Is anyone else swimming in Pork? I have been doubling the $1/1 Hormel Always Tender coupon from 5/17 for all kinds of free pork. The problem is I have NEVER cooked pork before. Here are a few recipes I am excited to try out. Next time you run to Albies to double, take that coupon, it has meant free pork for me each week Albertson’s has doubled.
