Your Friday Giggle…


I’ve been working both jobs this week and I’m running a little low on energy. Pulling together any sort of dinner at home is a step up from going out and I succeeded every night this week (even though a grilled chicken soft taco from Taco Bell was calling my name).

Since we used our grocery money last week to fix some electrical work, I made remarkably cheap dinners this week including… Hamburger Helper with turkey.

Ground turkey meat was on sale for $3.50 and Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff was $1. We stretched 3 meals out of that $4.50. Please do me a favor and… don’t tell my mother I used Hamburger Helper.

As I stirred the turkey and read the box, I laughed over the ‘Clint’s Crop Shop’ website information printed on the back. HamburgerHelper.com allows you to upload your photo with a Clint Bowyer photo. I have no idea who Clint Bowyer is – but my nephew is a huge NASCAR fan.

Sure I’m tired and sure the meal selection wasn’t that great this week but we ate for 75 cents a serving AND… I got a good laugh.

Here’s for you Gage. Auntie Bekah is best friends with Clint Bowyer… and apparently Hamburger Helper gloves.

    Wow! 3 meals from that? Kudos to you! I’m not normally a big fan of Hamburger Helper, but somehow if you add a 1/2 cup of sour cream…yum, delicious!

    haha! Love the picture! Read this on my BB, but had to pull it up on line so I could see the picture 🙂

    Do you think blogging about your choices helps keep you on the straight and narrow? I think I would have been down at Taco Bell just hoping I didn’t get caught!

    Congrats on sticking to your budget!

    Lovin’ the photo! You know we’ll be trying it!

    I need to try every meal for a week @ 75 cents, that would be a great challenge!!!!

    I make a lot of Hamburger Helper because I use the leftovers for lunch. It cuts down my lunch budget immensely. I do the same with Tuna Helper. My daughter hates it, so I don’t fear it being eaten up by the end of the week.

    That’s hilarious! I am so making one of those photos for my boys : ) Hamburger Helper, good for saving money and good for a laugh. Can’t beat that!

So, what do you think ?
