Homemade Ground Meat

Right after Christmas we got a really really good deal
on a Kitchen Aid Mixer through Bradsdeals.

Pretty isn't it!

 We bought the mixer from Kohl's and got $70 in Kohl's cash. 
We bought this.

Now we can buy some big blocks of cheese and grate our own.  
OR buy some meat and grind our own hamburger.

So we did!  We bought a 3 and a
 half pound roast and made this!
It was very easy.

We got 4 packs of 3/4 pounds of hamburger and 2 1/4 lb. patties.

Left-Over Roast Salad

When you have some leftover beef roast and wonder just what to do with it  - make a salad.  It was warm here over the weekend and I was in the mood for a salad.  I never seem to want salad when it's chilly.  I used warmed up leftover roast beef, half of a sweet onion, sauteed in Olive oil; 3 small tomatoes, chopped; baby lettuce; a handful of cherry sized fresh mozzarella balls, chopped and balsamic vinaigrette.  I topped it off with a grind of Pink Himalayan Salt.
