Recipes for Leftover Cranberries

Cranberry Apple Chicken
I found this recipe on a blog called Surviving College Life The recipe is easy to do and very inexpensive. It calls for a whole can of cranberry sauce, two chicken breasts, and a cut up Granny Smith apple. Bake it in the oven for 40 minutes. You can upsize the recipe for it to feed more than two people.

Easy Pork Chop Saute with Cranberries
This recipe came from Delish. You can use up 1 cup of cranberries, either fresh or frozen, in this meal. The recipe takes 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes of cook time. The best part is that is includes pork, which is a very different taste from the turkey that your family may also be trying to use up after Thanksgiving.

Cranberry Orange Parfait
Looking for something sweet? Try this recipe from Food Network that was created by Melissa d’Arabian. The recipe will use up one 10 ounce can of whole cranberry sauce. Add some yogurt, orange juice, orange zest, orange marmalade, and the rest of the ingredients. This could be used as a dessert for either of the two previous recipes, or all by itself for a special treat.

Cranberry-Avocado Salsa
This is one of Martha Stewart’s Recipes. It will use up 3/4 of a cup of halved cranberries. This fresh salsa also includes cilantro, avocados, jalapeno, honey, and more. It sounds to me like it would have a bit of a kick to it that is softened by the sweetness of the other ingredients. The Martha Stewart website suggests you serve it with pita crisps or tortilla chips.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
