Just a quick note about how I plan my meals and how I ended up with 4 nights of chili in one week.
We do a BIG shopping trip every 3 weeks. I draw up a list for enough meals to feed my family for 21 days. We load all the kids in the car and head on down to the local army fort. We get haircuts for the boys, or at least the three of them with hair, we scout out the BX (that's the base exchange for you civilians), and we go to the commissary. The commissary is the military grocery store. In general, the commissary is cheeper that your standard grocery store. Things like meat and spices are a lot cheeper, fruits and veggies are a little cheeper, and pantry items are about the same ... Generally speeking. So, we do the bulk of our shopping every three weeks and sometimes that ends up with my family getting a healthy dose of chili.
So, here it is, a chili intensive Monday menu plan.
Monday - crunchy baked pork chops
Tuesday - white chicken chili
Wednesday - leftover chili
Thursday - vegetarian chili
Friday - leftover chili
Saturday - skillet carbonara
Sunday -Swiss steak
