We announced the start of a new series of posts last week with a promise to launch today. The full details are here but the premise is simple – creating good, wholesome food at affordable pricing as a means to support and create a dialogue in which we can share how to eat wholesome food at a fraction of a price of fast food alternatives. The terms gourmet and cheap are relative – the term Tuesday is not.
Roasted pork tenderloin with the flavors of late autumn – pears, apples and potatoes.
We found pork tenderloins on sale – 1.2 kilograms (approximately 2.5 pounds) of protein for $5.18. We also purchased 6 Ontario Apples ($2.10), 3 pears ($1.07), white flour for bread ($1), 9-grain flour for the same bread ($1.20), potatoes from a farmer at the St Lawrence Market ($2.40) a small dab of oil and various spices to be named later in bulk ($0.75). We also used $0.50 of Kahlua which is completely optional (you can buy an airplane bottle of it for $2.55 at the LCBO and need less than a quarter of it) which is completely optional. All numbers are rounded up.
