I had no pork stockpiled in my freezer so I shopped for a manager's special and was blessed to find one! :)
What's for dinner tonight?
Garlic Pork Chops
Pork $3.25 (OUCH! I used slightly more than the recipe called for.)
olive oil $.20 (again, I used Erin's math)
garlic cloves $.10
Potatoes $.39 (I used Russet.)
milk $.15 (Erin's math)
Green Beans $.89
Total : $5.20
In this recipe, Erin has you marinade the meat in olive oil and garlic in the fridge and then cook it in the same pan. I am all for simplifying. :)
The finished product. Delicious! I had the mashed potatoes in my freezer from a couple weeks ago when I made a double batch. I usually do that when I get potatoes on sale for a good price. All I did was pull them out of the freezer last night and let them thaw in the fridge. I then reheated them on the stove.
