Budget Friendly Tip of the Week
It seems the underlying theme this month on the blogs I follow is budget so I plan to post a budget-friendly tip or two each week. This week's tip came to mind as I was making dinner last night. I regularly purchase pork tenderloin from Costco in packages of 5 or 6 for around $20 which means I have 5 or 6 dinners for around $5 a piece plus veggies. I used one in a stir-fry and realized that was an awful lot of meat for 3 of us. So my tip is - next time I purchase the pack I'll cut two in half before freezing them and use these in my stirfries instead (BONUS TIME-SAVING TIP: slice the loins in half lengthwise then slice the halves into strips before freezing to save on prep time later).
