Re: Cooking for larger families.
I buy the 20lb bag of rice and serve that as a side. We also stretch Chili by serving it over rice. Beef stew is another staple that will go really far with a $5 cut of meat. I just found dishes that make alot. Some of the family favorites are 'chicken fingers' made out of chicken breasts, curried chicken, chili, lamb/beef stew, black bean burritos, stuffed peppers, pork bbq, and homemade mac and cheese are some of our staples. I'll also make up soups once in a while (a beef bone with meat around it makes a huge pot of soup). I also give my dad the stuff to make jambalaya and meatballs because about $12 worth of those will last about 4 meals!! Oh and my husband eats ALOT!
