Better than Wendy’s Fast Food and Only {.50 cents A serving )

November 9, 2019

everybody and welcome it’s Monday I hope
you had a great weekend my weekend was real quiet and a real peaceful which was
great I didn’t have a whole lot to do so today I’m working on my meal plans and
I’m gonna work on what I’m making this week
I love making meal plans it takes a lot of stress off of wondering what you’re
gonna eat for the week today for lunch we are going to have something that is
only 50 cents of serving and for me it’s only 25 cents but I wanted to make sure
I was safe and saying 50 cents of serving now if you’re a person who has a
pantry like I do it’s a lot cheaper than that but I’m working on my meals and I
have my books here and I’ll just show you a little bit of some of the books
that we’re gonna be using this week Irish chef cookbook it’s a neat one
we’re gonna have some tea breads this week I know a lot of you have been
asking you for more baking and this cookbook I got at the thrift store last
week so we’re gonna be using that I have to make some more raisin bread we’re out
of raisin bread and that’s my favorite as you know we’re gonna use out of the
apocalypse this is gonna be for next week so I’m
gonna work on that I have my list of things to do and then I got as a product
review and this was something that was really something I was excited about I
have been turning down product reviews left and right simply because I’m really
not interested and all of those different fancy products but this one
here is called a meal planner life and apples and it’s really cute and I really
like it so hopefully they got back to me in time because I will give you a
description in the description box I’ll let you know about it but it’s really me
and it tells you on the side you can write what you need to buy and then you
can you can write what you want to get and your meals I just thought it’s
adorable I don’t have anything like this now if you have my homemade notebooks
but I thought it’s really cute and I said yeah I’d love to do a product
review on this and I think it’s really great it’s small you can take it in your
purse and go to the grocery store so I really like it I don’t get anything out
of it so you don’t buy it to help me out in any way I just got the product for
free and I thought I’d share it with you guys so let’s get started in our meal
and then I will have a little talk at the end so I have the rice in the rice
cooker while that is cooking we’re gonna make these these things I got these at
the thrift store but somebody said the Dollar Tree actually had these back last
year so what we do is we put the flour tortilla and one of these and we’re
gonna bake it so we’re gonna go ahead and we’re gonna bake them and they’re
gonna be a hard shell made the chili so we’re gonna go ahead and heat that up
now we’re gonna go get some lettuce and some tomatoes and cut that up add some
of the first ingredients so we have some lettuce we have some tomato and then we
have an onion that sprouted so we’re gonna use that onion so the lettuce
isn’t that nice anymore but it’s still okay to eat we just want to make sure we
take off the parts that aren’t so good and then the rest will get to the
chickens so we’re gonna just put our salad we’re
just gonna put our that is part into this bowl now we go ahead and cut up
some Tomatoes adding fresh ingredients to any dish helps to make you dish
tastes so much better and I try to add as many fresh ingredients as I possibly
can this recipe I made based on a meal that was at Wendy’s fast-food restaurant
at one time they had this same meal and it was a salad but it had some chili on
top of it so I decided one day to make something similar all right so we’re going to just put up
two minutes off to the side because we’re gonna add all these on top now I
usually cut my Tomatoes only for what’s needed at the moment these tomatoes were
washed and they also came from this month’s food pantry leftovers alright
there we go now we have this onion so all we got to do is make sure we peel
away all the bad spots see the center the center of it is not too good anymore also the sprout that’s great we’re gonna
cut that up and we’re gonna use that in our meal it’s actually very tasty so
we’re gonna put that in with our lettuce we’re just going to cut around to the
core of the onion so that part of the onion is fine we’re gonna chop this up
we’ll find me now if it was springtime or summer I
would plant this onion but I can’t because it won’t grow anymore in the
season but onion sprouts are amazing so I’m gonna just put that off to the side
as well and then the rest of this stuff goes to the chickens so there you go now
we have all of our fresh toppings that go on top of our chili that we’re making
so I’ll show you in a minute when the flowers your tears are already baked
right so now all we have to do is assemble everything so we have our rice
so we’re gonna put a rice at the bottom now we want to fill these up fairly full and then we’re gonna go ahead and we’re
gonna add a little bit of our chili now this chili I made was chili mac
that’s okay it has a couple noodles in it we’re gonna add some tomatoes and
some onions and some lettuce and we’re gonna add a little bit cheese the only
cheese I have is Parmesan cheese which I knew doesn’t go with it
but that’s what I got and that’s what I’m gonna use and we’ll just put a
little bit of sour cream and there you go it’s a chili and a flower too Tina
that’s baked and I think that is a winner it’s a really good meal even the
children enjoy this kind of meal so I’m going to demonstrate real quickly why I
like bull covers and had a few people ask me about them and why I use them so
this is one of them this one here is I don’t know quite a few months old you
take your hands and you go like this and the warmth of your hands actually makes
your bowl covers stick just like saran wrap see it’s amazing what do I put my
bowl covers on well this is leftover salad that we had today for a meal here
is the leftover rice same thing I put all my leftovers in Bowl covers like
this just use your hands a little bit and it adheres to the side of your bowl
when you’re finished put it in warm sudsy water lay them flat and they will
go right back to their original shape they were in I store them on top of each
other they don’t stick to each other and it’s just like saran wrap so this is why
I love will cover so much now hope you understood this little
demonstration and I hope you give it a try sometime like I said I have a lot of
videos I have one right up above me right now see it right there’s a video
sharing how you can make your own different people ask me if I can use
paraffin wax I don’t know or soybean wax I really don’t know I wouldn’t give that
a try but you could try it beeswax is something that is not toxic
to your food beeswax is actually edible if you want to eat it bad enough it’s
not gonna hurt you so that’s why I go with the beeswax hope you enjoyed the
video I just want to share with you thank you everyone on yesterday’s video
yesterday’s video there was about one minute of no sound and that was not on
my end that was YouTube it’s because of your generosity and making sure that
you’re subscribed to me and making sure your thumbs ups are sticking and making
sure that you’re sharing my channel it’s because of all of your generosity that
is what’s keeping me going and such times like this you know conservative
channels aren’t very popular on this kind of platform but I really want to
thank you guys for everything you’ve done because you guys were the voice and
you guys made your stuff known and heard and I really want to thank you guys for
that because you are the ones that are making a difference in my life and in my
channel take care everyone we’ll see you guys tomorrow
and get ready because what happens if you have some laundry soup that’s over
twenty thirty years old does it still work
oh I wonder I can’t wait to share that video with you bye everybody wait a minute everybody don’t leave yet
it’s time for Fanny’s diary we’re on November the 4th 1943 and Fanny

    Hi Tessie! Love ya! Quick tips: if anyone doesn't have those tortilla pans, they can just flip a cupcake pan over and wedge your tortillas in between the cupcake spaces. Also, we do leftover chili on baked potatoes. Never knew you could use the sprouted green part to eat.

    Your salad bowls look yummy. I love the inadvertent recipe you gave out as well… How to make eggs out of left over lettuce, tomatoes snd onions…. feed it to the chickens. Lol I'm happy to see you use the bowl covers. I've made them as well and love them. It is helping me to reduce the amount of plastic that I use.

  • Reply Julie Wallace November 5, 2019 at 1:40 am

    TIP THIS IS HOW I REFRESH MY LETTUCE. Get a bowl with ice & cold water after you cut the lettuce place it in that ice water. Then let it set in there for as little as 20 minutes or up to an hour while you get your meal together. THEN REMOVE FROM BOWL DRAIN ON PAPER TOWL. It crisp it right up.. GOD BLESS

    Gotta try the baked corn tortilla bowl idea.  I make Ron's chili, in a stock pot which I  freeze in quart containers. It's  used  for pasta sauce by blending in my Vitamix, used for taco filling, chili cheese fries,chili cheese mac, sloppy Joe's, and baked potato topping, 

     It's one of those make ahead food items that one can tweak with added ingredients like mushrooms, steamed broccoli, steamed cubed red potatoes, loads of cheese etc. And yes the beeswax covers work GREAT! And NO paraffin which is a petroleum product does not work well!

    That's a nice festive way to serve chili on a cool day. Cooked a chicken today intending to make a friend some chicken soup for her nasty cold but she is better today.

    How did you figure out the serving costs? I remember learning about that in grade school when we had our bake sale we were required to figure out costs and how much to charge to turn a profit and I guess I wasn’t paying attention. I love that tortilla bowl…we have a Dollar Tree here. I’m definitely going to check them out. Thanks for the share. My dad will just love this. He doesn’t care for rice but I might use something else maybe like potatoes?

    I wonder what kind of covers Grandma Fanny made for the church benches? I used to be a puppeteer. One of the preschools I went to was in a church. A friend took me into the sanctuary to show me the churches pews. The seats were covered in needlepoint handmade by ladies in the church of pictures of Bible stories. What an amazing labor of love that was.

    Love Wendy’s chilli. Craved it when I was pregnant with our son ( who’s now grown) I didn’t help that Wendy’s was across the street from where I was working at the time.

Will your shell hold up without eating it from the baking pan? I always order taco salad when we eat Mexican and it’s the shell that makes it (even though I know it’s fried ?). I love the beeswax covers… I def need to find the video on how to make those.

    Those tortilla bowls are amazing! I will be on the hunt for them at the dollar store. I also make bowl covers and it saves so much money on plastic wrap! And you really should not use other types of wax, as beeswax is naturally antimicrobial and safer to use. The other types of wax are less pliable and tend to fall off in your food.

    More bacon? Well it happens that I made something traditional today with bacon. It's easy and cheap to make 🙂 A tin can of marrowfat peas (slightly more than 1 pound) or fresh cooked ones. 4 medium onions (chopped) 1/2 a pound of (smoked) cubed bacon. Just put some butter in the pan and after that the onions and the bacon. When the onions are getting translucent add the marrowfat peas to it and stir for a a while. It won't take long to get everything hot enough for being served and ofcourse you can add some salt en pepper to it (what suits your taste). We serve it with sliced pickles, some pickled pearl onions, mustard and piccalilly. But ofcourse that is all optional. This comes from the times that the Dutch traveled overseas in big wooden ships and on board there were dryed marrowfat peas, smoked bacon and all kind of pickled things, but besides the sea men, the farmers and the common people loved it too 🙂
