    Default saving $ & budgeting


    I use a George Forman a lot; I see bunchs of them at Goodwill &

    Salvation Army; wait to get one that is like new; it is supposed to

    have a drip tray to catch the grease which is sometimes missing which

    may be the reason it is there but no big deal; simply put a plate or

    saucer under it to catch the grease; sometimes they even have 2 sides

    one for meat & one 4 veggies; also saw some Hamilton Beach steam &

    grill & another one by someone else; I am sure they basically all

    work the same way or thereabouts; anyway folks; the Foreman is

    fantastic; it GRILLS just like an expensive restaurant does; it cooks

    from both sides; and the flavor is out of this world; better

    hambergers in it than you get eating out at any fast food joint;

    premake your patties ahead of time; tupperware used to have them

    available; then freeze, & when grandkids whatever come it's a piece

    of cake for them to make their own; and they LOVE it; don't even want

    fast food anymore! It saves $, saves energy & is out of this world

    delicious! Also, use your crockpot during summer; you can even start

    it at night, & wake up & have it for breakfast & then have your

    breakfast at night! If I am going to make chicken I will bake it

    early AM & have for breakfast; & then make enough for several meals;

    we used to have a french fry press to that you put a potato into it;

    & it made the fries; & making your own fries or potato chips is FAR

    cheaper than buying them! You can make them up ahead of time when

    potatoes are cheap & freeze to take out & have just like fast food

    only at YOUR house & YOU get the $ instead of giving it to someone

    else! I prefer Lawry's seasoned salt on my fries anyway; pretty sad


    when lots of folks go to MacDonald's & there is NOTHING there that is

    worth ordering in my opinion; if I can make a far better dinner at

    home, I do it; don't miss not eating out at all! (but this way I can

    afford to buy steaks when they have them on sale for $4.99 a lb or

    less!) I save the $ & get & then have $5 steak dinner with pototo &

    salad & I feel blessed to get a good ribeye dinner for that amount!

    I wasn't aware that you could freeze potatoes--could you explain how you do this? Any precooking involved? Thank you. Sheri

    I know you must blanche the potatoes first. You can look up online how to blanche them.
