Mostly homemade Mondays

Welcome back to Mostly Homemade Mondays, week three! It's a series for people who are striving for better food and a better lifestyle, but for whatever reason need a helping hand from a pre-made ingredient now and then.
The ground rules:

1) knock yourself out in being creative. Want to share a new recipe? Cool. Want to post a photo of something you made? Rock on with your bad self. Want to talk about a dresser you bought from a thrift store and refurbished? Back that truck up cause that is something I want to see!

2) Some part of your post should be "homemade". While a post on the Hamburger Helper you made last night doesn't seem to cut the bill, making your own casserole from meat and noodles that you didn't make from wheat you grew yourself is something to crow about!

3) If you want to, go ahead and note on your post that you're linking to this series. And if you don't want to? Well, that is no skin off my nuts.

Let's get started!
