Ok, I buy meat in bulk and I break it down into smaller portions to save money. It gets expensive feeding a family of five on one income. So my youngest has expressed his disdain that we still have leftovers from Christmas, lol. His exact words were “Those leftovers have been hanging around forever”. So last night I made backed Ziti. I did the usual bowl the noodles make the sauce (I blogged about how I make my cheap sauce taste homemade). I realized I had some ground beef to use so I browned that and used the leftover cheese from my macaroni and cheese from Christmas. Viola dinner is served, my baked ziti with everything but the kitchen sink. A bowl of this with a side of Texas Toast (was on sale with a two dollar coupon) happy kid.
