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.

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

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

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

    1. 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.

  3. 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.

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

  4. The homemade chilli looks so tasty and yum.

  5. Chili looked awesome and its so great to use up cans that you got for such great deals!!
