WFD: Friday 8-5-11

Friday's night dinner was homemade chili, which cost less than $9.00 to make for an entire stockpot full. This fed four adults with plenty leftover for other meals like taco salad  or loaded baked potatoes. 

Homemade Chili
2 pounds ground chuck - $4.00
2 onions - 50 cents
Beans - 2.00
Spices including garlic - less than 1.00
Can of tomatoes with green chilies - 85 cents
Can of tomato paste - 40 cents
Bowl of homegrown diced tomatoes - Free
Total Cost:  $8.75

I didn't include the cost of the corn chips, cheese, or sour cream because they were all part of other meals I've already calculated the price for, so in other words they didn't cost me anything for this meal. 

What's for dinner at your house today?
