Summer is here and for many of us this means both cooking on the grill AND summer entertaining. Did you know that when visiting the meat case pork makes a great budget-friendly option?
Last week I had the opportunity to interview Danielle Smith of www.extraordinarymommy.com. I learned a LOT about pork that I didn't know, including why it can be such a good choice for those who are watching a budget.
For example, just last week, the USDA said it is 62% less expensive to buy a New York pork chop than it is to buy a New York beef steak!! If you have a big family, or are entertaining a large group, those savings can really add up!
