Bill's Brunswick Stew Ingredients:

  • 1 large pot

  • 1 lg. can boneless white chicken breast w/water (near the tuna fish)

  • 2 cans Castleberry's Pork BBQ (my dad says it must be Castleberry's)

  • 1 can cream corn

  • 1 can whole kernel sweet corn

  • 1 can small green lima beans

  • 1 can sliced white potatoes

  • 1 lg can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 sweet onion

  • Saltine crackers

  • Tabasco sauce

  • Worcestershire Sauce

  • Butter

Sauteed 1/2 sweet onion in oil, 1 tbsp butter, and a touch of Worcestershire Sauce in the large pot you will use for cooking.

Once onion is ready add in can goods (do not drain any of them except for the sliced potatoes) Stir in ingredients on Medium heat. Add 1/2 cup of water and stir well. Place lid on pot and Simmer for about 30 minutes - stir often. Add salt, pepper, and Tabasco to taste. Serve with Saltines and enjoy on a cold winter day!!!!!!Love you Frugal Foodie!!!


Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread (Or Cookies!)

Makes 3 (9×5″) loaves (1 loaf= about 8 Jumbo Cookies)

  • 3 cups sugar

  • 1 T ground nutmeg

  • 1–15 oz can pumpkin puree

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2/3 cup water

  • 1 cup miniature semi-sweet chips (don’t add in until after you stir the flour mix well.)

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

  • 3 1/2 cups flour

  • 1 T ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour three 9×5″ loaf pans. Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl; set aside. In large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil,water, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in the dry ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips, and nuts, if desired. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks before removing from pans.

I love, love, love this bread. I usually use more chips than it says and never have used nuts.

One of my favorite parts about Halloween is carving pumpkins. However, my least favorite thing to do when carving pumpkins is scooping out all of the insides… even though I find it mushy and gross, inside I find one of the best kept secret treats of Halloween: Pumpkin Seeds

1) Separate the seeds of a freshly carved pumpkin from any of the mushy inside.

2) Heat the oven to 350

3) Put the seeds on a paper towel and let them dry for a few minutes.

4) Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

5) Put the seeds on the baking sheet in a single layer. Then sprinkle the seeds with salt, garlic salt, onion powder, seasoned salt or any other spice you desire. ** Personally, I like salt and garlic salt to keep all those witches and warlocks away…

6) Cook the seeds for 10 to 20 minutes, or until brown and slightly crisp, turning once.

There you have it! A yummy and healthy snack perfect for fall
