Fast & Thrifty Thursday

Somedays you've just got to get things done fast (and cheap).  Today was one of those days.  First up:  dinner.  My kids love Cheeseburger Biscuits (that's what we call 'em).

Step one:  a can of biscuits placed in a greased muffin tin ($ 0.64)

Step two:  top with 1/2 lb. browned, ground beef and some shredded cheese ($2.85)

Step three:  bake at 400 for 9 minutes or until biscuits are completely baked

Serve with barbeque sauce and steamed veggies ($1.20)

Not for the most sophisticated of pallets, but it sure beats beef-a-roni for the second time this week!  And adds up to be just $1.18 a person.

I've also been peaking around the internet for designer pillowcases.  Holy cow!  I should be selling these babies!  Here are two that I made with just over a yard (each) in 20 minutes.

I plan on making several sets that match each other (these obviously don't).  I ♥ eclectic bedding!

And because my day isn't busy enough, the little guy is feeling sick.  He sat on the floor by the couch the entire time I was cooking dinner and doing dishes but has otherwise insisted on being held all afternoon.  I hope he sleeps well tonight.  Looks like nothing is going to get done until bedtime!

We've made this dish and it is quick, yummy and cheap. It is one of my husband's favorites.

Sorry the little guy is sick!!! I love the hambergers!! My kids are getting into the stage where they want to cook, and this is something so simple that they could do!! We will have to make it soon!

I love your pillowcases! I am also a fan of eclectic bedding :-) I definitely want to make more, just don't know if I can justify the expense (not that expense always matters, but I'm trying to be thriftier and such)
