and other other half put off to the side for Chicken Salad Sandwhiches.
Also this is a good recipe to dump in a ton of mixed frozen veggies.

Mix soup following directions
add in
meat of choice
veggies of choice
Cook in crock pot on low 8 hours or high 2 1/2 hours

Served for my hubby
with fresh bread and grated cheese
grated pepper to taste

Mine served with
grated cheese
fresh ground pepper to taste

Food storage is versatile, tasty and easy to use.
Never be afraid to experiment!

Training Table

Training Table is one of the best burger businesses in Utah
It would make number one on everyone's board if they served Alcohol.
Since my friends and I don't drink we don't care.

The food is great
and its ALWAYS the same great quality!

The bread flaky and soft
The bacon crispy
each ingredient fresh
My burger of choice is the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger

To keep costs down, you bus your own table and get your food 
from the main window after ordering 
from a phone by your table.

I love this - conversations are always private
The building always clean
and on mothers day when all other restaurants are packed this one stands empty.
We believe that its because Mothers shouldn't wait on themselves, but that's what my hubby does ;)

***** Stars - if you ever have a chance to eat here - do it!

#2 in the country for best burgers - I think I know what I'm talking about!

P.S Crown Burger is good - will need to post pictures of their food as well next time we eat there!

Comfort food - Chili & Hotdogs

Rinse black beans

 cook on high in crock pot for at least one hour

Add cheese soup mixed with 3/4 C milk

Serve over wheat bread

Is it gourmet food?
Is it cooked right?

When your cooking on a budget you can still take ordinary cheap foods and make a decent tasting meal.

White Sauce Tuna over Rice

Melt Butter
Then slowly add in the same amount of flour

So that the first half of the milk goes in like this, when it starts to turn 
runny kick the heat up from low to midhigh
stirring constantly.

After it boils and starts to thicken
add Tuna,
Salt and Pepper.

Then serve over cooked rice
I like to pair it with peas.

Creamy Chicken

Cook low 8 hours or high 4 hours
Then one more hour on high after adding in the last two ingredients

5 frozen chicken breasts
1 1/2 c. salsa
2 cans cream of chicken soup (any cream soup I used celery)
2 1/2 Tblsp. taco seasoning
1 tsp. bottled lime juice (I used one whole lime)

add after cooking
1 Tblsp. butter (mine sans the butter)
1/2 c. sour cream

This can be served over rice, over buns like a chicken sloppy joe or if you substituted one can of soup for a cheese soup (like Nacho Cheese) this can be served over tortillas. 

I found this recipe via Faith & Daisies via Jamie Cooks It Up!

One served it over tortillas while the other served it over tacos adding cheese, lettuce and tomatoes to it.

Very versatile base dish that can be transformed into many things

Preserved Limes
