I purchase and burn many CD’s, and I feel bad every time I throw away(recycle) one of the CD holders because I just know there has to be a way to reuse. I also love my bagel veggie sandwiches, and I make them ahead and stick them in a baggie because I have yet to find a perfect round bagel holding container…. that was until NOW. Meet the CD container than makes a perfect BAGEL DOME! Frugal, fantastic and what a great reuse. I feel like I am getting this from a diner everytime I prepare one and serve to myself.

Pork ~ Frugally Prepared

I love Frugal Meals and I love when meat turns out as fork tender as possible! I have found a great pork tenderloin meal that I have to share with you, because it is ‘frugal’ on your time and if you purchase pork tenderloin when it is on sale, it is a FRUGAL purchase! You can actually prepare this recipe with any cut of pork you prefer, I have chosen pork tenderloin because the purchase price for it at Sam’s Club was unbeatable!

The Balsamic Vinegar offers a key element to making the pork fork tender, this is one of those recipes that will make you the Hero in your kitchen with so little effort!

This recipe served 4, with nice portions

1 – 3# pork tenderloin (or 2 -1.5# pieces)
1 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 water
Baking pot sprayed with Pam
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic cleaned and ‘x’ slit
1/4 C Balsamic Vinegar

Simply prepare roasting pan by spraying with Pam
Add Water

Add Pepper onto Pork
Add Olive oil to water
Add cloves of garlic to water
Spread Balsamic all over roast

Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until pork is between 145 degrees and 160. Take out of oven, allow to set for about 10 minutes, and shred if fork tender or slice.
