Buns, Burgers and the $5.00 challenge..

No crockpot news today, though I'm making crockpot chili tomorrow, I think. I made homemade rolls using my bread machine to make the dough. The recipe I used was the dinner roll recipe from Betty Crocker's Bread Machine Cookbook

Then we decided to make homemade burgers, ground beef, dash of salt and pepper along with a dash of worcestershire sauce. Cooked on our little inside grill. and served with cheese, tomato and BBQ Sauce on a homemade roll. AMAZING!

On to the $5.00 challenge, so my hubby and I have decided to see if for the month of January we can eat meals whether in the house or at restaurants for no more than $5.00 for both our meals. Mostly that has involved eating in, and fast food lol. It's amazing what you can get on a dollar menu, even salads and fruit/yoghurt parfaits. We tried a buck a scoop Chinese, which doesn't tasted as horrid as I thought it sounded. =) For $4.47, we got rice, potatoes and two different types of chicken. I think the chicken was honey chicken and sesame chicken.

Aside from seeing how much money we'll save, we also want to see if its possible to stick to that sort of price range and lose weight.


  1. I made crockpot chili today :) I love the smell of fresh baked bread. I hope you keep us up dated on the $5 challenge I'd love to see how it goes.

  2. There is nothing better than the smell of fresh bread. mmm

    And I'll try to keep up with updating the $5.00 challenge, its a lot of fun so far lol
