WFMW : Pork Loin or Pork Chops

I shared how I save on lunch meat by having a whole boneless ham sliced.  This is a similar but different tip.

First, I know I could do this myself at home.  I'm not a fan of raw meat.  I don't like touching it or looking at it and anything with bones is the worst for me.  I spend last Wednesday Freezer Cooking.  With the warmer weather that is finally here, meals that we can grill out were a priority when I planned my freezer meals.

Pork Loin was on sale at Meijer last week for $1.69/lb but I wanted pork chops. So I took a pork loin to the butcher and asked to have it sliced into chops instead.  I was amazed when I opened the package of pork chops and found that the Pork Loin was cut into 20 chops.  I had no idea that I'd have that many. I portioned them out into freezer bags, added a marinade and put them in the freezer for upcoming grilled out dinners.  

So that's my Works for Me Wednesday tip.  Check out hundreds of others at We are That Family.
