This trip is a classic example of how trying new recipes can really cost you. I made pulled pork sandwiches last night for dinner (recipe was from Cook's Illustrated) and needed paprika, molasses, worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke which are all things that I do not typically keep on hand. If I had decided to make a boring recipe that I've made a million times before I would have saved myself over $11 and if you include the rolls about $14. The good news is I got to make a yummy new recipe (I really liked it but it was very spicy so my husband who is not into spicy stuff thought it was so-so) and now I have a bunch of ingredients on hand that I can use in future recipes.
