I love a bargain! Last Friday I was looking through my coupons and discovered a $5.00 grocery store coupon that was expiring that day. I couldn’t let that go, so I rushed back to the store where pork loins were on sale. After the coupon I paid a little over $3.00 for a 4.5 pound pork loin. On Sunday the pork was converted to meals: New York Speidies, Paprika Pork, and a Mushroom and Pork Skillet Dinner. When I was done I had assembled 10 meals for two and only paid $3 for the protein. Not bad, if I do say so myself. Sunday’s Dinner was the Mushroom and Pork Skillet Dinner.
Meatless Monday I made a fresh summer recipe from the first tomatoes we harvested from the garden, Italian Tomato Pie. We ate it warm on Monday night and I munched on it cold for the rest of the week. It’s good both ways.
Sunday’s labor paid off on Wednesday when we enjoyed our New York Speidies. Speidies were a chilhood favorite when we lived in Binghamton along with our extended family. All you of Conklin descent take a look at this recipe. It’s as close as I’ve been able to come, although I prefer pork over lamb. On the side we enjoyed Slow-Cooked Baked Beans and Squash Casserole
