Tin Foil Dinners

This is our all time favorite meal in our house. Simple, quick and so Yummy!! We often make these ahead of time to take up camping, or just take supplies to make up at the camp ground. They are 1000 times better on a camp fire!

1 lb of hamburger patties (or ground hamburger formed into patties)
1 can of corn (or 1/2 bag frozen corn)
Half of an onion
4 potatoes(cut into cubes)
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope onion soup mix
tin foil
(You can pretty much add whatever you want to these, if we have carrots, I add them. Play around, they are very versatile.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Tear off 4 pieces of tin foil about a foot to a foot and a half long. Spray each with non stick spray.
Layer in each piece of foil:
hamburger patty
1 potato
1/4 of the onion soup packet
spoon full of butter
season to your liking. I use salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil.

Fold into a little bundle.

Repeat for the other 3.

I put them on a cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour.

You, my friend, will not be sorry!


  1. I love doing this. Something I learned in Girl Scouts, many moons ago! lol And your right... just something better about it when you cook it outside.

    Love the new blog header! *hugs*


  2. Great idea! And I love that it is a meal that my 13 yr old son could put together by himself.

  3. Debbie- I learned from my boy scout cousins haha! And thank you, I'm still trying to decide if I like it...

  4. jskell911- they are awesome, the flavor is so yummy. If you try them let me know!

  5. This sounds really yummy. My husband is picky, but I think he'd be willing to try this one. Thanks for sharing!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
