We don't usually buy the "expensive" OM sandwich meats, but during fresh tomato season, we eat alot of tomato sandwiches, and Daniel likes a slice of "summer bologna" on his. One store was having a 5/$5 sale on the bologna, and since it wasn't going to put me over budget, I decided to go ahead and buy all 5, and hopefully they will last through the fresh-tomato-sandwich season. I froze all but one packet, so it should stay fresh just fine.

The meatloaf on menu will be made with 1/2 beef and 1/2 pork. I was wondering how I could use the ground pork that I have in the freezer, then I saw a meatloaf recipe that used both beef and pork, so I will try that in my recipe.
