What's on the Dinner Table this Week?

This is what we ate this week:

Sunday: Potato Soup & Grilled Cheese

Monday: Homemade Pizza

Tuesday: Homemade Chili

I brought down my GE electric roaster to make a large portion of homemade chili on Tuesday. I wanted to make enough to last for a few days and some to freeze for later. 


I used up several cans from my pantry including a couple of Crash & Burn items. One 28 ounce can of tomatoes that cost 50¢, and one can of diced chili ready tomatoes for 29¢.


And that was all the cooking I had to do for this week. We ate on the chili for the rest of the week and I even had some to freeze. I love cooking once and eating two, three, or even four times.

I also don't mind eating the same thing several times. :)
It saves so much time and money when we make bigger portions.

Belinda said...

Oh, I agree, Nil. It does save time and money for sure. :)

That looks really good, did you use a Nesco type roaster? Chilli freezes very nicely, for individual meals as needed.

I love cooking once and eating many meals. However, chicken is my favorite thing to cook and freeze. I especially like washing dishes once, especially a crockpot. If I ate chili, it would be made in a large quantity, too.

The homemade chilli looks so tasty and yum.

Thank you, Carol. Yes, I used a Nesco type roaster to make the chili. That's a great idea to freeze them individually. I do that with soup regularly to pack for lunches.

Belinda said...

Oh yes, Linda...having to wash dishes once is great!

Belinda said...

Thank you, Franny & Danny. :)
