September 11, 2008 - Pork and Bean Cake
For those that do not know, I am saving money buy purchasing food through Angel Food Ministries (need to save money for all of these vitamins and supplements I take). Angel Food Ministries is basically a food buying club sponsored by the USDA and local churches. For thirty dollars you get a box of food. Normally, it is primarily frozen meat, frozen vegetables, a boxed starch item, dessert, and a condiment or two. It is designed to feed a family of four for the week. The food is valued at 50-60 dollars in the local grocery store. There are no income requirements since it is normal food, just purchased in bulk by Angel Food Ministries.
I am pleased with the quality of the food and it is super convenient. All of my friends that also do it are pleased as well. However, sometimes I do not know what to do with some of the food items that are part of the basic box. For example, the following are a few things I previously made that I never would have if I had not found out about Angel Food through a friend of mine.
-Italian Sausage Gratin
-Tater Tot Casserole
-Cranberry and Chicken Nugget Casserole
Well, I now need to do something with a can of pork and beans. I found a recipe for Pork and Bean Cake on Allrecipes.com. I am thinking of trying it. Has anyone out there tried it?
Til Next Week,
