In Response to Re: How are you saving money on meals with all the increases?:
Another money saving tip,buy whole chickens when they are on sale cut them up yourself package and freeze .Save the backs,necks and giblets minus the liver to make homemade chicken stock.You can even brown these first and it will give your stock a rich color and flavor.Buy whole cuts of meat like whole boneless pork loin these can be cut up into chunks about 1" and can be used for city chicken,cut smaller and used in pork fried rice,cut thin and pounded out for schnitzel,breaded boneless pork loin chops, cut thick and butterflied and stuffed with bread stuffing.Bone in roasts can be cut up and ground, save the bones for other uses like pasta sauce or just roasted as is for pulled pork or pork and gravy.I buy whole chuck roast when these are on sale to be ground,or cubed to be used in stew,thinly sliced for stroganoff, beef and brown gravy or pepper steak.Save any bones to use for soup stock.With a little time and work this can lead to big savings.
