I love popcorn - all types of flavors. You can sprinkle with cheese, onion/garlic powder/salt, cover with chocolate, sprinkle dry ranch dressing mix, add all types of herbs or spices, the list goes on and on. Making popcorn from scratch is easy and cheap. A good heavy pan, a little oil (I love bacon grease) and popcorn - cover and pop.
Top with any type of topping desired.
I am an apple and peanut butter girl. It truly is my favorite way to eat an apple. My second favorite way is peanut butter sandwich with thin slices of apple, pear, or banana on it. I like mine on toast to give it a bit more stability. Seriously, give this a try - it is so yummy.
Homemade CHOCOLATE SYRUP
3/4 C cocoa powder
1 1/4 C water
1 1 /2 C sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt
Use a good size pan, as mixture expands when cooking. Place cocoa, sugar, water and salt in pan. Whisk and heat till melted. Boil 1 - 2 minutes. Add vanilla after boil. This will appear runny and thin.
It thickens as it cools. Place in a jar and refrigerate. Great for ice cream, milk, whatever you use Hershey's for.
Tastes just like Hershey and is cheap and easy to make. You know exactly what is in it!
BAKED POTATO ROUNDS
Preheat oven 350*
Slice 3-4 potatoes about 1/4" thick. Place in hot water and boil for about 3 - 4 minutes. Remove and pat dry.
Place on a lined baking pan - top each slice with a couple types of shredded cheese, bacon bits, ext. Bake up to 13 - 15 minutes.
Top with sour cream, chopped chives, whatever you have on hand.
These are so good!!!!!!!
Use whatever you have on hand. I can see topped with chili, taco meat, any leftovers, chopped pepperoni, or anything you would put on a baked potato.
I love these - easy, frugal and sooooooo good.
Make a batch of your normal pancake batter and place in a squirt bottle. Fry up a bunch of bacon - crispy.
On your griddle squirt a little batter in a long narrow band - top with a piece of bacon and add a bit more batter. Cook pancakes as usual.
These are great for breakfast and make it kind of fun. They are also good for a quick bite for eating on the go!
Easy for kids as well - they eat with their fingers!
There you go. A few fun, frugal and tasty bites. Hope this gives you some new ideas and ways to change things up a little.
