|Mr. Big Food got this four pound pork roast about three months ago and stuck it in the deep freezer. Saturday, he defrosted it, marinaded it for several hours (or was it over night?), and prepared it for roasting.|
|That’s caraway on the top.|
|Served with a veganized cabbage dish.|
It was great! Very moist. Recipes to follow.
Today, Mr. Big Food weighed out a pound and a half of leftover pork roast– what he needs for carnitas later in the week. And he froze the remainder– another pound and a half.
So, by my calculations, we spent just under $4.00 and will wind up with at least eight servings of pork. That’s $0.50 per serving. And yes, yes, yes, please do figure in the cost of the caraway seeds and the propane for the oven. And the onion (although we’ll soon be using homegrown onions). Plus the cost of running the deep freezer!
What are we up to now? $0.53/serving?
It’s fun to be frugal!
