Dinner Tonight - November 17th

I found some frozen cooked pork roast "pieces" in my freezer above the fridge.  I thought I would heat the pork and I could either put it in flour tortillas with fajita seasoning and such for some kind of a fajita wrap OR I could add barbecue sauce and make barbecued pork sandwiches OR I could just serve it by itself with potatoes, a vegetable and some salad.  Well, I thawed the mixture out and realized it isn't pork roast but it is pieces of spiral ham slices.  I looked at it and I looked at the ziplock bag and sure enough I had labeled it pork roast pieces.

So we will be having scrambled eggs with ham tonight and I will either make some oatmeal pancakes or serve whole grain waffles to go with the meal.  I am off to the store to pick up some Clementine oranges on sale for $5.99 for a 5 lb. box and some bananas.  Fresh fruit will be perfect with this meal.

It's a good thing that I can adapt!

I love finding out I'm not the only one to plan a meal around "bits" in the freezer, only to discover they're not the "bits" I'd planned on! You just learn to zig when you thought you were going to zag. Story of my life :)

Hi Martha I,ve not caught up with all your posts yet but I can see you are still doing a great job, are you noticing any significant savings yet??

I am starting to notice the savings and plan to post about it at the end of the week.


Yep, playing it by ear, zig zagging, making adjustments, - yep that's me too.
