Pork sirloin's on sale at the local grocer for less than $2/lb, so I'm going to do a whole lot of pulled pork and freeze it. And then use it up. Ragu, pulled pork sandwiches, pork in chile sauce, tacos, enchiladas, pasta sauce. Any other ideas?

Don't forget pork stir-fry and fried rice. Jerk spices and North-African-inspired spice mixes -- coriandar, cumin, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, a dash of curry powder -- are also really good on pork. You could do a pork-rice-pilaf thing with North-African-spiced pork, finely diced onion and garlic, raisins, diced dried apricots, and almond slivers or pine nuts, in rice.

Can you tell we eat like this a lot? Those spices just taste so good to me right now for some reason. Have fun with all that pork!

That sounds good!

I could do a curry with giger and garlic, maybe, although pulled pork seems a bit weird curried. Also maybe with oregano and lemon and tztziki? For vaguely Greek? I want to slow cook and pull all of it because I am NOT chopping up ten pounds of pork into cubes.

Also Korean soy/red pepper sauce and serve on rice, maybe.

And carnitas.

Burritos. Burritos forever.

You could add some to a dal or pea soup, or baked breans, and have that on rice, or with buttered toast, respectively. What about pork spring rolls or a filling for pie or puff pastry rolls? Sounds a bit involved, maybe.

Ahem... Beans.

I like 'breans'.

I'd love to make spring rolls, but I can already feel Thomas attaching himself to my leg, chanting "Up! Up, Mommy!" just as I started to roll them. Maybe if I had someone here to distract him.

Pie would be good. With vegetables and cheese.

I believe you mean bream. Sea bream.
