I bought some pork shoulder on sale at Fred Meyers yesterday.

Came home and cut in into chunks, marinated it all day in EVOO, Garlic, Onions, salt, pepper, lots of lemon juice and oregano.

I added some EVOO to a fry pan and fried it all up.

Made a Greek Salad
and Fried some pita bread in EVOO, salt, pepper, garlic and oregano.

It was a pretty inexpensive dinner and VERY GOOD!

If you ever watch 30 Minute Meals, the show's notorious hostess says that all the time. I know cringe everytime that acronym pops up.

But my favorite inexpensive meal is either chili or pizza

Sorry Iron. I've just always typed it EVOO... I'm a very lazy girl.

Chocolatechef, I'm with you there! Just throw in a nice hunk of cornbread & I'm a happy camper!
