I have spent the entire day in the kitchen cooking enough meals to last our family a whole month.

I’ll tell you all about it next week.

DIG DEEPER


Meal planning eliminates dinnertime stress and overspending. Rather than navigating weeknight meals without a plan, go in with a plan and dinner is served. Simple!

 

But today I wanted to share one of my favorite vegetarian recipes. This is one that I have been tweaking for years.  It is pretty darn delicious, if I do say so myself.  And it is SO easy!  You can make it on the stove, but I prefer throwing it all into the slow cooker and then forgetting about it for the afternoon.

Here is what you need:
1 package vegetarian protein crumbles
1 onion
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
2 cans Rotel tomatoes or 1 jar salsa
1 can tomato sauce
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp cocoa powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon
sour cream & shredded cheese (optional-for topping)

    Hi Ruth!

    This was my first week couponing, I watched your videos on youtube, and I was inspired to do the same and save money for my family. I didn’t do as well as you do, but im still proud of my savings. Today I went out and bought 2oo dollars worth of groceries, and I only had to pay 145. I thought that was good for a first attempt at couponing. Im looking forward to reading more of your blog posts and learning from your expertise! Keep up the great work, your videos are great.

    How funny….I made Veggie Chili today too! So satisfying and easy. We deserve some rest from slaving over a stove and the crockpot is the answered prayer. Enjoy!
