    I wish I had your grocery prices. Up here, Target is cheaper than Aldi and most chain grocery stores are cheaper than Aldi. A gallon of skim milk is $2.13; dozen eggs $1.49 and wheat crackers $1.79 as examples..

  • Samantha says:

    Are the sour cream enchiladas with chicken?

    • Gretchen says:

      They are with ground beef (but I used ground venison from our freezer). I hope that helps! – Gretchen, MSM Team
