Sweet Potato Chili

Oh my wow, you guys. I seriously have 3 recipes tested, approved, and photographed ready to share here with you. I swear to you I made this Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili for dinner TONIGHT! I honestly could not wait to share the recipe with you.

I was a tiny bit strategic in dinner tonight since Paul hates sweet potatoes and he has been out at a meeting over dinner. I switched our menu plan around a little bit since the boys and I could eat sweet potatoes any day of the week. I used to share my weekly menu plans with you all, but I found that I like to have a good mix of homemade dinners, frozen dinners that I stock up on at our local grocery outlet, and - yes - eating out. My family's favorite grocery store frozen dinners are:
  • Pierogies w/veggies
  • Frozen pizza
  • Tortellini or Ravioli with sauce and garlic bread
  • Fish filets w/veggies, or for making fish tacos
  • Breaded chicken strips or chicken patties on rolls with cheese

I've found lately with our family of 5, this is what works best for us. I plan on 7 different dinners during the week, make a list and shop for the ingredients we need for those dinners, and I make what I feel like making on any particular night. Honestly, that's my style completely. I like to plan, but I definitely need a level of flexibility.

So if you've been failing at the menu plan thing lately, give my method a try! Jot down 5 - 7 dinners that you'd like to make this week - being sure to incorporate a few frozen dinner favorites. This also helps me to take advantage of whatever sale is going on or whatever I spot super cheap at our grocery outlet or Aldi.
