Stumbled across your website – Love it!
I don’t know where you’re located but in in my part of the country (Texas), I shop
at HEB. They currently have pork loin on sale – huge pork loins 7# and up! – for
$1.00 per #. I got one at $7.04, cut in 1/2, slow roasted one piece for pulled
pork sammies. Including the buns, bbq sauce and chips, it fed 6 (3 adults, 2
sammies each and 3 kids 1 sammie each) for $6.30! After reading a few posts
from your site, I’m going back today to buy a few more to cut up and freeze.
Thanks for the ideas and encouragement!

I found your site while looking for…you guessed it, “meals under $5.00″. My wife and I recently looked at what we were spending on food an it was silly. Most of the meals look better and cheaper that what we were eating before. Great job!
