I’ve been really good about menu planning. Every Sunday I spend a good chunk of the day prepping and cooking for the week. Its become a lovely little ritual to starting the week! When i was on the road over the weekend, I had very few options when it came to prepping for the week. And needed to get some groceries ASAP.
I had just happen to be in Walmart… cuz my parents buy cereal like theres going to be a nuclear holocaust and while cruising the aisles trying to avoid them with their 3 shopping carts of cereal I recalled a Hungry Girl staple that would be cost efficient and stable during a 3 hour car ride.
DAN GOOD CHILI.(because i prepared this recipe almost exactly the way its listed on the website, i will not be re-posting the recipe)
I purchased all the ingredients and hit the road. I spent $5 on this recipe… some stuff was already waiting for me at home. But if you’re in a bind this cooks up quickly and cheaply.
Sauteed the pepper, onion and garlic for several minutes. It smelled so good.! then I added the mushrooms.
And all the beans, corn and stirred it up. I added the chili powder and then poured in the crushed tomatoes.
Whoa. this was great. Its like Pantry chili! cuz most of the stuff is from the pantry! der.
This isnt a very exciting recipe… but i wanted to share my menu planning success from the road.
Got any great no fuss recipes???
