It’s Beef time in OMAHA! A couple of different places have hamburger on sale at a great price.  Time to stock up!  Check out the rest of this week’s deals.

Main Dishes

  • Italian Chicken Strips – I haven’t made these yet, but I’m gonna!  Looks like an easy to way to make homemade chicken strips and she includes freezer directions!  Sign me up!
  • Slow Cooker Buffalo Drumsticks – I made these again this past weekend and remembered how good they were!  Even my 2 year old will eat them (as long as I don’t put more buffalo sauce on his before roasting.)
  • Taco Salad – I don’t really have a recipe for this, but I usually just toss chopped lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and taco meat (all that hamburger was on sale last week) into a big bowl.  Then I break up some tortilla chips and mix it all together.  I like mine with Ranch dressing.  Others like it with salsa!  It’s a family friendly way of doing tacos if you have youngins that can’t make their own tacos.
  • Pizzadilla – This is what would happen if a pizza and a quesadilla had a baby.  Tastiness!
  • Chicken Tacos – Since this is a slow cooker meal, it also won’t heat up your house.  Serve it on a hot day!

The following is one of my favorite meals that I just don’t remember to make often.  Which is a shame because as yummy as it is Day One, it makes ROCK STAR leftovers.  There’s just something about spaghetti sauce that always makes things taste better the next day.


Sausage Lasagna Rolls

Servings 4


  • 1 lb sausage, cooked, crumbled, and drained (I use Jimmy Dean brand. You can use as spicy as you want.)
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ½ - ¾ green pepper, diced
  • 26 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 12 lasagna noodles
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain. Keep warmish.
  • Meanwhile, brown meat with onion and green pepper. Drain.
  • Put meat, onion and green pepper back in the pan. Add cream cheese on low heat until cheese melts.
  • Spread ½ the sauce in a 9×13 pan.
  • Lay one noodle flat and spoon some of the mixture in the middle of the lasagna noodle. Carefully roll up the noodle and place in baking dish. Repeat with the rest of the noodles.
  • Pour rest of the sauce over top of rolls, top with cheese.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes.


Freezer instructions: These also freeze really well. Just freeze before baking. Then when ready to make, either defrost during the frig for a day or plan on at least doubling the baking time.

    I was thinking of using this for a meal trade group I’m a part of… Would you just freeze the rolls in a ziploc and then add the sauce & mozzarella after you freeze? Or is there a better way you would suggest without sending a baking dish along?

      You can buy the disposable tin casserole dishes at the dollar store. They might fall apart in individual rolls in a ziploc. I’ve never tried that.

    Great idea! I hadn’t thought of the tin ones 🙂
