Empty that freezer..... baby!

Sunday, March 14, 2010

I am doing really well with the whole budget thing. Normally Sunday is the day that hubby and I go to the Butchers and buy our meat. Today we didn't go. I told him that once we had eaten out what was in the freezer, then we will go. Normally our meat bill ranges from $50 right up to $150 for the week. We will eat out of the freezer for the next week.

Here are our eveing meals for the week.

Monday - Florida Pork and Veg
Tuesday - I have a large beef wing rib - not sure yet, still hunting for recipes.
Wedensay - Dinner out
Thursday - Shepherd's Pie
Friday - Left over Pie as Hubby won't be home
Sunday - Creamy Pumpkin Pinenut Pasta (only instead of the penne, I will be using up frozen Latina Raviolli)

Here is the recipe for Florida Pork. I LUUUURVE this recipe!

1 x 30g pack of Continental Spring Vegetable soup mix
2 tsp oil
4 pork loin chops
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
4-6 olives sliced

Heat oil and brown chops.
Drain off oil.
Add combined soup mix, orange juice, and water.
Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, or until pork is cooked.
Serve sprinkled with olives.
