From the Pantry Peanut Noodles for Budget #SundaySupper

When you think of budget meals what comes to mind? For me it is a meal I can easily throw together with what I have in the house or on super sale at the grocery store. There are some weeks where I busted my grocery budget the week before so I try to avoid the grocery store all together the next week. Those weeks I have to get creative in the kitchen.

The lone meat entrée this week is Char Siu Pork and it couldn’t be easier. My favorite type of crock pot meals, set it and forget it. When I came across the recipe it was actually the first time I had heard of Char Siu. Char Siu is Chinese BBQ pork. The sauce that the pork cooks in is the perfect combination of savory and sweet. Serve over white rice or noodles to soak up all that … [Read more...]
