    Last night I winged it and made a delicious pork lo mein. I used the .25 cabbage from a few weeks back, .88 cent baby carrots and Kroger $1.59 pork loin as well as free Barilla pasta. It was so good!
    Tonight will be a clean out of the fridge - random dinner or pork lo mein leftovers or beef, asparagus and tomato pie leftovers too!

    Tonight we are having chicken quesadillas (using leftover crockpot chicken from Sunday night's dinner), corn, & cantaloupe. I'm back on the cooking bandwagon this week and looking forward to some healthy frugal meals.
