Kroger Bargain Meal June 14-20

Bargain Meal of the Week

This week's bargain meal is a new one to me. A friend recently tried it, though, and she thought it was excellent. So, I'll be putting this on the menu soon. And, just in case you missed it, we had chicken divan last night. Yum!!

Grilled Pork Chops with Spice Paste

4 garlic cloves, minced--$0.15
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil--$0.10
2 Tbsp. light brown sugar--$0.10
2 Tbsp. coarse salt
2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 bone-in pork loin chops (use mixed pork chops instead)--on sale $1.79/lb--$1.79

In a bowl, mix together garlic, oil, sugar, salt, paprika, pepper and cayenne until paste forms. Coat pork with paste and wrap or cover in plastic, place in fridge for 1 hour - up to 3 hours. Grill.

Serve this with grilled zuchinni and cucumber salad (like this without tomatoes).
Zuchinni--on sale--$0.99
Cucumbers--on sale $0.49/each--$0.98
Onions--on sale $0.79/lb--$0.79

Total cost for this meal--$4.90

Sometimes life gets in the way of a bargain meal. That's what happened to us yesterday. The park called, new friends were made, and the blog was neglected. But, there are many, timely meals over at $5 Dinner's Bargain Meal of the week. Click on over and check it out.
