One for the roast, one for the strips for stir fry and one to freeze for next week or the week after. Leftover roasted pork can be used for sandwiches. I did not put an onion down on the grocery list for the bread dressing, so if you need onion in this dish, add it to your grocery list.

3-Spinach Salad, french bread. See recipe below for Spinach Salad.

4-Pork stir fry with Ramen noodles. Use pork strips, broccoli and mushrooms for stir fry.

5-Taco Soup, corn muffins. Tortilla chips, sour cream and avocados for toppers. See recipe below for the Taco Soup

6-Bacon and tomato sandwiches. Add $1.28 to the week's food budget and buy some Kroger Value french fries to go with it if desired. Peach Raspberry Crisp for dessert. See side bar to take you to the entry that has the link for the recipe.

7-Spaghetti, sauce, garlic bread

Spinach Salad (Beth C., who gave it to Ginna B., who gave it to me)

Fresh spinach, washed
shredded or thinly sliced cabbage or some cole slaw mix
sliced strawberries
diced apple
Brianna's brand poppy seed dressing
(halved grapes, but the budget did not allow for grapes this time)
(Toasted amaranth and cooked quinoa are also added as are sugared cashews but I did not allow for them in the budget this time. Also adding cooked chicken or pork is good.)

Taco Soup (Kathy G., who gave it to Margie M., who gave it to me)

1 lb. of ground beef or ground turkey
1 small to medium onion, diced
1 can of corn with liquid (15 oz.)

1 can of diced tomatoes (28 oz.), or two smaller cans (15 oz.)
2 cans of tomato sauce (8 oz. each)
1 C. of water
1 package of taco seasoning

Brown ground beef. Drain grease. Sautee onion or cook in a bowl with a small amount of olive oil in it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Combine everything in a pot, heat until hot. Serve with toppers.

Shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese
jalapenos, pickled or fresh
sour cream
sliced olives
sliced or diced avocado

The Utah peaches at Bashas. My friend was telling me that her friend takes the sliced, peeled peaches and puts them in a ziplock baggie. Then she puts that in a pie plate and freezes it so that it forms to the pan form. She then takes out the pan once the peaches are frozen and stacks them. Then when she wants peach pie, she takes out a bag of pie form peaches and plops them into a pie crust.
