Quick Pork Chop Meal for 4 for less than $10


Happy Monday! 
Another fresh week ahead…
What's on your to-do list?

I'm fairly certain that these warmer, spring-like temps
that are forecasted for southern Wisconsin will 
start to bring people out of the woodwork! 

Sunshine and fresh air
always seem to unearth the motivation that has been 
hidden somewhere in the frigid temperatures. 

I know I'm excited about spring 
(and taking down the Christmas lights that have been frozen to the trees),
how about you?

So if we are eagerly tackling some spring projects,
a fast and frugal meal is a must!

This pork chop meal is quick, easy, healthy, delicious and easy on the wallet!

Not sure it gets any better than that!


Start by preheating the oven to 450 F. 

Then, all you need is some thin-cut boneless pork chops,
these were $5.37 at Aldi
along with a packet of Ranch Dressing Seasoning,
$0.49 also at Aldi

Just sprinkle the seasoning on the chops and
bake for 10 minutes. 


That is all it took for 
these delicious pork chops!  

Pretty easy, eh?


They were paired up with a romaine salad
($1.99 at Aldi)
and some fresh strawberries,
which doubled as our carb for the evening.

I've been seeing great prices on great strawberries recently. 
$0.99/lb at Woodman's
was the best deal I saw last week.

The good news is that strawberry season is right around the corner!
