Don’t stop believing…. In hamburger helper


You can thank me already for getting this song stuck in your head!

Do you ever have those days when you get home from work, school, or practice and feel like doing absolutely nothing? And just yawn thinking about having to cook something for supper? ME TOO!

This was me just the other day. I was super tired and had zero energy and really didn’t feel like cooking a darn thing. I always try to make something homemade and zero energy really isn’t a factor when it comes to home-making something! So hidden on the very top shelf of my pantry I have a couple of boxes of hamburger helper, beef stroganoff it was. I have become quite fond of Velveeta brand, who can resist the cheese?

Also while in the pantry I grabbed my box of Bisquik, so I could whip up some little drop biscuits. So as usual I had to jam out while cooking… My choice that night? YouTube shuffle, starting with Don’t Stop Believing… You know, don’t stop believing in your cooking ’cause sometimes I worry myself. Cheesy peas were added to our meal at last minute, once again, who can resist cheese?

As everything began to mix together, melt, bake, etc., just as I was about to set the table, another classic jam began to play… Eye of the Tiger. How ironic is that!? I can’t be the only one who jams out to that song… Am I!? It’s like running the last lap in the race, YOU CAN FINISH!!

I was going to take a picture of my plate as I normally do, but I guess it was so good Andy ate all of it! No time to take a picture, so I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it. 😉

As I relate Don’t Stop Believing to the classroom, I can’t help but to think of when I student says, “I can’t do this!!” Sure you can! Don’t stop believing in yourself, success takes hard work, time, and a lot of patience. I just remind them to remain positive, if you’re a negative Nancy about your work, guess what? You’re going to get negative results!

Making dinner out of a box isn’t ideal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own twist and make it even better!

  3. The title of your blog post is sooo great! This is what caught my eye and why I started reading your post, but as I started reading your writing is great as well! I really like how yo compared your cooking experience to the classroom. It is true if you tell yourself you can do something you can, but if you are a negative nancy than you are most likely going to struggle with whatever it is your doing! Great post keep up the great work!! 🙂

  4. I always love reading your blogs they are so relatable and you always have the catchiest titles!! I would have to agree I absolutely love hamburger helper but having a gluten intolerance in our house we don’t have any hidden in the cupboards (probably a good thing)
