My frugal mind influences a lot of what I buy to cook. Sometimes at the grocery store, I see something where the price is so good that I have to experiment a bit. So it was yesterday when I “swung by” for some tortillas and a few other minor things and saw a pork shoulder blade roast for 99 cents a pound. I know in other parts of the country that might not raise any interest, but here in the San Francisco Bay Area, or at least in the suburbs where I live, finding anything but chicken for less than $1 per pound makes me pause. Hmmm…. how many servings can I get out of that? So the pork roast caught my eye. It doesn’t look extremely fatty and it’s boneless, so that seems like a lot of meat. It’s about 3 servings per pound, so 33 cents per serving.
But I’m feeling adventurous and want to try something new. I looked through a few cookbooks and have a few backup plans but thought I’d try something new and solicit ideas from the blogosphere. I’m thinking 40 cloves of garlic, or something Cuban, or pulled pork (which I’ve got a fantastic recipe for already so is less intriguing). There’s only 3 of us to feed here so I’m looking for something that makes fantastic leftovers. I’ll probably end up freezing part of it because I hate to eat the same thing all week.
