FRUGALITY- "Prudence in avoiding waste." (

Why This Blog?

I am on a pretty strict food budget; I also pray that my family and I will never go hungry, so after so many years of being creative with limited food supplies and money (including a three-pound whole chicken turned into 13 meals for the 5 of us), P-R-A-Y-S became a food and household budget philosophy. It can be anything that keep you in line with your budget. Like PORTION, ROTATE, ANTICIPATE, YELL (from joy of having money left over) and SAVE. Each post will show how this philosophy was broken down with every dish and budgeting I share. So hold on to your wallets and stay tuned!

Just Two?

Just two. Ingredients that is!

Panda Pork Chops

3 lbs. pork chops, cut thick ones in half to thin it out
Panda Express Orange Sauce (Costco or Panda Express)

Cut and rinse out the chops. Lay out into a glass baking dish. Pour over some the sauce and spread it all over the chops. Cover tight with foil. Put dish in cold over then set @ 350F for 1 hour. After 1 hour, poke holes on foil to release some steam and bake for 15 more minutes.

The result is some of the most tender pork chops you'll ever have!
(Sorry I have no pics... The kiddos dove in as soon as it hit the table... Maybe next time!)

PULL recipes that you can REINVENT with lesser ingredients but do ATTUNE your new dish with those the family's accustomed to. That way, you'll guarantee some YIPPEES! and big SMILES!

More great tips next time!
