    lecale,

    I can see how you would go your own way with respect to dinner.....I bursted out laughing because my dad cooks like that "Experiemental Cooking" is what he calls it, this & that, a can of this & that and ta dah....It's like what the hell is that and it "normally looks really gross but smells awesome" lol.

You can't beat ground beef for cheap though and since it is something we just have to have on hand I feel no guilt in stocking at the same level (smaller packs though).

    Yesterday I came home and dh had made one of his man creations: about 16 cups of chili made from ground beef and everything that comes from a can. Canned tomatoes, two kinds of sauce, two kinds of mushrooms, french cut green beans (?), pork and beans, you name it, if you could buy it in a can, it was in there. So I had pea soup. We still have pork roast kicking around and there are ingredients for a bunch of other meals...I am glad dh has chili and some steaks to keep him occupied because I have plans involving beans and spinach that he will not eat. It looks like we are on separate paths with our meals for a few weeks again, though.

    I agree lunch meat is absurd in cost and if from the deli it doesn't last long (3-4 days max and then it's no good), we do the same cook roast and or use leftover meats for lunch sandwiches ++++ I think it's way more healty anyways and YUMMY!

So much cheaper, if I buy meat and buns just for me to make sandwiches 4 days a week (I usually give myself a treat once a week of like nachos and dip or leftovers) it is around $7.00 to $10.00 and that is just lunch for me.
