via Daily Prompt: Tart

If you are a follower you know I LOVE pinterest! I love finding new ideas and ways to save money. Today, I give you frugal ideas with Oranges, Lemons, and limes.

Let’s start with a couple oh so yummy recipes

3 ingredient Orange chicken sauce – You need BBQ sauce, orange marmalade, and soy sauce…

Lemon Parm Pork Chops – You need Pork Chop, Parmesan cheese, panko bread crumbs , lemon, olive oil, and eggs.

2 large eggs
1 cup panko bread crumbs
3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese
zest of 1 lemon
4-6 boneless thin cut pork loin chops
salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 tbs olive oil
lemon wedges for serving (optional)

Whisk the eggs to blend. Place bread crumbs in another dish.  Place the cheese and lemon zest in a third dish.  Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chops completely with cheese and lemon mixture, patting to adhere. Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the panko bread crumbs, patting to adhere.

Heat up 3-6 tablespoons of olive oil in a large over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook about 6 minutes on each side, or until nice and golden brown and the temperature reaches 150 degrees in the center of the meat.

Fruits are for more than cooking.

Does shopping leave you feeling subdued?

via Daily Prompt: Subdued

We live in a small village (graduating class of 20ish.) We have a meat market, a dollar general, and a Caseys. Budget wise I’m left with a few decisions pay extra to shop in town or drive the ten miles to go to our nearest Wal-mart. It might seem like an easy choice but its not. The Meat Market is fresh and has soooo much more flavor than Wal-marts meat and of course Wal-mart always has a way of distracting the mission of the list.

Cut your average bill by using these tips I found on Pinterest

Strawberry roll ups – I rarely buy the roll-ups from the store the prices are insane and I’m not all about foods packed with sugar and preservatives laying around.

3 ingredient meatloaf – You’ve neglected the shopping this week.. Do you have a box of Stuffing, hamburger, and milk? Good you have meatloaf!

Cheesy garlic bombs – $2.50 for 6 breadsticks? Nope… not in this house.

Caramel green apple chips –

Freezer hashbrowns – Buy too many potatoes?

Dehydrate your potatoes

Perfect pork chops – should be pantry friendly except for chops and lemon

Easy ingredient exchanges -We have all had those “Oh crap Im outta….” moments

Non-food

Vicks shower bombs – I haven’t bought these in forever because the price was insane

Avocado face mask – I’m the only one that eats Avocado and we always have that one banana that goes bad… PERFECT

These are only a few of my favorites. Do you have any budget friendly ideas?
