Today’s recipe is what happened when I was cleaning out the fridge and cabinets the other day.
The result was a delicious and hearty Italian inspired pork stew with lots of flavor, and the best part: it’s super simple to make!
We’ve been renovating parts of the house lately, which has had some impact on the grocery shopping routines (read “full blown chaos”).
Meal planning has not been prioritized, and when it was closing up on dinner time a few days ago I found myself scratching my head…I had absolutely no idea what to cook!
Truth be told, I’m not very good at planning my meals ahead usually either. I actually prefer to cook with what is available and come up with ideas along the way…given that there’s plenty of ingredients to choose from.
