I went shopping on Saturday and I went a bit overboard. I’m not always able to buy much more than chicken and ground beef, but this time I picked up some really nice finds in the meat and seafood departments, thanks to the weekly sales and manager’s specials at Kroger.
So, here’s a list of meat that I purchased:
2 Sirloin Tips, approx. 4 lbs. each – on sale (To be used for steaks, pot roast, beef tips, stew)
1 Small sirloin tip (manager’s special)
2-1/2 lb. chuck roast (another manager’s special)
14 thin boneless pork loin chops (family size package for 2 nights)
14 whole chicken wings (I split them for Buffalo wings)
2 lbs ground beef (plus I already had 2-3 lbs. in the freezer)
2 racks of pork back ribs – on sale
1-1/2 lbs fresh cod fish filets – on sale
10 sweet Italian sausage links (2 nights) – Kroger brand
Beef hot dogs – Ball Park on sale
I didn’t buy chicken because I have a freezer full.
Following is a draft of meals that I will make in the next two weeks, plus the links to the recipes that I used/will use:
- My Mother’s Pork Loin Chops Simmered in Beef Gravy – http://susans-musings.com/my-mothers-pork-loin-chops-simmered-in-beef-gravy
- This one of my family’s favorites. I make these every other week for my son. When I say we’re having pork chops, he asks if they’re his pork chops or dad’s, who prefers my From Stove to Oven Baked Pork Chops. I like them both.
