Frugal Saturday Bulk Cooking

Ten pound picnic pork shoulder, $1.59 a pound, slow cooked to yield 17.5 cups of shredded pork(seasoned with spices, vinegar, and hot sauce), and a pot of seasoned bone stock for cooking beans, rice, and greens.

Our freezer is full, but I still need to wiggle in some turkey(.99 cents a pound) which my husband cooked today. Later, I added the turkey carcass to the pork stock and slow cooked it all day.

I've got Brunswick Stew in the red Folger's container.

I miss Brunswick Stew!

Well, cooking ahead is very smart and saves so much time. It saves money because you have something easy to throw together. Will have to begin doing this again.
