The Meal Planner


I found pork shoulder roasts on sale a couple weeks ago for $1 a pound! I challenged myself to see if I could slow roast the pork and then stretch it to last all week. BUT...the meals have to be totally different each night and taste delicious. That was my challenge, now here's the meal plan:

Day 1: Slow Roasted Pork Shoulder Roast with Mashed Potatoes and Carrots


Day 2: Cuban Sandwiches with Salad


Day 3: Salsa Verde Mexican Stew


Day 4: Hoisin & Ginger Pork Wraps with Crunchy Peanut Slaw


Day 5: Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Creamy Coleslaw


*Stay tuned this week for the recipes.

    I totally need to try this! I've already spent all but $5o of this month's grocery budget (crazy I know, don't ask!) so I need to be especially thrifty and use what we have.


  3. Trish - yes I do!! Please email it to me kindrabirss[AT]hotmail[DOT]com.

    Carla - I totally know what you mean...last month we went WAY over budget. This month I'm trying to salvage anything I can :)


  4. Nice website. I can barely find the time to plan my own meals but writing about them, wow. The pork looks yummy btw. Not sure what tools you use to meal plan but you may wan to try out plantoeat.com. They don't provide meal plans but I really like how you can add your own recipes and make your own meal plans and shopping lists. You can also share all your stuff like facebook. Anyway, thanks for sharing your plans. Very helpful!
