Not a recipie, but instead of coca-cola I've used PROPEL brand flavored water. (it's made with sucrose syrup=splenda). The orange is very good with beef & lemon very good with chicken.

Also I have a small 2 quart crockpot that has High, low & warm. It's perfect on warm for serving soup, chilli, warm dips & sauces.

It's also the perfect size doe 1 or 2 small pork tenderloins. Aldi often has 1 1/3- 1 1/2 pound ones for abt $5-$6. I've used the pepper corn ones. Just cut the end of the bag pour the whole thin in, fill the bag half way with water & add that as well. Cook on Low for sevreal hours ..... Very yummy!

37  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: 101 things you can do with ground meat???? on: January 18, 2006 10:00:33 AM
This souds odd... but I really like.
Brown he meat in a skiliet, & set on paper towel to drain. Pour any grease out of pan. Thrown in fresh spinish stir to wilt, add a little squirt of mustard, pinch of salt, & peper to taste. stir & add meat back in.
Very yummy ....even petter if yiou add a little grated Parm. Stuff in a pita or roll in a tortilla.
Lot sof thongs you can add to this: add chopped onion & or garlic to the meat while you cook it. Any seasonng or herbs you like.
Also great to add frozen peas to last coiple mins of cook time of the meat.

Same recipe is also rally good if you substitute turkey hot dogs or tofu for the meat.


I like to make small meatballs & bake them n teh oven after i have bron them on a skillet. These are nice added to simple soups (even just to a can of tomtoe soup). Freeze in small portions.

I like to add diced dried fruit to these.   My mom used to make a similar thing with popcorn or puffed rice cereal, margarine, marshmellow, a spoonfull of peanut butter (melted witht eh marshmellow & margarine) some rasins & chopped dried appricots.
It's a good way to get fruit into picky eaters too

Smoothies!   May have been said arleady need to go through all these lisitngs.

Yougurt, fruit & ice in blender.  skip the yogurt for a ligther one. Or add a little milk or halk & halk instead of yourgurt.

Aldi & Save a lot have been metioned. Our Doller Tree has dairy & freeze cases now too,  so does Big Lots. Just buy one of something to try then stock up if it was good!
Also if you get the flyers for Rite-Aid & Walgreens they often have coupns n the flyers that a re very good prices for stapels. (Campbells soup, Canned fruit, Jello, Ramen, etc....)

Choose one or two colors of sharpie & color splotches then spray with rubbing alcohol, that cause it to bleed. let it sit for a bit the rinse with cold water till it runs clear. Then throw the pants int eh dryer to set color.

Paint a tire & roll over jeans, also cool with sneaker treads.
