Thrifty Tips for December 5
RECIPE FROM THE SALES
Albertsons has Hormel Pork Tenderloin tips on sale (buy one get three free!) and I have THE best crock pot recipe to go with this treat: Crock Pot Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin (here is a link to the recipe). I used a whole tenderloin the first time I made it, but with a sale price, I will make it work with the tips! Try it...you will LOVE it! Oh and it calls for ground sage. Get it in the international section, it is much cheaper that way.
Whole pineapple is just 99 cents each at Fry's. One of my favorite sites Wise Bread has 20 delicious recipes that use this sweet fruit. And because it is from Wise Bread, you can bet they are trying for frugal. Follow this link to all the recipes.
