Cincinnati Chili and a Virtual Bake Sale

Cooking During Stolen Moments is hosting a Virtual Bake Sale today! They are a selling an ebook filled with recipes from the Virtual Great American Bake Sale participants (I am one of them!!). The books are now available for a donation of your choosing and all of the proceeds will go to Share Our Strength. So stop by and help to stop hunger today!!

Now, that I have helped feed needy families around the country, I need to feed my family. I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners .

Ground beef is on sale at Pick N Save this week for $1.99/lb. (normally $2.99/lb.) So grab some up! I did and it is showing up on the menu in Cincinnati Chili:-)

Notice I didn't say "my menu"; I said "the menu". That's because this week, in honor of his birthday, my husband Jeff is off of work and he is doing the cooking:-)

Here is what he is serving this week:

Monday: Eating out for Iron Cupcke: Milwaukee's Wine Challenge.

Tuesday: Cincinnati Chili (see recipe below)

Wednesday: Baked Chicken

Thursday: Eating out again for a trip to Madison to visit my older daughter in college.

Friday: BBQ Ribs
