I've seen lots of Christmas dinner threads and lots of of dinner party threads and lots of budget food threads.... so here's one that combines all of them!
My 5 closest friends and I have a gift exchange each year, and this year two of us will be cooking up dinner in celebration. $10 per person is our maximum budget, and we all love food, of all kinds. We're trying to come up with something that wintery, celebrationy, satisfying, and CHEAP. I was thinking along the lines of pork maybe.... more special than chicken, cheaper than the fancy cuts of beef, plus we all love consuming parts of the pig. Any ideas? Doesn't have to be fancy, just special and tasty!
